Some of you may not be familiar with Welcome Back to Otterville. Every year the little rural town I live in hosts a studio tour the third weekend in November. This is our 19th year. It’s one of the reasons we chose to settle ourselves here ten years ago rather than in some of the other nearby communities. Now I am so fully entrenched in the planning that I design the postcards and posters. My friend Sue Goossens is the founder and main planner though. She has done a lot of work over the years and we thank her! Otterville is full of artistic talent and many of the people on the tour are now long-time friends. Others are new on the tour this year and I look forward to meeting them… some other weekend maybe. 🙂
My studio/gallery, which is at the back of my house (go up the driveway and in through the patio doors from the deck), will be open from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday November 21 & Sunday Nov 22, along with the other stops on the tour. Here is a convenient sampler of the stops, and here is a map to help you find us. Once you get here, yellow flags will act as markers to guide you. We also have a Facebook page you may like to follow. I will, of course, have my fractal art on display, as well as many of my more traditional watercolours. And, I will welcome you with hot cranberry wassail to help combat the colder weather.
See you then!
P.S. I kind of wish the tour was on a week or two ago, when the falls (steps from my house) looked like this.
