It is one week after DoorsOpen and I am still reorganizing. The laundry room wall had a "food wall" this year and some of the small paintings have moved on to new homes. I will be re-hanging the gardening tools on that wall- actual loppers and clippers, not paintings, but I thought it might be a good time to post a picture of the sixteen varieties of apples when they were displayed as a group in a show in White Rock. I call them "Iconic Edibles" because they have gold backgrounds like icons and are the focus of attention. DoorsOpen was really busy this year as our group of three nearby artists was on the bus tour. It also seemed like some cars were following the bus as a lot of people arrived at the same time. This year's Arts Awards ceremony was this past week at City Hall and I was a finalist in the Volunteerism category. Lots of art activity in Richmond - but we still need display space for local artists.
