sea to sky weekend

Just a few photos of our weekend trip up Howe Sound to Whistler to drop off paintings at the new gallery. We got a glimpse of the new space a week before the grand opening, spent an afternoon in Whistler Village with all the St. Patrick's day revellers, then doubled back to Squamish to spend the night. We were about a month too late for the eagles at Brackendale. Next year! I have to say that the artwork Penny is bringing into her new gallery just south of Whistler at Function Junction is a notch above the work on display in Gallery Row in the heart of Whistler Village. I love that!

Very nice gallery space. Can you imagine having a space like that as a studio?!
You take great photos!

KJ: I actually grew up looking at an almost identical view slightly farther south. Jealous much? :) (I am -- of my childhood self!)

Michelle: Thank you and I am feeling pretty inspired right now!

Sam: Lucky Penny gets to work in there, too. her studio space (she's a cermaic artist) is in the back beside the kitchen. More photos of the space-in-transition here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/didrooglie/sets/72157629250956632

Something about the Sound. I guess I'm just an islands girl. :-)
