New sales

I sold 18 cards of my West Highland White Terrier, Brody in the past month.

I want to thank those individuals who enjoy his pictures and hope they bring a smile to their recipients too!

Many thanks!

Happy 2014

Hello All,
We have just weathered an unbearable ice storm in Toronto and as the ice descended on everything, we also lost our power, heat, electricity etc. and basically lived in a dark ghost town of ice for the past week.

Many are still without power huddled in freezing homes and apartment buildings.
The only positives other than the decency and kindnesses of neighbours, friends and strangers was the winter ice palace that domed the City of Toronto and I hope to post pics over the next little while.

I want to wish all of you an inspired and Healthy 2014 with much inspiration and continued joy for the art of art.

A grand win!

I posted a headshot of my West Highland White Terrier, Brody, here on Redbubble over the summer.

This picture was submitted to a photo contest to the Toronto Westie Rescue Walk and Fun day where 795 photos were submitted under different categories.

I am very proud to say that my picture won Best in Show, out of all the pictures submitted. It really was a remarkable day.

Rose Perfection

One of my roses caught the attention of Perfume House executive on Facebook.
It inspired him to create a perfume around my image and although the image was not used on the packaging, I am credited for the inspiration and that was quite an honour.

The fragrance house is the established designer/perfume house Robert Piguet and the scent is called Rose Perfection and is carried in Harrods!

Quite flattered!

Esperanza

I only now just learned of the sad passing of one of our most beloved hosts..Esperanza.

She was so very gifted as an artist, always vibrantly unique and she had quite the following. She also hosted many groups and always took the time to leave encouraging comments and favs.

Polly Brown posted a beautiful tribute to her:
Esperanza

May she rest in peace. I was a great admirer of not only her work but her spirit.
She will be sorely missed here.

Happy New Year RedBubblers!

I have experienced an amazing year looking at some of the finest and innovative photography, watercolours, oils, sketches, textured images, patterns and insightful writings that you have graced these pages with. I am in awe of your brilliant techniques and expressions.

I have read encouraging comments on each other’s pages, beautiful tributes to those who have been taken too soon and wonderful stories and pieces of history I would otherwise never know.

I want to wish you all a Very Happy and Healthy New Year and I look forward to 2013 and finding out what your new journey’s will be? I know it be wonderful and wonderous!

Happy New Year everyone! Applauding you here!
