What a week it has been! A daughter graduating from university and an award for my triptych (currently posing as the banner for my blog). My gratitude and thanks to Linda Lovisa of New Moon Gallery for presenting me with an award of distinction at the Triptych Opening Night in Penticton. Go check out Linda's wonderful gallery in Westbank and drop in to the Shatford Centre in Penticton for the show which is on till the the 27th of July. It features the work of many great artists of the Okanagan Valley from Osoyoos to Vernon and beyond. I am back to the plein air painting again and though the above piece is one that I started last summer I have just recently finished it in the studio. It's a jewel of a lake and fortunately has some of the little remaining desert to the east of it with much of the rest of the valley covered in vineyards.
