My Creativity Newsletter Theme continues this spring. In April I’ll be discussing my thoughts about stepping outside of your comfort zone. In fact, I applaud it. Please subscribe to the newsletter via this website.


In May my first poem will be coming out. The prose poem is part of a ‘Canada 150’ project, an anthology of poetry and short fiction about every territory and province in Canada. So exciting. More about that in a future blog update.

Recently entered a few writing and art contests. Best approach to those types of contests is to ENTER and START A NEW PROJECT. Yup. Best to forget all about entering and throw yourself into something new and exciting. I just put the finishing touches on my 2018 calendar project, an annual project in which I feature a thematic approach to 12 images and produce a desk calendar. NEW IN 2018 is a choice of a desk OR wall version of the same calendar. The theme is: Animal Farm, based on the novel of the same name by George Orwell.

Here’s an earlier version of one of the images I’m including in the calendar.

Speaking of entering contests: My abstract image, ‘Red Dress,’ received a ‘SPECIAL MERIT’ award by Light Space Time Online Art Gallery. This leaves me tickled pink (or, in this case, tickled red).

Just as I was updating this blog, I received a phone call that two of my 150 mm x 150 mm ’tile’ art were snapped up by buyers in the Owen Sound Artists’ Co-op so I guess I’ll be busy tonight replenishing inventory. How sweet is that? The image below shows you one of the tiles that sold. Thankfully I uploaded this image to my Art of Where web store, Painterly Cindy and More so more people can acquire the art in the form of a print.
