Witch Way...................

















































































Well readers its that time of year as Hallow eve,Samhain(Witches New Year),Day of the dead,All Saints Day is upon us....I send u blessings from my hood here in the outback of small town Canada.
The Art Residency continues to fill my days in and out of the studio...just when I thought things would slow.nope another creative event,project,proposal has my name on in large letters. This is not about complaining but more about counting my blessings each and every day for this new experience.
Studio time and the daily commitment is truly paying off in some big ways,I have approx 10 pieces in some part of evolving. This past Thursday I began volunteering at the alternative high school in the next small town about 10 minutes from me.Yep teenagers the kewl thing is its all about the creativity baby...Next week we are doing Graffiti on T-shirts..Let me give u all some history of this community..its all about the farming, a factoid is its the corn capital of BC..Mostly Dutch and German is a large makeup of the community.
Now I am going to throw this out which will give u more insight....Have u seen the movie "Pleasantville" if not may I make a suggestion to take a viewing for those of u that haven't experience small town living this movie sums it up in so many ways..ok so I digress moving along I feel at times like I'm of the set of this movie...lets see a combo of some ignorance and stagnation to change wraps it up here although I can laugh about it cause I've had many living experiences in small towns I grin and nod then take myself into my studio to work it out..
On Friday it was a full day of thrifting..Thanx to Tina K who so kindly took me about Chilliwack to show me where many treasures are hidden and I hit pay dirt which helps me bring my pieces into full being.
The next show here at Ranger Station Art Gallery is the Annual Miniature Show
November 4th- November 29th.

  2. I have books and alters all over my house too. I don't think you can have too many of either.
    Thanks for your blog, I find it interesting. I love all the pictures and seeing your process unfold.
