It's been a busy fall and winter and a little rest was needed, so lucky me! I got to go hang out at a friend's cottage for a weekend. Considering the grey days we've been having in Ottawa, it was so beautiful outside and getting some sunshine is exactly what I needed.
I also got a chance to go see a band I probably should have seen in my teens, but they're back so why not ? Rusty played at Zaphod's and considering the poor guy was loosing his voice and had a drummer in the hospital, the show was pretty fun.
And last but not least, a visit to the Musée des Beaux Arts in Montreal filled me with inspiration. I finally got to see Peter Doig's work in person. I personally can't say I'm huge fan of his figures, but I love his landscapes. I can only wish I could do that with paint and colour.
So back to work it is, getting ready for a solo exhibition at l'Espace Odyssée in September, and a trip up North to Gallery 815. In the spring I'll be making a trip up Highway 11 towards Northern Ontario for a project funded by the Ontario Arts Council. Otherwise, it is definitely gallery proposal season and this is probably what I'll be doing with my free time for the next couple of weeks!
