Old Brush, New Work

photo(5)

A number 4 Africana sable brush from 1970’s USA. The ‘Africana’ company once provided high quality glazes, stains and supplies for the booming ’70’s ceramic industry. My parents had distribution rights for the products in the Grande Prairie (AB) area when they owned their ceramic studio. I used this brush to paint many small ceramic objects – then in the 1980’s it took me through art school. In amazing condition, it is still one of my favourite brushes and will come with me to the Banff Centre in February (2015) for a visual art residency. I received word today that I am accepted into the Leighton Artist Colony – Gerin-Lajoie Studio. While at the studio I will focus solely on my art – (yes, someone else will do the cooking and the cleaning for me!) As part of my planned  Education Leave from work, I have until the end of April to concentrate on my art practice. I feel a deep gratitude for this opportunity and plan to make the most of it. I shall keep you updated.
