Every year at this time, every gallery in town has a small works show to allow people to buy affordable, original art work. Not only do I have some small works at the RED Art Gallery, but I also have a couple of pieces at the Community Arts Council's Cafe Gallery.
HOLIDAY ART SHOW

CAFE Gallery - Cedar Hill Rec. Centre
Check it out if you happen to be at Cedar Hill over the holidays.
Last night, Sean and I had a lovely evening strolling along Oak Bay Avenue for the Annual Art on the Avenue Gallery Walk. The rain held off and it was a clear, crisp night.
We started at Red Art Gallery where a few of my paintings were hanging (in prime spots I might add). We sipped on peppermint hot chocolate and wandered in and out of the participating shops and galleries. Each gallery was packed, and we stood shoulder-to-shoulder with other art lovers enjoying the festivities.
The avenue was all decked out. Lights strung on every tree, lamp post, and store front. It really helped get me into the Christmas spirit.

Hey, if you didn't make it to the Gallery Walk, my paintings will be on display at the RED Art Gallery for the Small Treasures show until December 22.
I guess it's time to start my Christmas shopping...yup, I know, only 18 days left...YIKES!!
Are you in the Christmas spirit yet? What better way to get that holiday feeling than by taking an evening stroll along Oak Bay Avenue, all lit up for the season?
This Thursday night is Oak Bay's 9th Annual Art on the Avenue Gallery Walk and Ottavio Tasting Evening. Head down to the village for a self-guided tour of the many art galleries along the avenue.

I have been working on some new styles for the past few weeks. A bit more abstract than I usually do, but I am really enjoying the freedom it gives me. Here are a couple paintings that I recently completed. They are earthy and organic.
Today I had a private showing of my artwork at a client's home. They had requested I bring over a variety of paintings to see how they fit in their home. It was a huge success. I sold 6 paintings!
