Belated Happy New Year to all of you. Thank you for your patience. I have been so busy checking things off my monthly "To Do" lists that, to my chagrin, "compose and send newsletter" has remained incomplete month after month, often bullied to the bottom of the list by looming deadlines or commitments. My art time, when not spent sketching or painting, has been filled with computer work consisting of me making applications and submissions. I am pleased to share that my computer time has had wonderful results.

To begin with, I am honoured to report that one submission resulted in my election to the Ontario Society of Artists, a professional association for visual artists. Founded in 1872, it is Canada's longest continuing art society. In May I will attend their meeting at The Arts And Letters Club in Toronto to receive my pin and certificate. 

My submission to the London Artists' Studio Tour was also successful. I look forward to welcoming many of you to my studio. You will see some familiar paintings, several new ones in various sizes and price points and several works in progress destined to be exhibited during my solo show in November. I applied for and received a grant from the Ontario Arts Council to help with associated exhibition costs and am very grateful. More information about my exhibition will be sent in later newsletters.

As always, I am grateful for your continued interest and support. Thank you.
