Summer is here and with it come thoughts of sun, sand, water, … and art!
The northern Saskatchewan forest is a wonderful change from city life. I love sitting on the beach, reading, walking and enjoying the sounds of nature. My art making changes to simple sketches and experimentation just for fun and relaxation!
Nature provides lots of inspiration – but so does a visit to an art gallery.
As you head north to Christopher, Emma or Anglin Lake, Elk Ridge, Prince Albert National Park or La Ronge you will drive through Northside. There, a historic dance hall is now Northside Antiques & Collectibles…and Black Spruce Gallery.
The gallery has been open since 2010 and every year it gets more impressive. We stopped on the weekend and WOW – it looks fantastic! They have an amazing range of work with something for everyone. In addition to paintings you will find pottery, sculpture, jewelry and more.
I am honoured to be represented by Black Spruce Gallery (since 2012). I delivered some new pieces and these three “Spring Break” birds were on display immediately! When you stop at the gallery you will also see “By the Sandbar” (top) – one of my favourite places to stop as we walk.
Enjoy nature … and art!
