Summer is the time of  fun in the sun, colorful butterflies, thanking those patient teachers, congratulating the young graduates and smiling with the newly-weds. What better time for my new "Little Gems Collection".  

I have been having fun creating these small pieces. These whimsical, highly textured and affordable acrylic and mixed media pieces are full of reflecting light and colors. They are painted on gallery birch panels that can sit on a shelf, on a desk or be displayed on the wall. These small paintings have layers and layers of color, of acrylic medium and are finished to a hard, shiny surface.

 They will cheer up any corner and any heart:-) They certainly make me smile as I work creating them:-) . My next one will have spring flowers most likely.

  They will soon be offered through various art galleries in the Ottawa area and perhaps online, but here are two that are available for the time being directly from me. See close-ups on my Mixed Media page.

Do let me know what you think of them.
 Have a super creative week!

New 2-Women Show: "From Heart to Stone"

"From Heart to Stone": Two-women show at Cafe 111 Lisgar in the Ottawa City Hall.

My friend Luminita Serbanescu and I invite you to visit our new show, "From Heart to Stone" at Cafe 111 Lisgar situated in the Ottawa City Hall. The show will run until the end of June with a "Meet the Artists" reception on Thursday, May 9th from 1 to 3.

Luminita's main sources of inspiration are the ever-changing and intangible human emotions while I am attracted by the solidity and permanence of stonework: carvings, gargoyles and the Green Men created by so many different cultures. The surprising element in this artistic meeting is that we find a common ground:Canadan and the City of Ottawa is a backdrop of many or our paintings and our shared love of nature becomes a transitional thread between us.
Please note that the Cafe is open weekdays from 7 am to 4 pm.
