And I'd like to invite you to the Christmas HandMade Market this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Honsberger Estate Winery in Jordan, Ontario. The market runs daily from 11-4 daily. If you enjoy buying local, this is the place to find fine artisans, beautiful craftsmanship, food, wine... all in one place. I will be offering my small paintings for these three days at a very special market price of $50. So if you've had your eye on something, now is the time to buy it! Shop, sip and savour!

Last night my daughter and I had the pleasure of attending the opening for Barbara Muir's latest show. It was such a treat to see Barbara's luscious new paintings in the flesh (so to speak : ). If you are not familiar with her work, please check out her blog. Her show is at Studio Vogue Gallery in Toronto and runs till November 29th. Check it out here.
Also, it's HandMade Market time! Definitely a seasonal highlight. Please consider this your personal invitation if you are in the area. I will have my small daily oil paintings for sale. Food, wine, and 80+ vendors will be at Honsberger Estate Winery in Jordan, Ontario (Canada).

Below is how it would look in a room:
And in other things that make me happy: interesting colour drips on my studio floor.
Have a good day!

Today's painting: a lemon danish. Usually my props do not appeal to me in the slightest after I've finished painting them but this was an exception. A mouthful of zingy, lemony goodness. Mmm.
My sketch for Inktober. This time I added a splash of colour.

Someone brought donuts to work so I stole some of the leftovers to paint. In case anyone is interested in donut matters, they are from Tim Hortons.
And in other creative news I have taken on the InkTober Initiative in which I intend to do a pen sketch each day of the month. I want to thank Crystal Cook for telling me about it : ) It began in 2009 by Mr. Jake Parker as "a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year."
Today's sketch is of some office plants.
