....time for Christmas markets and more!
It's a busy time around our house.....every weekend since Oct 19 we've been at a craft market/show. I enjoy these shows, as I get to share my artwork with so many new people. It's heartwarming to hear their comments, and to listen to the memories that some of my work evokes.
And.....it's time for some new artwork...and cards of course. This fall, I focused on painting some more of the 'other' parts of Cambridge....not just Hespeler which I am most involved with.
I wanted to paint something that was winter/Christmas related to each separate area of Cambridge. Skating on the millpond of the Speed River was my choice for Hespeler.
"Game On at the MillPond" is matted for a 16x20 frame. It is also available in giclee prints and cards. (thanks to Paul Langan for his photo reference.
It is bringing back so many memories for people that see it....and also people who skate on it now!
For my Galt selection, I had to choose the view of the Grand River from Mill Race Park overlooking the steeples at Queen's Square. A silent twilight with softly falling snow was my setting.
For Preston, I chose the setting of Central Park, where "Candyland" is part of the Christmas in Cambridge festivities. I wanted a quiet look at the park, not the busyness of the actual activities of Candyland
Christmas in Cambridge.....it's going to be busy around here for a few more weeks that's for sure! And my market season ends with "Christmas in Cambridge Market" from Dec 12-15th at City Hall. Please drop in and say hi!
