I've been working on a series for an April, 2013 group show with some artist friends at the Key City Theatre Gallery in Cranbrook, BC. We've loosely determined that theme to be Summer in the Kootenays, and flowers abound in my studio right now. They're a great antidote to our grey skies and moisture of all sorts here in Creston at this time of the year.
I started this floral with a range of glazes in blues to create the sky.

I made a couple of amazing discoveries during completion of this piece. Discovery number one is that it is unbelievably difficult for me to take a 'square-on' photo of a larger piece of art (there's a reason they call me photographically challenged). Discovery number two is that in this lovely home we occupy there is not ONE white wall on which to take photos.
