Pat is the owner of Mad Mango Cafe in Kelowna. There are always lineups because Pat makes the best Laksa and Richard's soups! A happy hard worker, Pat works 16 hour days, 6 days a week, but she always wears a sincere smile!
Drop in an see her portrait. You can't miss it!
"Ellen" won the award at OASIS Regional Juried Art Show for "Figuative/Animal" category. Many thanks to the judges and the Peachland Art Gallery and FCA staff and many volunteers. My thanks to The Pleasant Pear B'n'B for this recognition and award. The show is open until the end of July with 77 wonderful works to peruse and enjoy!
"Making Faces", my solo show at the Station House Gallery in Williams Lake, BC , had over 700 viewers.
I'm feeling pretty happy about that because for a community that size, that is a lot in 3 weeks! My interview with North by Northwest certainly drew people in. Some of the comments were, "Oh this is fun"; "What a warm feeling"; and "If this doesn't make you happy, there is something wrong with you". Gotta love that! Thanks art lovers in Williams Lake. Glad I could make you smile.
I love painting portraits! I'm starting a new series
called "A Display of Emotion". First painting completed: "Sharlene...Resignation".
If you are fabulous at showing your emotion through your facial expressions, or you'd like me to paint you, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those people who were still in bed at 7:45 Saturday morning, here is the link to her show: (I'm about 2/3 of the way through) https://www.cbc.ca/listen/shows/north-by-northwest/episode/15668017
With the snow falling today, I'm really looking forward to Spring, even though I know we've got a couple more months of winter, But this recent painting helps me block out the grey/white days and dream of blue skies and flower blossoms.
The picture I used as reference was taken by me last April in my friend, Pat's backyard in Sudbury, Suffolk.
Another in my series, "Faces of Ageing". Phil is most often in pain, but he always has a smile and a beautiful one at that. Always ready to laugh. Don't you just love his eyebrows? They go with his great crown of white wavy white hair!
