On Saturday, April 21st of this month, I will be setting up a mini studio and doing a demo on painting in miniature at Excellent Frameworks in Duncan BC.
The demo will take place in the gallery from 1pm – 4pm and is open to everyone.
I will be working on a painting, answering questions and offering folks a chance to try their hand at a wee bit of mini painting. If you are interested in miniature art, and are in the area, please stop by and say hello!
If you love small works of art, please follow this link to the Howard/Manville Gallery’s 27th Annual Invitational Small Works Show. Located in Kirkland, WA, you will find a beautiful collection of small images worked in a variety of media, and I am delighted to be a part of this year’s show. Two of my miniatures available at the show are: “West Coast Morning” and “Tranquility”. Both paintings are acrylic on paperboard.
The last tiny details have been added, the antique frames selected and the paintbrushes finally set down…and I’m so very happy to be finished!!!
“Pieces of 8” is the title of my latest miniature painting project, featuring eight tiny acrylic landscapes, for the “Symbolically 8 Exhibition” at Gallery 8 on Salt Spring Island. The show is running now through to May 8th.
Gallery 8’s upcoming anniversary show “Symbolically 8 Exhibition”, on Salt Spring Island, opens on Friday April 14 at 5pm-8pm. This show features a wonderful collection of artworks by gallery artists including paintings, sculpture and more.

Here is my newest miniature painting fresh off the drawing table: “Old Red”. This piece was inspired by the hot, hazy days of late summer in the country. I love finding these gentle giants, slumbering and sagging with character, scattered across the countryside.
I had such a good time on Friday evening at Gallery 8 on Salt Spring Island, enjoying great company and a fantastic collection of beautiful art rendered on a small scale. Paintings, sculpture, pottery and so much more can be seen over the next several weeks during the Christmas Exhibition of Small Works. I am delighted to be a part of this show, which runs from Friday November 25th to January 3rd, and hope you will stop by to see it if you are in the area!
Looking forward to participating in the annual “Honey I Shrunk The Art” small works show at Matzke Fine Art Gallery on Camano Island. The opening party and potluck is Nov 19 and the show continues to January 15!
