Best of the Holidays to You

Each year is uniquely its own adventure. This year has been filled with travel, family, painting, photography, long walks and simple abundance in the most contented combination. Thank you for being part of my 2014!

Tis the Season

Well, today is the day!

Today is the day that Creative Potager holidays begin. Thank you every reader who dropped by especially those who took the time to comment and be part of a delightful, passionate and intelligent creative community. I have enjoyed your companionship, your humour, and your vulnerability.

Today is also our first anniversary. David and I eloped one year ago today. Here is the evidence – as we prepare to share cake with friends who stood up with us.

We wish you the very best of the holiday season.

I look forward to seeing you again with a new post on Monday, December 27, 2010.

Before we go too far though, I invite you to drop in to Leanne Dyck’s The Sweater Curse blog today where I have a guest post “Within a Curse.

Sprout question: What is your favourite holiday season greeting?

Thank you for your community, support, encouragement and purchases of my photographs, calendars and paintings in 2010!

Please note: Creative Potager will be on holidays beginning Saturday, December 11, 2010 and will return on its one year anniversary Monday, December 27, 2010.

Creative Potager – where imagination rules. Be inspired.

Trees Mist Sun

I looked out the big windows over the valley and ran for the camera.

How many times have I focused in on these evergreens across the way? Each time I try to capture the wonder I feel when I see how the light is accentuating their beauty. I am never quite satisfied but I share them with you anyway.

It is full on Art Days for me until the end of Monday December 6, 2010.

Today I am taking my oil painting “Cabin on Shore” over to our fancy Oceanwood Inn to be placed prominently on a small easel. I am honoured to be their feature artist for the month of December.

Then I am taking my oil painting “Whisper” and two canvas photography prints down to the Mayne Island Reading Centre (the Library) for the Mayne Island Trincomali Community Arts Council Light and Dark group show that opens tomorrow evening at 7:00 pm.

This evening I am going to go to the Mayne Island Hardward’s Décor Store (or Sue’s Place) for their ladies night. My prints, calendars and cards are included with many special items that have been brought in for local Christmas shopping.

But Friday December 3, 2010 at 7:00 am PST right here on Creative Potager is when the really big event begins. The first of three original oil paintings will go on sale. The second will go up on Saturday and the third on Sunday. After each of the three paintings become available they will remain on sale until sold or midnight PST Monday December 6, 2010, whichever comes first. So exciting!

There is a pre-post with all the critical information for Buyers which is now posted.

Sprout question: What advice does your wise-self offer for creative abundance?

p.s. I hope you will join me and post your encouragement, thoughts and any interesting links for the duration of this special Creative Potager event. You have each been so much a part of my work this year. I would be thrilled if you showed up with your party shoes on.
