Studio Table: The Reveal


Head on over to The Altered Page to find a list of over one hundred artists who have posted shots of their messy studio tables. As usual, Seth has inspired us all to share.

I can make just as big a mess as the next artist - believe me. However, I have spent the last few weeks purging, sorting and organizing and I'm still in that mode. So here is a shot of my 'art desk'. Not where I paint (that one is totally bare at the moment), but where the things I am working with are.

There are art supplies, my trusty Macbook Pro, some paintings that were returned from a gallery today, a book I am enjoying, a magazine I am featured in, our Studio Tour brochure, a couple of mailart postcards I am working on, bookmarks and Raven's dog treats. Raven and I work on her training in my studio too - there's space now to do that.

I'll be sure to grab a shot of my studio table when it's messy and post that another time. The important thing is to keep creating! Whether you are messy or clean :)

I'm Back!

Well. It has been QUITE a while since I have blogged. So much has happened since November 2013. I won't go into it other than to say that my family and I are facing challenging life changes and, for the most part, winnning!



So. I last blogged the happy news that "Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other" would be part of the OMMA [Ottawa Mixed Media Artists] Exhibit at Centrepointe Theatre Gallery in Ottawa, January 2014.


It was an amazing show! I enjoyed looking at everyone's work and catching up with artist friends. Some of them were congratulating me. For what? It turned out that I had won an Award of Excellence from OMMA for "Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other". Woo-hoo!

If you want to see the evolution of this painting, check out the last four older posts right here on "Often Medieval In Mood". I would love to hear any comments you may have.



I'll close with a mention of one the WONDERFUL things that happened this year... the adoption of our sweet girl, Raven. More about Raven in another post :)

Juried. The verdict: to be hung!



"Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other" will be part of the upcoming OMMA
[Ottawa Mixed Media Artists] Exhibit at Centrepointe Theatre Gallery

I am thrilled to be part of this show. Based on the work that I saw
when I dropped off my painting to be juried, it will be amazing!

I hope everyone is enjoying a creative weekend :)
