Our first snowfall, cold weather, death of my trusty old car, impatiently waiting for its replacement, Remembrance Day, returning to Eastern Standard time, Christmas Bazaars and Open Houses and Art Shows abounding; November is an exciting and busy month , if occasionally bittersweet. I love the cold weather and its accompanying change of wardrobe and menus, the increased activity at our bird feeders, the building excitement of Christmas preparations, but I dread the impending scary driving, scraping windshields, and freezing rain that winter brings.

Here in my studio I have been getting work ready for Christmas shows at Westland Gallery (London) and Illumine Gallery ( St. Thomas). Both galleries will have my "tablescapes" available but in different formats and sizes. Westland's work is watercolour mounted on cradled board while Illumine will feature smaller paintings framed shadow box style. Any of these would make a wonderful gift for someone special on your list or a lovely indulgence for yourself, should you so desire. For more information about the shows go to Upcoming Events on my website, .

I have been continuing to explore the world of linocut prints and am enjoying the technique very much. I am also planning and painting watercolours in preparation for the 2018 Spring Shows. I am trying out a few new ( to me ) colour palettes and subject matter as well as continuing with those I have been exploring over the past three years.

As always, my studio is open by appointment. Thank you for your continuing support. I hope that the remainder of your November is more sweet than bitter.
