Going to the mailbox is always a surprise outside of the usual bills. Today a pkg arrived from Rochon Sands Alberta and artist Garry Gardiner in the pkg are mini prints of Garrys watercolors. They are awesome and very well put together... I am a tad bias here as Garry is an old friend of mine,he was very exicted about what i am doing here in BC and wanted to support Outsider Art In A Box.
These are defintely collector prints and will frame beautifully....Ten Years ago i went on an art vacation to Garrys Cottage which is his year round home and studio...I was learning some new techinques to apply to my own creative expressions,Garry is my Art Mentor i had the pleasure of a few years when the both of us resided in Edmonton Alberta for loads of quality art time,Today i go on working art holidays to continue to learn from Garry.
On that 10 yr ago Vacation Garry wanted to paint me and so here i am lounging on the sunporch at Garrys home cottage on the lake..The name of this piece is called "Rainbow Reverie",it was a surprise today when i opened the pkg and these particular prints were sent. I have a larger version of this piece and again my bias is showing i love all the diversity in this watercolor.
Ode to Working Artists!!!
Thanx Garry for your support and your wonderful watercolors...
