Art by the Lake

Once again this year I am happy to be part of “Art by the Lake” — the annual outdoor show of the Lakeshore Association of Artists. The exhibition takes place on the lakeside grounds of Stewart Hall (a place I’ve painted many times) on Saturday and Sunday, September 12 & 13. It’s always an honour to be exhibiting with this talented group of artists, and there’s no nicer way to spend a September afternoon than wandering around looking at the art. This year the raffle prize will be my painting “Lake Water”, so if you come by my booth don’t be surprised if I try to sell you some tickets. The money raised from the raffle (as well as a portion of the proceeds from all sales of art) funds a mentorship program for a Visual Arts student through The John Abbott College Foundation. The show will be on from 10 am to 5 pm both days, so if you are in the area, please come by to say hello.


As an added bonus, there will also be eight artist demos at the show, at different times on Saturday and Sunday afternoon. My demo is at 1:30 pm on Sunday, and I’ll be demonstrating ink and wash technique like the one I did on the blue house on St. Joachim in Pointe Claire. I hope you come by to say hello.

    Shari that sounds like a wonderful weekend. I love both paintings. My brother and partner are about to head off to NSW to make an art installation and I’m very proud of them getting on the road and doing their stuff.


  2. Both are very nice. I especially love the second one (street view). Great!

    I really love how you handle “water” every time….so good….I have this mantra…”water is nothing but reflections of the surroundings”…..and you handle it so pleasingly


  4. Beautiful work. Calming, relaxing to look at, yet full of life. Hugs.

    Amazed again to see how well you master a complex composition, love the light, the colors, it’s like I’m there!
    as a learner I would really like to see a reference photo to compare and study your composition, that would be so interesting!

    What a wonderful thing to fund the mentorship program. And thanks to Louise for asking about the reference photo. I like that the car was left out and the people added. And the curb has disappeared under lush foliage. The strong colours transform the scene. Who’s counting windows…
