Say hello to my latest plein air piece. This is the lovely Gibson Gallery located in Amherstburg, Ontario. My group, The Windsor & Essex County Plein Air Artists group exhibition “Painted on Location in the Great Outdoors.” is currently on display there until August 2nd. This painting will be one of over 35 paintings featured in my solo exhibition at ArtSpeak Gallery in Windsor, Ontario. This exhibition opens on Monday July 20th, and runs to Saturday July 25th. ArtSpeak Gallery is located in the historic neighborhood of Walkerville. It is my extreme pleasure to be showing my work in the gallery during the 13th annual Art Walk & Rock Festival. This festival is one of two annual art walks, and by far the best attended. There will be dancing in the streets to the rock bands. and foodies in the cafe’s sampling local wine, and craft beer. An event not to be missed!
…This former Michigan Central Railroad Station, ca. 1896, has been renovated to its original Romanesque glory featuring towering ceilings, hardwood floors and beveled glass windows. A full season of exhibits showcasing Essex County artists, traveling exhibits from Ontario museums and galleries and an unique Artisan Shoppe make this heritage building a vital center for the visual arts, offering art and craft lessons, an artist guild and three needle art guilds. A railroad museum, featuring artifacts and memorabilia, is housed in the attached caboose. ~Gibson Gallery
A painting of the place where you’re displaying your paintings. I think the Matrix is real. 😛
In all seriousness, this is such a cute idea and the painting itself is so cheerful. So cool!

Thanks Sam! It’s a sweet building. I was out there again today. It’s hard for me to get anything accomplished on a group paint out day. Sometimes I end up chatting more than painting. I started another painting of this building. I’ve had to pack it up unfinished twice now due to chatting way more than painting. 😀 I think I shall have to sneak out there when no one knows I’m going. 😉
