Hello everyone, what an exciting painting week I have had. I feel exhausted tonight but in a good
way. I finished two small paintings and a large painting and started three others. I love to work
on more than one canvas at a time for many reasons.
#1. I am an impatient person and do not like to wait.
#2. I love to have different painting ideas swirling around at the same time so that
when one is percolating or a portion is drying I am able to play on the other canvas.
#3. I am like a kid in a candy store and sometimes it is good to have choices of
what to chose.
I am off to regenerate for a couple of days and then back to the joy of creation.
Have a wonderful weekend one and all.
Good morning, so much water has passed under the bridge since I last blogged, where to start??
Our exhibition in Halifax went very well and from there I travelled to South America to Peru
and Ecuador for two months. It was a bucket list trip that was finally achieved and exceeded
I have now been asked to exhibit in Cuenca, Ecuador in February of 2018. I imagine it
is hard for those who do not paint to plan this far ahead but as an artist I must have
the time to create the paintings. I have now started the series I will present in Cuena
and I am excited to see where the rest of the series will take me. The exhibition will
take place at Miquel Illescas Gallery in Cuenca, a beautiful space.
I am also involved with a group of local Victoria artists and we are having an exhibition
for the month of September in downtown Victoria at the Victoria Arts Council space
on Fort Street. We are Group 216, four very diverse artists who work in the same building
on Bridge Street.
I am being inspired by spring at the moment and also exploring painting on paper, which
I don't usually do but I am working through new ideas. The muse has been with me and
guiding me with colour, shape and texture.
Currently I have a feature at Serious Coffee in Cook Street Village for the month of
April and during the month of May I have a feature at Second Crack Coffee on
Bridge Street. Please come and have a look at some new paintings and enjoy coffee/tea
or some wonderful treats.
I look forward to all comments and please contact me with any interest in my new work.
Happy Easter and Spring to all.
Good morning, tomorrow our exhibition at Teichert Gallery opens called Land and Sea with myself
and Jeanne Aisthorpe-Smith. This exhibition will run until September 30th. Please stop by at the
gallery on Hollis Street in Halifax and have a gander.
These are two images in the exhibition, both are by Susan Geddes and are 30 x 30....see you there
on September 10 between 2 and 4p.m.
I spent the end of last week painting and rehanging my studio space for the Integrate
Festival next weekend. Please come down and have a look at my paintings in Suite 216A,
Rock Bay Square. The event runs from 3-9 on the Saturday, hope to see you there.
I am also in the process of sending my paintings off to Nova Scotia for the "Land, Sea and Sky"
exhibition at Teichert Gallery for the month of September in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Photos to
take and a list to be made plus boxes. An artist's life is full of wrapping and shipping and
carrying paintings to different places, all in a days work.
I personally enjoy all stages of the process and feel grateful that I have venues to
exhibit my paintings.
Enjoy this week and I hope to see some of you next weekend.

Good morning, I have now installed some of my paintings at Heart House in Victoria.
The Victoria Heart House is "your home away from home" for patients and their families who are
about to undergo Open Heart Surgery or other cardiovascular procedures.

Good Morning, I am excited about Love at First Glance Exhibition at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.
It is running for February and I hope a few of you will make it to the show. I had two pieces accepted
and there are many others to enjoy, I think 100 in total. It is wonderful to have art in February
and celebrating love is always welcomed.
The following images are now on my website and I also posted them in Facebook. Hope to see you

Hello fellow art lovers and painter, sculptors and other artists
This has been a wonderful year for me, full of opportunities and adventures in art. I met some new
artists in the studio where I paint at Rock Bay Square in Victoria and had an inspiring trip to Nova
Scotia where I have an exhibition with my friend in September of 2016.
I am having a feature at the Victoria Central Library in March and also one at Second Crack Coffee
Outlet on Bridge Street in Victoria.
Many new adventures this year and many paintings to enjoy creating. I am noticing that I
continue to want to explore new surfaces and textures in my work and allow the painting to
direct me. It is such a freeing process and allows all sorts of magical things to happen.
I am encouraging myself to share more of my process this year and hope to stay better
connected to the lovers of doing and the lovers of seeing the paintings.
Have a fantastic New Year and may Peace prevail and grow in 2016.
Hello - I love to paint from my intuition and from nature. I love texture and colour and the abstraction of shapes and images.
