Square Foot Show

Have you heard?  Opening night for the Square Foot Show begins THIS Wednesday!!

About the show

This is an online art show that goes live Wednesday Feb. 9th at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern.

There are 60 + artists, 290 paintings for sale, and each painting is priced at $300 plus tax and shipping.  This is a remarkable price as many of these artists sell this size for much more!  This is a great opportunity to collect an original piece of art!! 

If you would like time to plan what to buy, make sure to subscribe to https://squarefootshow.com -  you’ll get exclusive access to our 48 hour preview.   

Here are my 5 Okanagan inspired works.  

1.  A Moment Of Quiet Reflection, 12 x 12 inches, acrylic and copper leaf

2.  Autumn’s Glow, 12 x 12 inches, acrylic and copper leaf

3.  Copper Sky, 12 x 12 inches, acrylic and copper leaf

4.  Cotton Candy Sky, 12 x 12 inches, acrylic and silver leaf

5.  Welcoming A New Day, 12 x 12 inches, acrylic and gold leaf on panel

Grab a notepad and a glass of wine: it’s time to narrow down your favourites before the show goes live on Wednesday evening at 5pm Pacific/ 8pm Eastern!

*Note:  These shows are a bit of a frenzy but don’t let that discourage you.  It’s a ton of fun!

*Also, because they sell out fast, the show suggests to set up a ShopPay account prior to the event through Shopify to make the payment part faster.  

Enjoy the show!

Thank you,



Here is the next online event I will be participating in with my art.  My 12 inch round painting titled ‘Cotton Candy Seascape’ will be part of the online art auction.

Hi everyone,

The past 18 months have been hard. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and the recent wave of forest fires, have challenged our community, and each of us, in unprecedented ways.

They say laughter is the best medicine, and I don’t know about you, but I could certainly use some right now. Which is why Third Space Charity is excited to be planning an evening of good, old-fashioned fun designed to make you giggle, chuckle, chortle, hoot, guffaw, and well, laugh.

In fact, we’re calling the event Laugh! Presented by the Payton and Dillon Budd Memorial Fund, it’s a lighthearted, vintage-themed, variety show-style fundraiser in aid of a serious cause near and dear to our hearts – mental health!

It’s estimated 1.2 million children and youth in Canada are affected by mental illness, yet less than 1 in 5 will receive appropriate treatment.  By age 25, approximately 20 per cent of Canadians will develop a mental illness, and those aged 15 to 24 are more likely to experience mental illness and/or substance use disorders than any other age group. And the Covid-19 pandemic has only exacerbated this mental health crisis. Third Space Charity helps by offering a high-level, clinically supervised practicum training program for the next generation of mental health care professionals, and by providing free, supportive care counselling services to young people from 18 to 29 as they navigate the transition from youth to adulthood. The need is great, and we can’t hope to meet it without the support of our community. 

This is where you come in. We’d love you to come and laugh with us. Laugh! will include an online auction, hilarious stand-up comedy by Denis Grignon (as featured on CBC Radio’s The Debaters) and local comic Paige Matheson, music performances by Juno-award winning Darryl James (Close Kicks solo artist and bass player for the Strumbellas) and local vintage trio Kitsch ‘n Sync, magic by Alex Zander,

an epic joke contest, and more, all while raising much-needed funds to support the valuable work Third Space Charity does.

Thank you for your support!

The Bigger Picture

THE BIGGER PICTURE is an art installation project based on nature, that combines Steve Austin Photography images with 5 participating fine artists from different media backgrounds.  The purpose of the project is to raise funds and bring awareness to the fragility of our environment.  If you think of the world as a collective, we all have one thing in common, our planet.  Every one of us has an individual perspective or story of why we are drawn to nature. This project reflects unique perspectives by uniting a collective of artists, drawing from the same image, creating different works of art.   We have chosen to contribute back to environmental stewardship organizations, Nature Conservancy of Canada and the David Suzuki Foundation as our initial charities.
