Welcome Back to Otterville this weekend

One of my favourite things about opening my gallery for studio tours is the interaction with people who are seeing my fractal art for the first time.  It’s definitely not the same as viewing it online, partly because of the image resolution and detail and size, and partly because of the metal and acrylic surfaces I usually print on.  And for the paintings, the size and the detail provide even more of a difference from what you’ll see here on my website.

But the best part is introducing some to the entire concept of fractals.  If you missed the fun of reading my blog from the very start, back in 2014, and you don’t have a way to come this weekend to see them, I am linking you back to that first post here.

I would love for you to come and visit my gallery this weekend so I can share with you the joy and wonder I feel about creating vivid reflections of nature with both paint and with mathematics.

Just come to Otterville and look for the yellow flags – we welcome you!

November Shows

Today I will be setting up at South Gate Centre in Woodstock in preparation for this weekend’s Oxford Creates Art Expo, organized by Oxford Creative Connections, Inc.  I will have several of my newest watercolour paintings available there, as well as a sampling of my fractal pieces.  There will be many other artists, as well as authors, exhibiting at this show.

In two weeks, I will be opening my own gallery/studio doors to welcome the public for our 23rd annual studio tour here in Otterville:  Welcome Back to Otterville.  This will feature a much larger selection of my own work.  We have a very good variety of stops this year with several new artisans!  I will post again soon with more details about that.

For now, here are the details of both shows:

New Artisan Boutique in Clinton, Ontario

Last week I made the drive to Clinton, Ontario to drop off some of my art, and work a shift at a new store there called Mama & Me, the Canadian Artisan Gift Boutique’.  The business owner, Crystal, was the Grand Prize Winner of Central Huron’s Win This Space Contest, and has worked very hard to transform her vision into a reality.  As she put it, only 16 gallons of paint and 400+ hours of labour later… her shop was ready to open!  It’s full of handmade items displayed in unique ways mostly on re-purposed furniture, which gives it a nice, welcoming, homey feel.  The address is 17 Victoria St., Clinton, ON, and it’s not far from Bayfield, Goderich, and Blyth.  Open from 11 am-5 pm Tuesday to Friday, 10 am to 5? pm Saturday (not sure) and closed Sundays and Mondays.

Mama & Me storefront

Inside the shop Mama & MeThe Mama & Me boutiqueI took two fractal watercolour paintings, two fractal metal prints, two watercolour paintings from my ‘Cats of Italy’ series, and another large watercolour painting of lotus blossoms to be hung in the store.  I didn’t get to hang them while there, but we decided where they were going and she has promised to send photos when they’re up!  Here are most of them, waiting patiently in the area reserved for workshops:
