Spring is finally, definitively here—though it seems to have taken its sweet time this year. Local flooding fears are past, the ice on Lake Winnipeg is melting (and changing colours by the week), geese are airborne by the thousands, and along with hordes of junkos and robins, the enigmas are back! I’ve been busily finishing off a variety of sculptural pieces (some made collaboratively with boyfriend Rob), and we’ve also been hatching an eclectic assortment of creations in preparation for the 2009 Wave Artists Tour—clay figure studies, quirky tiles, clocks, one-of-a-kind jewelery, bird houses, and weathervanes.
Please do pencil the weekends of 13/14 June and 5/6 September into your calendar… and make your way up to the western beaches of Lake Winnipeg for the 8th WAVE Artists Studio Tour. Essentially on a self-guided tour (a detailed brochure and map guides you via the scenic route through hamlets and cottage country), you are invited into artist’s studios to speak with us and see us at work. Come with that special someone, come by carpool, or come by bus… but please do come. All participating artists will be flying the distinctive blue and white WAVE flag.
