The ponds are refreshed with the rain waters that arrived in force last week. Traveling birds, fowl celebrate and lands are happily coming to life once again
So here we are in November and the days are getting shorter, the time clocks have changed to the FALL BACK range and we in Eastern Standard Time are struggling to try to remember that! The leaves are down and the trees are starkly grey and lonesome looking... with many gatherings of the birds and squirrels and small animals seeking shelter as the days are cooling.
The Kingston Fibre Artists Show at the TETT was a huge success with many of our art pieces finding new homes, and I have a wonderful new piece from Janet Elliott hanging in my home...
Her's is a story of angst and fires raging through Western Canada, but a reminder that we are not immune to tragedy and are the keepers of the land. This artwork will be passed along to my son and his son and hopefully, the message will travel forward - the EARTH is our responsibility! The trees, the fields, the birds, and the small and large animals.. all on our collective responsibility list! (Janet's piece is on the left in this show photo below).
Other works on this wall of beautiful art were created by Robin Law's Field, Seymone Armstrong Lori Everett and Wilma Kenny. Well done ladies - so beautiful.
The Kingston Weavers and Spinners had a wonderfully attended show from Thursday Nov. 4th through Sunday the 7th and we extend so many thanks to all of the many visitors - some who had never been inside the TETT Centre for Creativity and Learning and happened by, as well as the devoted fans that can't wait to shop the KHWS Sale each fall. Congratulations ladies.
I had the pleasure of visiting with friends in the Quinte Fibre Artists group a week or so ago, and while on my way to Belleville, stopped to pick up my treasured artwork painted by pal, JOAN REIVE, and bring it home to add to my collection. This work is a treasure as Joan is a renowned Ontario and Canadian Artist - I am blessed.
Me - well I have been housebound due to a back injury for almost a week now, but mending nicely.
Hoping to have some additional walking photos to share soon... see below... Cataraqui Trail. Until then... lots of HGTV, some reading including some new planning for weaving when I can get back to my looms. Looking forward to the last of fall days watching the weather change and my Lake Ontario view outside my Studio window tell her story!
