“In Celebration of Canada” Powell River

Exhibition of the Musical Ride Series at the Powell River Town Centre Inn, Apr. 15 – 18, 2012

As first time visitors to Powell River we were both so impressed with the vibrant, creative and friendly atmosphere of this town.  Having just finished our showing of the Musical Ride Series, we feel that we have been welcomed into this community and leave knowing that we have made new friends.  Many thanks to Shelley Halliday and her very capable staff at the Town Centre Inn for their support in bringing this show to Powell River.  Also, many thanks to the Bruce Denniston Bone Marrow Society for providing assistance with set up and promotion of the show.



Unveiling of “Table of the Fallen”

Sorry this post is a bit late . . . I have had the great honour of creating a very special commission for Staff Sgt. Major Marc Lavernge titled “The Table Of The Fallen.”  It was unveiled on April 14th, 2012 at the Powell River RCMP Regimental Ball.  I was pretty nervous about having to make a speech, but it all went well and the reaction after the drape was pulled off, was gratifying!  It was an absolutely wonderful evening . . . the Dwight Hall (a truly beautiful historic hall) was decorated to the hilt.  The meal was gourmet and the dance band was great.  We had intended to leave early as we still had a show to set up for the next day, but ended up dancing til the wee hours of the morning.  It was simply too much fun!

“TD Art Gallery Paint-In”

I am delighted to announce that I have been accepted to participate in the Victoria Art Galleries fabulous “TD Art Gallery Paint-In” on Saturday, July 21st!!  (formerly known as the Moss Street Paint-In)

I will be demoing and showing pieces from the “Wild Horses of Sable Island” series.  As soon as I know where my tent will be, I will post a map.  Can’t wait!!



Art of the Horse Workshop

May 11 – 13th/2012 “The Art of the Horse Workshop” at Twincreeks in Duncan , B.C.

We had a small but fantastic group at this workshop.  We covered an incredible amount of information and I am so proud of the work they did!  My students continue to teach me.

Deb and Launie of Twincreeks were wonderful hosts and do such a fabulous job of creating an environment that makes it easy to work and play.  And the extra bonus was the wonderful weather!  All in all, it was a great weekend with new friends and all of us, knit together by our common love of horses and art.
