"Through the Strange, new essences, creating the world anew"

Well the show is up. You can see all the images on my website, click here:

In the picture below, I am giving an artist talk on my work. Petrina McNeill, the Lake Country Art Gallery manager is helping me to hold an accordion book with the collection of all the shapes I created in my "Transformations" series. On the table you can see a plate with pomegranates, pears, decorative corn and a a fresh ear of corn, a curtain tasssle and a potato masher. These are all the items that I abstracted from to create the hybrid shapes found in all the Transformation series.


What a great experience we had in Lake Country, B.C. We stayed in an Owner Direct Vacation Rental, which turned out to be the best accommodation for us. Two and half bedrooms that can sleep 7 people. As well the Grapewood Cottage had two bathrooms that had a spa like feel with heated tile floors. It had a very comfortable living room and everything you would want in a full kitchen and a washer and dryer.

The views were spectacular, across from us was Wood Lake and behind us was their 7 acre orchard including these black walnut trees. The next photo shows the view from the top of their orchard.

One day we drove to Predator Ridge and  Sparkling Hill Resort where we had a delicious lunch in a very fancy dining room with this million dollar view.

 

We had such a fabulous time in the Okanagon, great weather every day with the most beautiful scenery. The people there were so nice. My experience at  Lake Country Art Gallery  was wonderful, Katie Brennan the curator and Petrina were welcoming, helpful, and lovely women.
