Summertime painting

My friend Lisa has been a student for years, but has never come to Merritt Painted Petal. Last week she arrived for a painting retreat and finished two art pieces. She really enjoyed it and left extremely relaxed.

Sunroom Paintings

The sunroom has been revived with a change of furniture arrangement and now features my fruit and vegetable still life paintings. Stephanie says the the two cherry paintings look perfect on the easels.

Art in the Garden, Merritt, BC

These are taken from Merritt's first annual "Art in the Garden" show last month. I displayed my paintings in the garden of my friend, Jayne Yeadon's. Refreshments came from the Baillie House, delicious homemade goodies by Hiro.

The other treat was Sharon Hartwick playing the beautiful Celtic Harp. It was so lovely. The weather was perfect for the show, not too hot nor windy. We look forward to promoting next year's tour in July.
