Mirror, Mirror opened with a blast with a photoshoot by Jonathon Howe for his Red Chair Portrait Project. It made for a fun, laughter-filled evening.

The Sooke Fine Art Show opening night was once again a wonderful gala affair, with many lovely supporters and fellow artists in attendance. The artwork was stunning and it gave me great pride to see so many of my fellow Stinking Fish Studio Tour and Collective Works Gallery artists with works in the show and receiving awards.

I was fortunate to receive an Honorary Mention for one of my pieces, Gravatar. Pics can be found here:¬if_t=photo_reply&fbid=417249021178#!/album.php?aid=254898&id=219619521520

Spring has come and gone, in a flash it seems, with little time for creative activity other than some considerable spring cleaning at home. Time, with his dark mask and soft, slippery tread, continues to take off with my plans and schedules. I wrote about him in this post, Time, The Beckoning Thief:

A beautiful full moon in April reminded me of a poem I had written and an accompanying etching that I had created. This post, April Dream She Will - from poem to print, discusses the inspiration, process and flow of my work.

A rock concert attended in May was the inspiration for the following post, No More Yellow Brick Road. I find tremendous inspiration in songs and often refer to song lyrics in the creation and titles of my artwork. This concert not only led me back to the print described in the post but to an incredibly brave and inspirational man, Nick Vujicic.

June finds me working furiously on my upcoming show which I have titled Mirror, Mirror. Taking the concept of personal journey from my previous show in January, In Her Eyes, further along its labyrinthine path, this show explores the themes of self perception and presentation. This post, Will You Look In The Mirror?, presents one of the key pieces in this new show, which will take place at Collective Works Gallery in Fernwood, Victoria from July 30 to August 12. Stay tuned for further information about the show in the upcoming days and weeks!
