It’s April, and that means it is almost time for our annual Oxford Studio Tour here in Oxford County, Ontario. My studio has been one of the locations for this tour since its inception nine years ago (I also look after the website and some other stuff!). I will have plenty of work here for visitors to see. If you’ve never been out on the tour, it is a great way to celebrate spring, which I am hoping is right around the corner… here is a view out my front window yesterday:
So yeah, we’re not quite there yet. But the daffodils in my back yard are really trying to bloom. The ones out front are a little slower but they are hopeful. Here is a painting I did of the ones out front a few years ago – it’s still available, along with several other watercolours in a variety of styles:
One of the newer fractals that I showed at our recent Artists of Oxford show at Ingersoll Creative Arts Centre, is Diaphanous. It will be here for the studio tour, along with some other new pieces. I will even have a couple of Artifact scarves available for purchase.
I hope if you live in the region, you’ll grab a friend or three, hop in the car, and make a day of it. There is a ton of talent to see on this tour, as well as a lot of lovely countryside, and I especially hope you’ll make it out to my location, #6, at the south end of the county. Here is a google map of the whole tour.
Keep an eye out for our red posters advertising the tour around the region, and our printed brochures designed by artist and graphic designer Rhonda Franks (she’s at location #7 along with Sue Goossens, who is the founder for the tour). The brochures include descriptions and maps to help guide you around the tour. If you’d like me to mail you a brochure, please contact me!
