I am very happy to announce that for the month of May I will be showing my work at a very special venue that is close to my heart.  May 6 is the one year anniversary of two of my son’s micro brewery!  It is also the month for mom’s and the birthday month of my third son….great reasons for celebration!   I will be showing a variety of paintings, some large and some of my smaller daily painting works.  The address of the show venue is 1830 Powell St here in Vancouver BC if you would like to stop by and have a look.  The brewery name is Doan’s Craft Brewing Company!

As fortune would have it, I will be extending my show at Doan’s Craft Brewing Company until June 12.  Thank you to all who have come by to see my work, especially my small, daily paintings.  It is so much fun to be able to show them ‘unbound’ as it were.
