Working Schedule

Today was my last day at Art Rental & Sales Gallery. Over the past 2+ years, I have learned allot and met allot of great people: volunteers, artists and customers. ARSG is an organization dedicated to the local arts community with all proceeds towards the purchase of new acquistions for Museum London's permanent collection.

Starting next week I will be working a few more hours with the LondonPotters Guild, but bottom line is instead of working on 6 days week, I will work 4 days a week. I am really looking forward to that. Of course, I will still be doing all the bookkeeping for Keys by Troy. The plan: spend all day Wednesday working on my art. My new year starts February, with my artistic goals for the upcoming year being to work larger and add some colour.

Miniature show at Art Exchange

SS20 Richmond Tavern, London

I have been working on some miniatures for the 7th Annual Juried Miniature Show at the Art Exchange. An opening reception will be held on Friday, February 3, at 7:30pm.  I have finished a couple small streetscapes, this one will not be entered. Its very challenging to draw buildings this small, 3" x 4", figurative work is much easier (and much  more fun) to create in this size.

Drawing at the Market

I met my friend Susan at the Covent Garden Market on Thursday morning before work. I normally do not choose to draw flowers, but the colourful arrangement of Esthers Flowers and Gifts, just inside the Talbot Street entrance was so cheerful, I had to. The structure was very architectural. The containers were so geometric. Flowers were the minor part of sketch.
