March is going out like a Lion

This March has been a crazy kooky weather month as per normal in lovely Grey County Ontario Canada

I continue to experiment with various media and have more recently gravitated to sketchbooks -For the last week I have enjoyed and appreciated a lovely free workshop journey online (Sketchbook Revival 2022)with a wide array of talented instructors organized and hosted by artist Karen Abend ! The perfect mid winter pick me up ! An artist needs to keep learning and growing! Although I have not taken every class-my choices have been personally satisfying and achieve the results of keeping me in the making groove. As my typical style of mixed media painting is more exact than loose I've appreciated the dive into other methods of expressing myself using a variety of mediums and being less result focused!

Este MacLeod project using numbers to create a series of cat drawings..

being less particular of staying within my usual boundaries has opened up some fun exploration!


Now with a little under a year of "retirement' (from my other full time career) - time has expanded in a whole new dimension.

I also created a painting for a local arts Youth led initiative exhibtion called "Building Bridges" -where I was privileged in creating a visual interpretation from a local senior's memory/recollections of her early life in this rural community. The Arran -Elderslie Youth council. A podcast was created in partnership with Trinity Theatre called the Arran-Elderslie Archives https://anchor.fm/trinity-theatre



From the group exhibit opening.. The painting was hung at Bonfire on Queen in Paisley, Ontario


Also ! News in my Etsy shop ! ..Art Prints are now available in two sizes -81/2 x 11 an 11x14 -perfect for framing .I am gradually changing listings to reflect this option ..But if you are interested in a particular print in 11x14" - I will prioritize-just send me a message!




I hope you are feeling fine knowing Spring and new sunshine-y days are on the horizon !
