Let it go -- artists and their creations

Last night Steven and I packed up two big pieces and two
smaller ones to go to the Encounter show in the Heliconian
Club this weekend. Please come out from 1 - 4 p.m.
on Saturday afternoon to 35 Hazelton Avenue in Toronto.
I will be there, we'll have goodies to offer in the beautiful space.
This morning a wonderful taxi driver from Beck Taxis
with a van showed up and we whisked that work down to the club.

Everything looked so bright and happy in that gorgeous space.
Our job as artists is to make the art we want to make, to
follow our heart's desire, and to hope someone else will
want it, and take it home.  The pieces I'm showing seem
like the essence of my landscape paintings and are all
about the Maritimes.  This is the new members show
for the Heliconian Club, and I just joined the club this
year, so I get to be in it.

(If you do end up buying a big piece I recommend the
lovely and reasonable taxi people to help you transport it home.)

Our house of course looks strangely empty, with bare spots
where the art has been, but there is more, more, more
art coming.  Promise.

Have a going to the art show day.
