Our second day of Open Studios at KIRA

Today was a great day. No other way to describe than ‘Great’. I’ve been waking up before my alarm clock lately, up around 6:25am; alarm is set for 7am. I planned out my day, dressed and went down for breakfast. The other artists, Vim, Chantal and Ginger joined soon after. Eric and Nadine were either up hours earlier or slow to rise. I think I may be the only artist that is excited for the open studios here at KIRA, but I love the interactions with the public. The TD Art Gallery paint-in is my favourite time of the year. I love chatting with hundreds (thousands) of people in a day. I headed to the studio and began to clean and plan my morning.

The view from my studio. Not today though. Today the fog was so thick I couldn’t see fifty feet in front of me.

The open studios run from 10am to 1pm. Due to the thick fog and super fine mist like rain showers people didn’t arrive until closer to 10:30. For such wild weather a fair sized group came in to see our progress through the week and quite a few people from last weeks open studio session returned as well.

Below are some images from this morning before I worked on these during the day. Usually, I am not very forthcoming with pictures of my pieces in progress. It feels weird to show them before they are done. That said, take them all in!

On that note. I’m exhausted. I’ll have more to show tomorrow and some exciting news to share as well. Thanks again for following along.
