A little while ago, Mandy contacted me requesting permission to draw inspiration from my photo of the Saanen goats. Soon after I said yes, Mandy emailed me this photo of her amazing painting.

As you may or may not recall, I took this photo during one of my summer trips in Switzerland. I had no idea at that time how popular this photo could be (do you remember Leah‘s work?)!
Mandy’s painting is going to be part of an art exhibit to be held at the Chalet Hotel Hornberger in SaanenmĂ¶ser (Gstaad area) over Christmas and New Year’s so if you’re in the area, please stop in and let me know what it’s like.
There were plenty of fascinating pieces of art at this year’s Art Toronto event. There was such a variety of art forms represented at the show and I definitely walked away feeling inspired to create some art work of my own.
Did you go? Any favourite new finds?
It’s been at least a year since I painted anything and this fact makes me a bit depressed as I used to paint quite often. But time has moved at lightning speed this past academic year and it’s only now that I’m finding more chunks of time to paint. Here’s a piece that I worked on last week.

Clean. White. Gorgeous. I’m loving these paintings by the extremely talented Alison Watt of Scotland.
