We Three Bees

We Three Bees - 24x24", acrylic ...

Been seeing lots of bees lately, especially since my boyfriend is a beekeeper. I now have lots of opportunities to take some close up photos of them while he's working at the hives. He's fully garbed out in his bee suit, while I'm just hanging out beside him in my regular clothes getting my camera super close up. Haven't been stung yet! Bees are nice. I rather like them...

Little Red Run

Little Red Run - 30x30", acrylic ...

We had some great sunny weather on our ski vacation in Whistler at the end of Feb. "Little Red Run" is the name of this ski run on Whistler Mountain. I was just enthralled with the fantastic shadow patters of the trees. It was a great trip with some great friends. But I have never skiied in conditions as cold as this: -21C, absolutely FREEZING when you are going fast. Frostbite on the nose for sure. Thank goodness for those little hand warmers that you keep in your gloves, otherwise I would have had to learn an alternate way to paint, sans fingers ...

SPCA fundraiser

Victoria SPCA "Just Desserts" Gala

For the third year in a row I am involved with the Victoria SPCA fundraiser "Just Desserts" Gala. I can't wait! It's taking place on Saturday April 30th, in downtown Victoria, at a very cool location: 'A' News Studio. The studios will be transformed into a lounge type atomosphere with fabulous live music. Al the sampling tables will be specially set up for mixing, mingling, tasting and enjoying! The evening will feature a silent auction, fantastic raffle, decadent desserts and savoury treats.

How will I be involved? A customized pet portrait, by moi, is one of the raffle prizes. I'm also donating an already completed dog painting to the silent auction. And I will also be decorating the venue with a few of my pet portraits, just to add the the theme of the night.
