Last year I joined the oldest women's art club in Canada
 -- the Heliconian Club -- a wonderful decision.  I've met such
super people, and been in some amazing shows.  I have been
lucky to be able to show my large works in the club's
beautiful space on Hazelton Ave.  I love working large,
and wish I had a studio space (in my home) that would let me go
even bigger.

I also enjoy working smaller.  This little painting was
inspired by a photo of the overwhelming abundance of
flowers in my house at the end of summer.  In fact my kitchen
looks that way now with miraculous white double lilies,
a late blooming amaryllis, gorgeous red tulips, and a cabbage
rose in full bloom.

But in summer, it's all local, from my garden and a wonderful
gardener who sells at the Brickworks market.

Whatever size I'm working in, I'm aware that the creative life
is a gift.

Have a loving what you do day.
