My miniature tableaux are in progress. An enjoyable contrast to my large canvases. Will keep you updated.

After a too-short visit to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, I have much to process. Most importantly, I got to be re-acquainted with my godmother, Mai Onno. It was a thrill to see many of the exquisite, delicious pieces of her work and to visit her studio. She is a hurricane; I wish I could have one tenth of her intensity and passion.

I can't wait to get back in the studio.

I need some more small metal cigar boxes. I will make some sort of tableau in each. This one is just started.

The Master Painters' Retreat with Harold Klunder on Pender Island has just wrapped up. Thirteen artists ensconced in an idyllic forest setting painted their brains out for five days. For me the experience was life-changing. Harold's insight and warmth, new friendships, exquisite food by Colleen, fog, Barbra. All made for an experience that will percolate in my soul.

Today we had a delightful visit at the studio by ten women from Victoria. Thank you to Barb for arranging the trip. Please come back any time.

It's always fun to do something different. The O'Hares have been freshened up and made a bit more zany. Just awaiting a top coat for protection from the elements.

Next week it's back to some serious painting. Our Master Painters' Workshop on Pender Island with Harold Klunder starts on Monday. Thirteen experienced painters with a superb painter and mentor.

Will try to post some images as soon as I can.

Ephemeral. Transient. Impermanent. The blue painting with pink butterflies (2008) no longer exists. Or does it? After many layers of paint, it became Bubblelark (2011). See the butterflies peeking out?

These paintings emerged from my huge collection of stuff recently. They were made 47 years ago, when I was just 5 years old. My mom, organizer extraordinaire that she is, labelled them with the artist's name and date executed. Miljon kallistusi, Ema.

As a bit of a change, I've started my second ever restoration project. These beautiful garden creatures belong to my close friends. The O'Hares need a little freshening up. The project has started.

Thank you to all that attended our show on the Victoria Day week-end at Sea Star Estate Farm & Vineyards. We couldn't have done it without the team of David, Mark, Lisa, George, Joanne, and Jim. About eighty people enjoyed the opening gala on Friday night. We appreciate your support.
