The Art Of Living Fundraiser

I was asked to donate some work in support of The W.K.P Kennedy Gallery
North Bay's only public art gallery
for their Biggest Arts Gala of the season called "The Art of Living"
 So I donated two prints of my most favorite lino-cuts
 

 I went in yesterday to check out the preview and was so pleased at what I saw.
 
 
Such a variety going on...
 
 
There are quite a few artist-created Muskoka chairs...
 

There's quite a lot of original artwork...
 

 
The selection is pretty large and I am sure there will be something for every ones taste.
 
 
Super great birdhouses...
 
 
 
Paddles and furniture...
 
 
More Muskoka chairs (they are the main event after all)
 

It'll be a great evening with live music, food, drink, auctions, raffles.
Tickets are $150 for 1 artist-created chair plus all the evenings events, food & entertainment
or a $25 ticket gives you access to all the evenings events like raffles & auctions, food & fun.
It all goes down tonight, June 26th at 7pm at 150 Main Street East, North Bay for anyone near by!

Awesome Company

I have never ever felt the calling or urge or need or desire to have children of my own...
but I love being an Auntie and I adore my awesome niece...
 

I am so happy whenever I get to spend time with my Munchkin (she's one insanely busy kid).
So a day in the yard where I had her for company alongside some pastel fun was just perfection.

A Simple & Sweet Summer

This will be another short one as Blogger still isn't working for me
(another reason why I am so anxious to move this beloved blog of mine to my own new site)
Anyhow...
As you can see we've been outside with artwork and bunnies ALOT
 
 
Most sunny days, we're out in the yard by 10am
if I don't have a super sore head (like today's very awful bad one) to tend to
or if I don't have errands to run because getting the monkeys in on my own is never a sure thing!
 
 
Yuuji has been having a ball digging a new burrow (which we have to fill in at the end of each day)
 
 
I've been working on cute little lino-cuts...(Here I am redrawing a design)
 
 
It's been a simple summer so far.  Bunnies outside.  Art Outside.  Yard & House Projects.  Gardening.
 
 
I've been loving it and have been feeling really very blissed out.
I hope your having an awesome summer so far.
Until Wednesday...be well and thanks so much, as always, for hopping in.

Culprit

I was wondering who was pulling my newspapers and magazines off the table!!!
 
 
Well when I was sitting quietly reading the other morning I caught the culprit red-handed!

Back At It

Wow, that blog break seemed to go by really quickly!
But that's okay, I am glad to be back at it.
 

Well we've been up to lots of good stuff... One of them being lino cuts.
But I'll tell you abit more about it all later because Blogger doesn't seem to want to work tonight!

Teeny Tiny Blog Break

I've started to feel like things are piling up uncomfortably.
When your a head pain sufferer, your always falling behind, three steps forward, 2 back kinda deal.
I am feeling the need to concentrate, sort out and replenish some personal and work things...
 
 
so I hope ya don't mind but I am going to take a short teeny tiny little blog break.
Until June 17th I think (or maybe before, you know I have a hard time staying away!)
p.s. I'll probably still be using Instagram though if you wanna keep in touch there till I am back
