Thanks for everyone's help and The Encounter Show


Across the Highway

This painting will be in the Encounter Show Then and Now.  It is one of
the first paintings I showed at the Heliconian Club, and is one of my 
favourites.  The painting is of the view across the highway from our
1909 #6 wooden school house in Nova Scotia.  I am very grateful
to Nova Scotia for all of the magnificent scenes that have inspired
my landscapes over the years.

Today I'm grateful to Dougal Haggart of the Heliconian Club, who 
offered to deliver my painting to the club for the upcoming show
because I won't be home when the show opens.  Please go to
the opening on Saturday, September 9 between 2 and 5 p.m.,
and enjoy some amazing art.

And I'm grateful to Amos Boratto of the Heliconian club for letting
me drop the painting off today, and to Steven van Schaik my
husband for driving me there.  I feel like I am back almost to normal.
And no I did not have COVID. I tested. So thank you everyone.

So enjoy the show. 

Have a loving art day.

Hi Evelyn,

Well this year that wonderful place has been hit by
every kind of disruption, so no idea what we'll find.
It has been a wonderful place for sure.
