Sable Island – Day 4 & 5, Aug. 2013

Day 4 & 5 on the island have seen quite a bit of difference in the weather . . . from very high winds and torrential downpours to a stunning sunrise this morning followed by overcast, fog and then back to clear skies late this evening.  The weather here is ever changing and continues to remind me just how little we actually control.  Who knows what tomorrow will bring, but be assured, I will enjoy myself!

SABLE ISLAND – August, 2013

MADE IT TO SABLE ISLAND!!!  Today, Day 3, has proved to be very stormy with lots of rain and high winds however it let up just enough for us to grab our gear and head out for awhile.  The weather has not allowed for me to work on location (it also rained all day yesterday) so I have been working at the station and using the photo reference from the laptop.  Here are a few photos  . . . enjoy, I sure am!

Getting Ready for Sable Island

Getting Ready for Sable Island

Rae-Anne LaPlante (who I am traveling to Sable Island with) just made this short video clip about “getting ready for Sable Island.”  I’m actually posting this while sitting in the airport in Nanaimo waiting for my flight to Vancouver-Ottawa-Halifax.    Sable Island or Bust!

Shaw TV Interview

Shaw TV Interview

Here is a link to an interview with Rae-Anne LaPlante from Shaw TV.  This was filmed at my studio last week in regards to the “Musical Ride Series” of artworks.  Although he is not shown, my husband Paul is holding the horses in the background and doing everything else that makes it possible for me to accomplish what I do.  We are a team and I’m simply the visible portion of the team.   

Exhibition and Unveiling of the Newest Musical Ride Artwork

We are delighted to announce that the next exhibition of the Musical Ride Series will be on Aug. 3 & 4th at Arbutus Meadows Equestrian Centre in Nanoose Bay during the performances of the RCMP Musical Ride.   This is the first time that the series will be shown in conjunction with its inspiration, the RCMP Musical Ride.  To commemorate this event, I have created a new piece and RCMP Supt. Marty Chesser has kindly agreed to unveil it!!  We are hoping to do this after the first performance (beginning at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday).
