October and the Show Circuit!
So it's that time of year again - when we start thinking about the upcoming holidays and gifties we might want to choose for people.
I don't know about you, but I usually pick gifts that are unique, handcrafted, maybe personalized, but definitely personal! (Also, true confession time - I usually find gifts that I like too - and often end up buying one for myself!)
Its also the busy season for the art shows and for custom works - yikes! Emma and I have several shows coming up;
Nov 4th Macville PS in Bolton, ON
Nov 11th Vegfest, London, ON
Dec 2nd The Marketplace, Vellore VillageCC, Vaughn,ON
Dec 9th Homer Watson Gallery, Kitchener, ON
There are new pieces that are being unveiled - such as the Tiger (scratchboard & watercolour 5x7") shown above. So much fun!
This is one of the new images that will be up on the website, and Etsy very soon!
I currently have 3 custom orders on the go, Including one that features 6 different animal friends...
Both Emma and I are rapidly filling up all the custom spaces that we will be able to have ready by the holidays -If you are thinking about ordering a pet portrait for the holidays, (for yourself or someone else) please get in touch soon!
I hope you are enjoying the gorgeous, weather! And if you pop in to visit any of the shows we are doing, please stop and say hello!
Mention this article and we have a small gift just for you.
