Santa Clause parade

Santa Clause  Christmas parade here in st.thomas Canada. Very rainy night, but made for some pretty light reflections. This is the grand finale of the parade were the big man himself appears with a hearty hohoho merrychristmas and happy holiday to all!!!

Studio View

View from my art studio table. Its not much of a #view as it looks out at the neighbor's roof. Just as well, a great view would be distracting, best to give oneself over to inner peace and creativity when making art  To see what came out of all this art making visit my etsy shop at

Painterly look

via Instagram
Artists will recognize my painterly look, lol. This shirt is over 20 years old, my husband wore it as a teenager to his summer house painting job not knowing many years later he would marry an artist who would liberate it to wear while making art everyday. This is recycling at it's frugal artist best.

Thinking of wine

via Instagram
Out for a walk when we came across these wonderful wild fall grapes growing on the side of a house at the end of the street. Visions of geurilla wine making and covert midnight harvesting went through my head. Fortunately my husband usually talks me down before i get in too much trouble, lol.

November Flowers

The sun was sooo warm today, especially for November in Canada!! While out walking we were amazed to see there was still some south facing flowers in bloom, and strangely these weren't the only ones.

Windy water day at PortStanley beach

Crazy windy water day at Port Stanley beach lake Erie, my husband Shawn made it out to the pier but I chickened out ,the wind made it seem like we were standing in front of a sandblaster. Check out the poor seagulls trying not to get picked up and whipped around. Too dangerous to fly today!!
