Last year I joined the Women’s Art Association of Canada. Actually I won a membership for a year and this year I extended the membership for another year. I was really hoping that if I belonged to a group like this I would be inspired to paint more. Unfortunately circumstances beyond my control made finding time to paint difficult.
Despite these time constraints I still managed to find some time to paint ‘small’. Often my inspiration came from on-line classes, especially Carla Sonheim’s classes. Every year at WAAC (Women’s Art Association of Canada) a special show just before Christmas is featured in the large gallery called ‘Small Gems’. Members are encouraged to submit small pieces, no larger than 48″ around the perimeter, framed. Also, the pieces can be sold for no more than $200.00.
This year I managed to complete four small pieces. Two I made earlier in the year and the last two I started and finished last week. You may have already seen the first two but they are now framed.
The next two were inspired by Carla Sonheim’s Flower Crazy 2 class. I love working with my Pilot Pens over a watercolour background.

My whereabouts is my neighbourhood as it transitions from autumn to winter. Blue skies and warm temperatures are appearing less frequently and are being replaced with rain and cooler temperatures. We’re enjoying the final days of autumn flowers. Gardens are being put to bed as the leaves begin to fall and blanket the roads with reds and yellows.
