Fenwick Hardware and Antiques is featuring Caribbean Escape, a selection of oils based on my Caribbean adventures.  The exhibition closes March 31.

Some paintings depict the cool blues and turquoises of the warm Cuban oceans.  The original watercolour sketches worked up in 2012, from which the oil canvases were painted, are included in the exhibition portfolio.  Other paintings are based on shell formations either painted in the Caribbean or in my studio from shell formations.  The exhibition also includes some of my more exotic Caribbean treasures from El Salvador and Mexico.  They will give you a sense of nostalgia if you are familiar with the Caribbean, and if not, guarantee to provide a winter Escape.

Shop and exhibition hours are from Mon.—Fri. 8:30 am—5 pm, Sat. 9 am—3 pm. Address is 782 Canboro Road in downtown Fenwick.

Poster Ledger Size This selection of images from my summer exhibition Barns and Homes of Fenwick was held at the Maple Acre Library as part of the Fenwick revitalization project.  The exhibition was picked up by the Welland Tribune http://www.wellandtribune.ca/2015/07/10/exhibit-features-historic-fenwick-properties, The Voice of Pelham and the Pelham News http://www.pelhamnews.ca/2015/07/10/exhibit-features-historic-fenwick-properties

Thank you to home owners who participated by extending their interest and information about individual properties. All will be returned to Pelham’s Historical Society for their records.

Notecard reproductions of the featured barns and homes was generously organized by Jack MacGregor of J & J Florists and are being sold at the library as a fundraiser towards the new Maple Acre Library extension.  They sell for $4.00 individually or $30.00 for a set of 19.  A new facility was approved by Pelham’s Town Council in March, 2015 with the original historic building expected to be incorporated into the new build. This move came after The Friends of Maple Acre Library petitioned to have the Fenwick branch remain open.  http://www.bulletnewsniagara.ca/index.php?p=sections&id=3946 Residents are hoping this will mean extended hours for the Fenwick library branch, which in turn will bring more people to the downtown on a regular basis.  It only makes sense as part of the overall “revitalization” project.  Jack has them for sale at his Fonthill shop as well.  http://www.macgregorsinternational.com/brides-attendants-flowers.html

If anyone is interested in purchasing the original paintings, many still remain with me and are now being offered at 10% off the original price of $165.  Consider as a birthday, anniversary or Christmas gift. If you have seen these paintings and would like to ask me about a special commission: a larger version, perhaps from a different angle, or of a different property, please contact me through the website home page. I also work in oil on canvas.
