Studio Tour coming up!

I posted at length about our ‘Welcome Back to Otterville’ studio tour yesterday on my watercolours blog, and I wanted to make sure everyone who subscribes to this one knows about it too.  There is a press release contained within that blog post, if any local journalists would care to deliver our story to their reading public.

This is our 21st annual tour (the 12th one I have lived here for), and every year it is slightly different.  The tour was founded by my good friend Sue Goossens, pictured here with me.  As you can see, she is also a very talented watercolour artist.  Our website is www.welcomebacktootterville.ca, if you’d like to see who else is on the tour.  If you are unfamiliar with my art, you may also see a good sampling of it here, and here.

I hope to see you here in Otterville, Ontario on November 18 & 19, from 10 to 5 pm.  It would make a great, stress-free day-trip for anyone in the area of London, Stratford, Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph, Hamilton, Simcoe, St. Thomas, and all points in between or south to the lake.  Look for the yellow flags, and I’ll be waiting in my gallery with some hot cranberry wassail!

Halls Creek Festival

September 10 & 11 is the Halls Creek Festival of Creativity in Ingersoll, and I will be participating again!

This festival was good fun last year and I kind of wished I was one of the attendees rather than an exhibitor – lots of learning and creating going on all over the place, and great live music most of the time.

I plan to have some of my fractals there – last year I ONLY brought the fractal metal prints – but I think I will also bring some paintings of fractals this year and some other paintings as well.  I also hope to do some painting while I’m there.

Check out the website for details.

New Fractals

I’m excited to have some new fractal art to show you in a week at the Oxford Studio Tour.

We have thirty-one artists at seventeen locations throughout Oxford County, Ontario, Canada in the heart of the southwestern part of this province.  It will be a fun day trip for anyone in the region – even those coming out from Toronto! (Wouldn’t it be nice to get out of the city for a day or two?)

Here is a preview of one of the fractals.  I have printed it (using Posterjack) on metal, 20×20″ and that is the only print I will do, so it is an original piece.  It is created digitally using the Mandelbulb 3D software.  As I find usual and striking for fractals, it looks very natural. It is pretty obvious what I thought it resembled!  I hope you’ll come and see it.  I think it would make a great piece to gaze at from anywhere in your house, while you consider nature and its mysteries, and it draws you in close, as well – as all fractals do with their self-similarity on smaller and smaller scales.

I call this one Ocean Floor:

Show opening this weekend

The artists’ group I am a member of, the Artists of Oxford, is having a group show at the Ingersoll Creative Arts Centre and the opening for the show is this Sunday, 2-4 pm.  I’ve got two pieces in the show, and they are both digital fractals printed on acrylic.  One is called Diaphanous, the other is called Indeterminate.

I hope you’ll be able to join us for the opening or make it to the show while it is on!

Show coming up

A little while ago I found out I’m in a show coming up.  It was quite a surprise to me, especially when I found out the date had originally been quite a bit earlier and was being changed to a later, unspecified date.  My complete lack of information was due to some sort of email communication glitch which has yet to be straightened out.  I have the information now at least!  Luckily, I have enough pieces to show as three of us are showing at once, and the date it is changed to gives me plenty of time to advertise.

I am very fortunate to be sharing the gallery space at Elm Hurst Dining in Ingersoll with excellent artists Heather MacIntosh and Bruce Hartley.  This show will begin on July 16 and run until September 17.  It is organized by Oxford Creative Connections Inc.  More details will follow soon, but I am planning to show about eight pieces of my fractal art and I wanted you to know!

Oxford Studio Tour this coming weekend

It seems that the first weekend of May has crept up on me and while I’ve been posting about the Oxford Studio Tour on my Facebook page and my Twitter account (@artnaturali), and on my other website, I neglected to do so here!  It’s this coming weekend already and I hope you haven’t made other plans yet.

I will be in my gallery/studio which is Stop #7 on the tour, to welcome you all this weekend. Visitors will be flocking to Oxford County, Ontario to view, enjoy, and purchase art.  I have an abundance to show.  Many of my fractal paintings, photos, and original single edition prints will be here, and many of my original paintings of other subjects.  These include watercolour paintings on traditional paper, on gesso-coated paper, and on yupo.  I will have two brand new fractal metal prints on display, as well as a new piece printed on acrylic!  In addition to this, there will be some new fractal photos, and some new non-fractal pieces in watercolour.  Brochures for the tour are available at a number of locations – including here at my studio!  To get you started, here is a map to my location.  I’m about an hour from Hamilton/Burlington, an hour from London, or an hour from Kitchener/Waterloo.
