Just completed and sent off my submission for the ASA exhibition "Fire" to be held in Edmonton and Calgary. My submission focuses on the aftermath of the Fort McMurray fire and the spirit of renewal and recovery that Albertans are demonstrating after this devastating disaster. I hope to hear some news after December 5. (Keeping my fingers crossed!)

Just completed a submission for a potential exhibition in Fort Saskatchewan for 2017. It would be based on my still lifes (oil and pastel) and entitled "Around the House." Here is hoping for the best!

Just in final preparations for the upcoming marketplace at the Ottewell Centre/Red Barn. I had hoped that more of my glass fusion pieces would be done but unfortunately there were issues with the kiln and my pieces did not get fired. I will have some pieces available but not as many as I wanted. Anyways, I am back to work and baking some cookies for tomorrow. Come out and attend!!

Last night was the wrap up for my extension class. If anyone is interested in experimenting with materials, often beyond their comfort levels, I would recommend this class "Drawing with Mixed Media." Great class and a highly creative instructor. I have included an example of my final project on Kurt Schwitters.
