I can't wait to get painting again. Having my own (large!) space (at home!) like this is definitely a dream come true.
I wanna make more stuff!
Not that we're short on stock...
I completed the inventory last weekend and there are over 300 of my paintings to behold (and purchase!). A few paintings are in the house proper, decorating our walls downstairs and our guest rooms and hallway upstairs.
This room was a dingy grey mess before we gave it a refreshing makeover. Because of that, of all the rooms we fixed up, this is one room we would have liked to have taken a "before" picture of to compare (or made a brief makeover montage).
Small Pond Arts is proudly part of the 2010 Arts Trail, along with some other great artists, in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario.
Gallery Hours: 11am-6pm, Wednesday to Sunday. May 1 until December 24;
other times by chance or appointment.
Speaking of signs...
Krista and I came up with the Small Pond Arts fish logo about a year ago and we'd always planned to make large signs emblazoned with it for our house, etc., and a few weeks ago, we finally made them. Krista prepared the wood with primer and paint, I helped a bit with the tracing of the logo (two for the roadside sign, two for the sandwich board, and one for the gallery). and then Krista did a formidable job painting every single one. I'm still impressed.
About a week after they were finished, my parents came to visit and my dad helped us assemble and install the Small Pond Arts roadside and gallery signs:
The Silo, The Hesperus, and the sandwich board at sunset.
Once again and finally, Small Pond Arts signs and gallery.
