Thanks to everyone who dropped by our home in Kanata to check out some art and say hello! Special thanks to my collectors who make everything just a bit better… it was a great success, selling quite a number of paintings on a beautiful November weekend. It was great to meet some new neighbours and see my awesome cousins, like Jane and Maria, always so full of support since our move to Ottawa over 4 years ago.
As mentioned in my petercolbert.com site, very excited about the Open Studio coming up this weekend, Saturday and Sunday from 12-6pm… we have many new smaller works as well as many paper studies which will be available. Look forward to meeting neighbours, friends and collectors this weekend, 44 Pellan Crescent in Ottawa.
Below are 2 featured paper studies for those interested. See you here this weekend!
Unlike last spring, when unfortunately my Open Studio date overlapped with that of the Kanata Artists Tour, I’m trying to avoid conflicting with any date of local talent… to that end I’ve decided that the 21st-22nd of November will work the best, hopefully.
The house/studio will be open from 12pm-6pm each day, and all are welcome to drop by!
Our model was Yan, who did a fine job, I thought. I view painting as the creation of something unique, not dependent on perfect source material. The colour, composition and dynamism of the art is a challenge for the artist to figure out on his own.
