Artist's Residency at Geraldine's Gallery, Kemptville, On

Last week I drove down the 416 from my home in Aylmer, QC with all the equipment for watercolour and encaustics, fully prepared for a week of painting!

Nestled in the growing hub of Kemptville is a little oasis called Geraldine's Gallery in the midst of all the housing and commercial development. It is an art gallery with a remarkable collection of regional and Canadian artists, many of national acclaim. Geraldine Taylor also is a successful curator, gallery owner, real estate agent and community activist well known in eastern Ontario.

She also devotes part of her gallery to an Artist's Residency so that artists may take an extended time to work and be inspired by the art you see everywhere as you spend a week or a month.

I painted plein-air on the large heritage estate finding tiny delightful vignettes and enjoying the view for an hour or so.

October 14, 21, and 28 I am planning plain-air Saturdays during the breathtaking fall season this year. If you would like to join me or get further details, contact me at
