Wishing everyone the best.
Merry Christmas!

Spanish Holiday

Spanish Holiday
Poured Watercolor

Last month I was scheduled to do a demonstration for the Nanaimo Chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists. This demonstration was to be on how I do my poured watercolors. I spent a few weeks preparing the process of which includes 5 pours in all. Since most of the pouring process involves waiting for things to dry, I decided to speed it up by doing 5 different versions of the same painting. Each painting, however, has something a little bit unique about them.
Unfortunately, on the day of the demo we had a snow storm. I decided it would not work for me to drive the 1.5 hours over the mountain pass to Nanaimo for the demo. So, now that classes have ended I decided to finish a couple of them. The first one sold to a friend as soon as it was done and now I need to finish the rest.

Here is another (smaller) version without the couple:

Moving to Vancouver, BC

My heart is sad and my head is spinning. Yet I am excited all at the same time! My husband accepted a position at a company in Vancouver, BC. That means that we are moving from Victoria and the island soon.

Moving here 4 1/2 years ago from Boston was the hardest thing I had ever done. The first 2 years were a nightmare not because of the place but because of several things that happened in my personal life. There were too many big changes at once. Then I started to paint and teach again. My position at the Monterey Centre was literally an answer to my prayers. I am still amazed by how it happened. Since then, I have come to love this place and the people. I have met so many amazing people and feel blessed by my associations. It will be difficult to leave.

However, we are happy that my husband has found steady work and has been offered a great position with an architectural firm. Yeah! It will be hard for me to start over and to build all new clientele in Vancouver. It will also be hard for our children to move from their friends and such a great neighborhood. I know that it will work out in time and it is for the best. I am excited by the prospect of new opportunities.

In the meantime, I will continue to teach at the Monterey Centre in January and I will be back on the island to conduct workshops.
