Mystics Dance


I have been fortunate enough over the past few months to have been part of the organizing group for an upcoming show called “Fibre Content” and also lucky enough to have my own piece “Mystics Dance” juried in! I have had the opportunity to work with a wonderful group of artists that are passionate about fibre art.
I have been working on this piece for a while on this (among others) … Mystics Dance is watercolour on muslin with hand-stitch and free-motion, … I was so thrilled to have it accepted.

If you would like to read more about the show please go to the fibrations website and we are on facebook as well thanks to the hard work of one of our committee members.

So, click here to go to the website - - and click here to go to the facebook page for the Fibre Content Show.

This is a two day show at the end of October hanging at the beautiful Burlington Performing Arts Centre!

Have wonderful weekend,

Prince Edward Island

I know it has been a while since I posted - and I have been busy with my artwork and have much news to share in the coming weeks about fall shows and such!

But first I would just like to share some photographs that I have just taken in a wonderful place ~ Prince Edward Island ~

We have been visiting the island and these particular cottages since 1994 ( for the first time) but life and things get in the way sometimes (which I know is not good) - so it has been a few years since we have been back. I won't let so much time pass next time.

Taken in Darnley, PEI (on the North side) at Beach meadow Cottages ~ enjoy ~ and thank you so much Elizabeth and Richard for welcoming us back!

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful August
~ very best wishes ~ Barbara
