LORIE’S ART SHOP

Do you really really love one of my paintings!!!  ….. but….. can’t afford the price tag????  Well, I can make a print of the painting for the low cost of $35 + shipping.  What do you think of that!!!  Contact me and “Let’s Make a Deal”!!!!!!!!!

 

2018 is in full swing and I am planning a Drink N Doodle at the Deja Vu Resto/Bar in Hawkesbury for the 24th of January!  1/2 price bottle of Winesday!!!  

Also, I am painting another commissioned “dog”.  I painted 3 commissioned paintings last year and I snuck in a painting from a photo of a young girl posted on Facebook….the mother loved it and bought it!!  Yay!  and I just generally paint for me!

I give private lessons in my home now and thoroughly enjoy doing that!  Who would have thunk-it that I could teach!!!!  but… I LOVE it!  I can teach you too!

 Wow, I didn’t realize I hadn’t updated this page in a very very long time!!!!

I have not been idle…. my Drink N Doodle is a hit!  and it keeps getting better!  I even teach kids in school now and am starting to give private lessons!  I currated my first show at the Arbor Gallery titled, “Studies after The Old Masters” and it was a huge success!  8 of us entered our paintings that we had done after Monet, Manet,…. and a host of others that only students of the arts would be familiar with….  I sold 3 of my 4 paintings!  Woohoo!  

I am now in the “Gifted” show at the Arbor gallery and this show is to offer artist’s and artisan’s work for sale for the holiday season.  I have 6 pieces entered.

All in all I have sold about 20 paintings in the past couple of years so I am a happy camper!  

 

I joined the Arbor Gallery in Vankleek Hill, Ontario and am presently showing some of my art at their “Gifted” show.  We are several artist with all different media.  and….I sold 2 of my pieces!!!  Yahoo!!!!  Next month they have a fundraiser for the gallery on the 12th of December called “Scramble”.  Each artist donated 1 or several pieces to be won during the evening.  I gave 2 – 5″ x 7″ original pieces (1 made it on their poster!!)

So make your way out to Vankleek Hill and check out all the wonderful art!

I will be back at the Chute a Blondeau Christmas Craft Fair which is this coming weekend!  Yes, November 6th, 7th and 8th at the Community Center.  I will have small paintings for sale and other little goodies so come on out to the best fair around!

I would like to announce a new venture I am planning!  Drum roll please…………….”Drink n Doodle”!!!!!!  Yes!  A fun evening of sipping wine and painting!  –  no experience required!  I supply all the materials as well as your first glass of wine and a snack.  My very first event is going to be at La Cite Golf Course in Hawkesbury on October the 7th, 2015.  It will go from 7 pm until around 9:30 pm.  Arrive a little early to claim your spot and get your glass!  Come on out and join us for an evening of fun and laughter and go home with your very own masterpiece!

Hi

I just wanted to let you all know that I am also available for reproductions….do you love an Old Master….don’t have thousands and millions of dollars…. I can reproduce it!  Yes…I am that good!  (lol)  Contact me and we will talk prices!

I spent the whole month of December at our local Cultural Center – Le Chenail – with 7 of my  paintings on display.  I was there along with my teacher,

Linda Scott Harris and 13 other students.  We painted there every Wednesday and sometimes on the weekend and it was wonderful to have people

just wander in off the street and watch us paint and give us feedback.  All in all it was a good experience.  I think I would like to get into a gallery

and maybe get more exposure.  Do you think I’m ready???

The dates for the Chute a Blondeau Christmas Craft Fair are:  November 7th, 4pm till 9pm.  November 8th and 9th…. 10 am until 5 pm.  I will be upstairs this year so I hope you’ll come out and check out our wares!  Great place to start your Christmas shopping!

Well, I will be returning to the Chute-a-Blondeau Christmas Fair again this year!  The date is in November but I will post the exact date when I’m sure.  lol.   Also…..drum roll please….. Our local Cultural Centre, Le Chenail, has asked my Art teacher and her students to exhibit for the whole month of December!  Woohoo!  December 1st until January 6th, 2015!  Yay us!  ok now,….. ready…..set…..paint!!!!

My daughter just sold 2 of my paintings for me!!!  The Daylily and the Iris!  I hope he enjoys them for years to come!

I have been working for the Canadian Cancer Society for the past 8weeks recruiting teams for the Relay For Life in Maxville.  This is such a wonderful event  and a real “Celebration of Life”.  My family has been participating in this Relay for the past 11 years and we are still blown away by the courage of the cancer survivors and the joy they have in “life”.   Last year I was on the Committee and got to judge the “theme” laps and contests and I am doing it again this year!  I hope you will support us and come out and cheer us on!

Sold “Peaceful Afternoon”  to a very good friend who really

believes in supporting local shops and talent.  Thank you!
