It snowed this week. You probably noticed. What was your immediate reaction? In spite of advancing years, when the first snow of the season happens I am a child again. The giddy excitement that bubbles up is momentarily uncontrollable. Visions of ice skates and toboggans and snow forts and snowball fights and snowmen will eventually succumb to the reality of icy roads and slippery sidewalks and shovelling and cabin fever. But before they do, I enjoy my childhood once more and dream of winter’s delights while watching the dreary November garden become beautiful again. That is the magic of snow.

There are magical things happening in and around London’s world of Art. There are currently so many shows and exhibitions to see. Two events that I am included in are the Miniature Show at STEPAC (Nov. 11 to Dec. 22) and Westland Gallery’s Square Foot Show,www. . Both shows offer some fabulous art by local artists at reasonable prices. Perhaps you can find a gift for a special someone or one for yourself!





CSPWC’s Open Water is still available to see online. If you haven’t already done so and if you love watercolour, go to  You will be glad you did I am sure.

Westland Gallery is hosting several workshops including a watercolour one taught by me. It takes place on four consecutive Thursdays from Feb.16th to March 9th at 6:30 to 8:30pm. The cost is $180. If you are interested, call the gallery at 1-519-601-4420. Please share this information with your friends and anyone who may be interested. Thank you.

Christmas in Bayfield takes place this weekend, Nov. 18 to 20 and Main Street Gallery Bayfield will be open and showing some of my paintings.


To end this newsletter, my hope for you is that you are able to find the magic of this season, if not in snow or art then somewhere else. As always, thanks for your interest in my work and for your support.

Take care. Be well.
