A Great Turnout for Thanksgiving Show Last Weekend

I had a great turnout for the Nanoose Bay Thanksgiving Studio Tour last weekend. More than 100 people came by the studio. Saturday was bright and sunny, and 60 people dropped by on Saturday alone.

A few days prior to the tour, I installed my new Notch Hill Art sign. No one had difficulty finding the studio


It was fun meeting so many people who were interested in art. I had planned to spend time painting in the studio while waiting for guests to arrive. However, the the studio was so busy that there wasn’t much time to paint.

However, I did start a new painting.


This photo shows that I have laid out the big shapes. I have used thinned oll paint to do a wash. As you can see, I am using a reference photo. I took this photo on a recent hike in the Nanoose Bay area.

If you have questions about my painting process, leave me a comment and I will respond.

Thanksgiving Studio Tour Next Weekend

October 6, &, and 8 are the dates for the next studio art tour. Twenty of the Nanoose Bay Studio Tour artists will be represented, along with some guest artists. This is an opportunity for art lovers to drive from one art studio to another to view artists’ galleries along with the spaces where they create their art.

I will have my Notch Hill Art studio and gallery open each day from 10 to 4. I look forward to meeting people and showing my work. I have begun painting some of the beautiful landscapes of Vancouver Island, and hope to be working on a new painting during the days of the tour.
