I've just delivered a bunch of new work to various galleries, including shipping these small tree drawings up to Invermere, so am ready to focus on Christmas stuff. Good thing as all I've done so far is order a turkey and nag Greg to put the lights on the house. I predict two weeks of frantic shopping and prep. It's tradition!
Yesterday was shipping day. I had the pleasure of working with Robin and Margie at Art-Centric on another project this year so I packed up a handful of paintings and FedExed them to Dallas for their Christmas party next week. The project earlier this year was to create a couple of paintings from which they made and framed a hotel's-worth of prints for guestrooms in the Hilton in downtown Santa Fe.
Meanwhile, I'm awaiting my copy of the CD Fields and Fences by Canadian musician Andy Jackson. I gave him permission to use the images of these two paintings, entitled Fields and Fences, for the cover art. The actual paintings now live in Winnipeg with Chris.
Finally, I am again lucky to have been juried into the FCA's annual medal show for signature members. The work is pretty amazing this year, so if you're in downtown Vancouver before Christmas check it out on Granville Island. This one is my favourite.
