Admittedly I don’t have much left to sell, but it’s a great opportunity to see where a number of wonderful artists work and there will be loads of their work for sale. Hope to see you there!

Contextural Artisan Sale

Our very succesful sale is all over, but I wanted to share a few shots taken after set up. I don’t think you can imagine the chaos  that was evident a couple of hours earlier when a dozen people arrived with all their goods and we had to start “making the magic”! It was enough to make us all crazy, but within a couple of hours we had everything set up and everyone was happy (I think). Here goes:sale 1sale 2sale 3sale 4sale 5sale 6sale 7sale 8sale

Something has changed on this website and I’m not sure what this post will look like, but I don’t have time to play around so I hope you can see everything clearly.

Next post I’ll try to share what I’m up to – assuming I can load the photo that I need…

extra(ordinary) photo challenge

Some of the most extraordinary things present themselves when you go for a walk. Nature just has a way of making that happen. Since we have been enjoying some wonderful autumn weather, I’ve been trying to take advantage. These are a few of my recent extra(ordinary) finds.

By definition monochromatic means one hue (color) and all the tints, tones and shades formed by adding white, grey or black to that color. I think it’s a challenge to get a good image using monochromatic color schemes. I generally work with more colors because I hate to limit myself. I hope you like my interpretation of the theme. The embroidered flowers are details of embroidery work on Mexican garments shown at the Textile Museum of Canada‘s Frida Kahlo exhibition. (which just ended) The screen printed fabric is a sample I printed this summer, and the mushrooms were in a grocery store in Toronto.
