I made 8×10 prints of a few of the Tree Dancer drawings on a light card stock. And then I coloured them in with pencil crayons and touched them up with pencil & fine line pen. Here are some original drawings, and their colourized do-over. I really enjoy doing the colour work, and people tell me they see details that escaped them previously.

Here are a few trees that have gotten into my sketch book while I am waiting in a car.

The Dignam Gallery run by the Women’s Art Association of Canada has invited me to take part in this show. There are 6 artists showing the results of their own experience with the 6th Sense, which the curator Deniz Ergun-Seker feels is a key element in the artistic conversation. I was thrilled to be asked to share my own explorations and imaginings at the gallery. It would be great if people came by and saw the work.
The show runs from May 19 –
Once again the Bayview Art Tour is happening in our neighbourhood. Local artists and artisans open their homes/studios for a show & sale on the second last weekend of October.

Look for signs with yellow balloons. We will have maps available of the different venues –
