For this month, I decided to post some oil pastels that were originally created for a cafe in Victoria, BC. They were copied and used for signage, stationary and the logo. When I discovered them once again, I thought they would be ideal for an upcoming showing of my art at Centre Stage in New Minas, NS, in October of this year. I am very excited about this opportunity.

As the season carries on so does nature. There are new blossoms and back yard furniture moved around from place to place because the lawn had to be mowed. Here are just a few of the photos I took today. Enjoy!
