Heading West

Heading West, 24x12 oil

I love the drive heading west along highway 8.  Rural Ontario; passing one small town after another, with big expanses of farmland in between, and century old houses.  This is the route I take every time I visit my parents, who live just outside of Goderich.  The highlight of the drive is stopping in downtown Stratford to grab a coffee and visiting a few of the shops and galleries.

This coming weekend I am hosting an Open Studio Show & Sale.  I have invited a few guest artists, and will have paintings all around the house and studio.  There will also be Christmas cards for sale and fresh home baked cookies to sample.
