New York Trip

Posted on April 25, 2013 at 9:25 AM Comments comments (42)

Our recent trip to NYC was very exciting, seeing the New York City Art Expo 2013 as well as NYC sights. I developed a new painting with light technique while there, using camera movement,first from the Empire State Building at dusk, and later in Times Square.  See the Painting With Light portfolio.

We found the architecture in the downtown Manhattan area especially lovely with sculptural elements on many buildings,especially in the West Village,Soho and Greenwich Village areas. Th...

Webinars cancelled

Posted on January 28, 2013 at 10:00 AM Comments comments (39)

Due to insufficient response to warrant continuing with the webinars, they are now suspended, probably permantly. They were requiring over 100 hours per webinar to write,edit,test,record, set times, do auto-emails, etc, yet demand was next to none. There were also certain issues including the necessity to edit down too much in order to fit the time frame for webinars. Also some issues with poor quality sound in parts of the webinars. With no way to edit, recording over and over in attempts to...

My hubby Robert Arnold, also an artist, and I are pleased to announce that we have joined Foyer Gallery, Nepean, Ottawa.

Ottawa Art Expo Report

Posted on December 20, 2011 at 10:05 AM Comments comments (39)

This is a bit belated. The Expo was very successful from the point of view of public reaction to my work. I was swarmed with people fascinated and puzzled by the medium. Everyone wanted to know all about what it was and how did I do it. The second day I brought my Wacom tablet to demonstarte at the request of some who actually came back a second time to see it.

Many people said they had to try 4 or 5 times before they could catch me to talk to, as I was so busy with questions. In fact ...

Getting Ready for Ottawa Art Expo

Posted on October 28, 2011 at 11:50 AM Comments comments (19)

It has been a hectic, laborious process getting ready for the big Show. About 6 weeks solid, with all the little details. Over $4000 in printing,show costs. Kind of reminds me of getting ready for a wedding: lists,lists,too much on the mind at night, early mornings.

But it has been exciting. Can hardly wait to see it all displayed at the Show. We set up this afternoon, and the Grand Vernissage, by private invitation only. If everyone brings all they are allowed, we will have over 300 p...

Cautionary Tale

Posted on October 22, 2011 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)

In preparation for the Ottawa Art Expo on Oct 29,30,in which I have a booth, I booked a print job for some 2012 calendars featuring my photobased digital paintings for the reproductions kiosk. Last year the same company did a great job printing the same type of calendar, so I thought I was "safe" using them again. BIG mistake!!. The results were so dark that the calendars were unsalable, and will have to be turfed out, as I can't allow my name to be connected with substandard work.
