We received some beautiful tulips last week, so thought I’d photograph¬†them with some of our treasures.

Just waiting for the masses to descend ūüėȬ†‚Ästso thought I’d write a post. We’re holding these little gatherings once a month now; they are super fun. Here¬†are a¬†few picks:

We had a peaceful, lovely day working in the studio yesterday. Here are a few shots I took of the studio while taking some pics of GJ working for his Patreon site.

Our friend Annie is extraordinary and lovely. She’s a painter, fabric artist and wonderful chef. Many of my posts have already included her home and amazing cooking. When last we were there, the light was so gorgeous that I had to take many photos inside her home. We have some of Annie’s art in our on-line store, and if you are in Victoria BC, visit Eclectic Gallery who carry her art cards and fabric creations.

Beautiful Annie

Annie has a way with fabric, even if it's just draped for curtains.

GJ recently finished a new clock-like piece. I love the way it rings a bell every 6.4 minutes. The video can be seen here.

We have so many amazing and fabulous artist friends. I though this blog might be a good way to showcase them. I’ll show them to you as I have time and invitation to visit their studios, or they have a show in town at which I can photograph their work.

Our friend Gareth has a show on right now at Phillips Brewery. Phillips has a monthly show at their Government Street location. Gareth’s work can also be seen at the comic book shop he co-owns, Legends on Johnson Street. His work is awesome (and prolific), his sense of humor intense, and he has the cutest family that can be seen.

The wall of originals. Prints and books are also for sale.

A great turnout!

I think you can see the show until the end of May.

Gareth is The Perogy Cat.
