U100 SHOW - Mountains and bridge

8" x 10" BIrch Cradle
Available at U100 Exhibition

This is a collection of local views collaged together with artistic license. I love the light dusting of snow on the trees, which I have partially achieved with a gritty medium base.

This year two of the walls in the show were curated by local officials and this painting was selected by the local arts organizer, Ralph Donn for his collection. I was very honoured To have my work selected from over 900 paintings. There are no awards in this exhibition, so this is the closest thing to a blue ribbon. As you can see, by the time I photographed the wall on the afternoon of opening day, many paintings had already sold.

Currently I have a gratitude  sale in my Artfinder shop ( )
I also have a sale on holiday ornaments both at Artfinder and Daily Paintworks (click above and slide show)

The U100 Show takes place every year at Lake Country Art Gallery. This year there are nearly 1,000 works under 100 square inches and priced under $100. It will take the exhibition team over a week to prepare and hang this amazing collection. 

For enthusiastic early birds, the exhibition opens Saturday 19th November. Saturday and Sunday are hectic as buyers flood in to see small works by some of the top artists in the area and red dots flow as paintings are snapped up as gifts. I will be at the gallery both afternoons to assist buyers and answer questions. 

For last minute shoppers, this year the show closes December 21st but it's best to come early. In previous years we've sold a large portion of paintings in the first few days of the show and because buyers are allowed to take paintings off the walls, we have a fresh intake of art after the first week to fill spaces.
