First, I wish to thank everyone that took the time to enter our “Name the Painting” contest. It was a truly difficult task to narrow down the list even to the top contenders. A small group of friends and family spent many hours between last night and today going over the list many times . . . inevitably the last choice was mine to select “the one” from the many.
And the winner is:
“SABLE SPIRIT” entered by Aleshia Kiedaisch . . . congratulations Aleshia!! It has also now been posted under the contest tab on this blog.
The wonderful response to these paintings tells me that, although tiny, Sable Island and its wild horses hold a large place in the hearts and imaginations of Canadians. I would like to invite you to suggest other titles for paintings in this series. I may not be able to respond personally to all of you, but I will pay attention. The new paintings will be posted as they are finished on my Sable Island Horses blog.
We extended the Show too!
For those of you that live in proximity to my studio, we have had so many people calling and asking if they can come out to the studio to see the paintings that we have extended the show. The show and studio will be open daily from 1-5 pm until end of day on Sunday, July 3rd, or by appointment by calling us at 1-250-752-0395.
A most humble and heartfelt “Thank you” to all.
