Balance of Art

Today I’ve been working on matting a few of my watercolours to send to the Coast Collective Art Centre on Vancouver Island to put on display in their wonderful space.The pictures will help promote an upcoming workshop called “Balance of Art” that I’ll be presenting at Coast Collective on Sunday, September 16, 2012, from 10 AM to 4 PM.

The cost for the day is $90 and registration information can be found on the end of  the Coast Collective classes page at: Class code is 0912-JK-WW and the registration deadline is Friday, September 7.

Here also is the description for this fast approaching workshop:

“In this one day West meets East watercolour sketching workshop discover the secret to creating a successful piece of art: the balance of opposites. With nature as our inspiration; we will explore complementary colours, the value scale, positive and negative shapes, and structured vs. spontaneous styles of painting.”

Hope to see some of you there!

Gifting Angel

This summer has been an extra busy time and it’s been impossible to find time to blog. Still, today I finished a papier mâchè piece, Gifting Angel, created in preparation for the Papier Mâché Angels workshop to be held at the Coast Collective Arts Centre at Esquimalt Lagoon near Victoria BC. The workshop is not until Friday November 16, 2012 but it was time to begin to think about the workshop and to have a picture to post on the website.Though my interpretation of an angel is not very conventional, the process is easy to follow and the idea is to discover and form your own idea of an angel that reflects your ideas and beliefs.

For me two of the ideas that flowed as I created; walking through a rainbow and openness to the gift of truth in all it’s complicated simplicity.
