My painting Sky High Summer Joy
is featured in The Heliconian Club YearbookLast night was a big night at the Heliconian Club in Toronto.
The club is the oldest women's art club in Canada and is housed in an
extremely beautiful building downtown on Hazelton Avenue, that was
once a church. At the President's Reception the outgoing president, Mary
Perdue, welcomed the new club president Ruthia Pak Regis.

Members enjoying the presentations sit under
the work from the Encounter show. I loved
seeing them under the wall featuring my work and
part of a group of amazingly talented women in every area of

Club Yearbook -- an incredible honour. I would have missed that completely
if fellow artist, and new member, Faye Jordan hadn't pointed it out to me.
I met some of the artists in various fields and felt so happy

The beautiful rose I received for
being a new member.It was also a pleasure to have this lovely event going on in the
middle of our Encounter show, which was a delightful
backdrop to the evenings festivities.
Wonderful food was displayed beautifully in the center of the
club, and at the end of the festivities we were all offered
champagne to toast the new members and each other.

How wonderful!In other words a perfect night.
Have a supporting fellow artists day.
