Everyone has dispersed after Christmas so I made it back into the studio today. Just finished this piece that I had started last week. The painting will go to the Federation Gallery in Vancouver for "Crossing Boundaries"-a joint show with the Chinese Canadian Artists Federation. The show opens January 27th, 2011. I will be in Mexico so unfortunately won't make the opening.
"Shelter" 16 x 20" acrylic.

I finally got most of the pre-Christmas stuff done and today had some good time in the studio. This painting is of Lions Gate Bridge from Ambleside beach in West Vancouver. It's a little different for me because of it's urban vibe. I do think that Vancouver is one of the most spectacular cities in the world, although I'm a little biased, having grown up here.
I got a good start on another painting today, as well. It will probably be my last painting for 2010. Will post it when it's done.

Not too much painting going on this past week. Last weekend we drove up to Whistler with our good friends Mike and Nancy Svob, for the opening at Adele Campbell Gallery. We had a great time, saw lots of old friends and the weather was perfect.One of the photos I took during my walk is posted here.
Today Alan and I spent all day putting up lights, including on my new studio. Tomorrow my women friends will gather in the studio for our annual wreath making session.In the evening the men of the group will make dinner.It's one of my favorite Christmas traditions.
