News from the Studio

Rumour has it that it is spring!  Our snow is finally beginning to melt and we are starting to see earth!  I am now thinking ahead to our busy summer season.  Soon the golf courses will be opening and that will bring tourists down to my little Studio Gallery here in Kimberley.  I am looking forward to seeing past visitors and meeting new people!  With the warmer weather I will be coming out of hibernation and gearing up for events this summer.  I will be taking part in the Saturday Art Markets in the Platzl as well as a few other events.  Details will follow in upcoming newsletters.  Summer weather will also have me out painting on location.  I have a few day trips planned so if you are planning on visiting Caprice Fine Art & Co Studio Gallery please contact me ahead of time to make sure I will be around.  Studio hours during the summer will be pretty regular, but there will be the odd day when I will be away painting.  I would not want to miss you!
 

Art Lessons

The Studio has been buzzing with students this month!  One student from Saskatchewan spent 5 afternoons here while she was in Kimberley on vacation.  Her husband skied and she painted.  It was great fun.  If you would like to book an art lesson during your trip to Kimberley please email me for more information and to schedule a convenient time.  I have scheduled this entire week with no lessons so that I can complete a commission painting but will return to lessons next week.  Art supplies are also available.
 

New Paintings

Leonardo DaVinci stated that "Paintings are never finished.  They are only abandoned."  This is such a true statement!  Some of you may have noticed that I always have several paintings on the go at once.  I start a canvas, abandon it for a while, then it eventually winds up back on the easel when inspiration hits.  The painting called 'Kootenay Pass' is one of those paintings.  It has been here in my studio for a while and I finally took my palette knife to it and it is now available for sale on the website.  Please click here for more details on the painting and to view all available paintings for sale.  Don't forget that there is free shipping in Canada and no tax on all paintings.  'Kootenay Pass' will be featured in the "2015 Kootenay Art" Calendar.  I will post details about the calendar as soon as it is available for sale.
 
"Kootenay Pass", oil on canvas, palette knife, 18"X24", available for sale from www.CapriceArtStudio.com

Unlike the 'Kootenay Pass' painting, my most recent painting 'Sweet Serenity' came quick and easy!

"Sweet Serenity", oil on canvas, 8"X10", available for sale from www.CapriceArtStudio.com .  Please click here for more details. 
Free shipping in Canada and no tax!
 

Happy Easter!

Wishing you all a happy Easter and hoping that the sun is shining wherever you are!  I would like to thank all of my past and present customers and students.  Without your support I would not be able to do what I love every day!  It is an honour to share my work with all of you and I thank you for sharing in my artistic journey.

Book of the Month

Thomson by Dennis Reid

Tom Thomson is one of Canada's great painters.  I was fortunate enough to see the Thomson exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery several years ago and it was a thrill to see some of my favorite pieces, particularly the painting on the front cover of this book.  It was incredible in real life!  He had such immense talent that it is a shame he died at the young age of 40.  Thomson's death is one of the biggest mysteries in Canadian history.  He was an avid outdoors man, very skilled at canoeing and a great swimmer, yet he drowned in a lake that he was very familiar with. I often wonder what great masterpieces he would have produced if he would have had a lengthy career?
 
Speaking of the Vancouver Art Gallery, if you get the chance, don't forget to check out the Lawren Harris exhibit on now.  I've heard that it is fantastic!
