I want to start blogging from here instead of blogger where I have been for many years so I'll publish the same post on both for a while until I do the permanent move.
I'll also just start doing it instead of waiting to have everything sorted out and organized, sometimes if we wait for everything to be perfect, things never happen!
So with that, I'd just like to invite you all to please join me at the 31st TD Art Gallery Paint-In! Over 190 artists will bring their studio to Moss Street this coming Saturday July 21– and I'm excited to have been selected to be one of them!
I will be artist #116 on the artist map which will be on the East side of Moss St, between May and George, at approx. 119 Moss St. Please come and say hi, it will be great to meet you and/or see you again! For more information please visit: TD Art Gallery Paint In

I have so much work to share with you all and I will start just one at a time! This one is from the Ashcroft trip back in May and it was the first painting of the trip. On the way there, we stopped for a night at Sun Peaks, BC and following the GSP (incorrect) directions we ended up on the wrong road! No clue how it was planning to get us there. Anyway, we liked what we saw and came back the following day to paint, we set up and painted fearing the storm the storm would hit but we were lucky and it passed!
Tengo tantos cuadros para mostrarles, voy a hacerlo uno por uno...... Este es del viaje a Ashcroft este pasado Mayo y fue el primer cuadro del viaje. Habíamos decidido pasar un par de noches en Sun Peaks, BC antes de ir a Ashcroft y siguiendo las direcciones (incorrectas) del GPS terminamos en el lugar equivocado! Ni idea tengo de dónde quería llevarnos el GPS. De todas formas nos gustó lo que vimos y volvimos al día siguiente a pintar en este lugar. Empezamos a pintar con miedo de que se largara la tormenta pero por suerte pasó!
I am an artist living in Victoria, BC, Canada. I love to paint the beauty around me, capture moments and memories. I paint because the process gives me immense pleasure and joy. I paint because it allows me to remember places I have been to, moments I have lived. Just like music can in an instant transport you to a different time, my art has the ability to take me back in time and place and put a smile on my face. I paint because it allows me to imagine my next trip or my next walk in the woods. It mean it to be an invitation for you to pause and just simply enjoy the moment. Hope you enjoy my art!
