Gearing up for OMG Studios

OMG STUDIOS is opening October 7th! My room is almost ready to move in and get back to creating. I LOVE the space and location. ( 57 E. King St, York) It is filled with light and has high ceilings that just beg me to do large canvases. So many possibilities! We will be open on First Fridays and by appointment or chance. I do plan to paint in the space so there is a good possibility that you will find me should you happen by. 

 My work will be in a few exhibits this October. The first is an invitational group show honoring the wonderful Louis Appell. The city of York mourns his passing but is ever grateful for his love and generosity in so many areas. I will have 5 pieces painted en plein aire at Melbourne, Louis beloved home and gardens. My good fortune was to work for the Appells on many projects over the past 25 years. The first painting I did for him was a portrait of their scruffy  little dog, Tigger, as a Christmas gift for Jody. Over the years I have been challenged by Louis and Jody in many art projects on the estate. Among them are a Winnie the Pooh mural in a spring house and a shell grotto that is a backdrop for a Rudy sculpture. 

York Water Company is also having an exhibit of plein are pieces created at Lake Williams. Quite a few artists turned out for a picnic and day of painting. It should be a diverse show. Reception is September 22nd. 

Thats enough for now. Time to chase the new kitten. :)
