Shades of Summer Art Show and Sale

Today we opened early to accommodate the people who also came out for the annual yard sale held by Buckhorn Community Care in the front parking lot of St. Matthews Church.

Although it remained cool throughout the day it started off warmer 54F (12.2C) than yesterday in the morning but the temperature did not rise as much remaining a constant 56F (13.3C) throughout the afternoon with a steady rainfall until closing time.

The one nice thing about the rain and cooler temperatures was that the attendance was up considerably and we had a steady stream of people coming through the show all day.

Because of this I didn't even try to paint, instead I worked on a couple more sketches of sailboats which could easily be left when I had to talk with our many visitors.

Nine paintings were sold by Diane Collins, Heather Grant, Penny Little and Susan Sydney. Pottery was sold by JoAnne Connell Northey and small items were purchased from Diane Collins, JoAnne Connell Northey, Pat Harvey, Barbara McGregor and Bonny Windover.

I would like to thank new collectors Ms. Jessica MacKenzie of Selwyn, Ontario on her selection of Sunset Silhouette 2 (see post on 27 December 2011), Mr. John Van Laars of Cobourg, Ontario on his purchase of Simplicity (see post on 08 June 2011) and Ms. Bonnie Baker of London, Ontario on her purchase of Rapids 1 (see post on 17 July 2011).

We hope you will be able to come out and visit the show either today or before it closes tomorrow.

The hours for our show are:
16 Aug 14 - 10:00am - 5:00pm
17 Aug 14 - 12:30pm - 4:00pm
