Getting ready for the Fernwood Art Stroll

This weekend the back garden is being used for an outdoor art show. For the first time I'm participating in a neighbourhood art walk. It's been fun but a bit of a push to get ready and to figure out how to display the different types of art I've made.

The big paintings look nice arranged around the fountain and on the side of the house. Plus I have a table with a portfolio of unframed prints for people to browse through.

I've dug into the archives and pulled out some older monoprints and paintings. My theory is that if I still like them I might as well include them in the show.  So I have art work from the past 19 years!

Some of it is in sleeves on a table, some of it is hanging on the bi-fold doors I found this spring. And some of it is sitting in a basket to be looked through. I'm told to expect about 70 people--if the weather is good. And there may even be some sales.

I have made some cards from some of my paintings so perhaps some of these will sell. And you never know, maybe someone will fall in love with one of the bigger paintings and want to take it home.

There are 13 other artists taking part, all within the Fernwood area. If you're in Victoria, take a look at the website and download the brochure and map so you can come by and take a look:  

Now all we need is a dry day. The forecast calls for a 40% chance of rain so I've rigged up some umbrellas and tarps. But it will be so much nicer if the day is sunny.  Hope to see you here on Saturday or Sunday.
