Welcome to YOUR Creative Life....2019-5

Hello dear art lover Welcome to YOUR Creative Life New Product πŸ’‘


We finally do have some heat here in Toronto and of course we are either revelling in it or complaining about it !I will be enjoying the beach here with my grandsons on some picnic days building sand castles and exploringthe ravines.πŸˆπŸ• I can remember lying on the beach at my Grandma's camp, listening to the waves of Lake Superior on a quiet day, soaking up the sun while covered in baby oil mixed with iodine. [It was a guaranteed suntan look..lol]


Do you recall what your favourite summer activities were? 🍦

Today is the last day for the Artists' Network Streetcar show. It has been a well attended exhibition and my paintinghas received lots of love , but is still looking for a new home.


The group show at gallery888 at 2359 Queen St E opens on July 24 til July 28. Once again, I will be rocking out withthe Streetfest in the evenings of July 26 and July 27 on the street in front of the gallery with some new work and with somebeautiful coasters. I have attached a photo of them. They are 4 for $35.00. They make a great hostess gift to go with that bottleof wine you take to your summer parties. πŸ’‘


πŸ–ŒHow did you do with the 'looking and seeing' I mentioned in my last newsletter? Did you have any 'aha' moments? Did you notice if your eye rested on any particular colour or shape?


Today, I suggest that you notice the shadows that are cast in these days of sunshine, either the ones your shape makesor the magical patterns created by trees and leaves. Perhaps you can even capture them with a pencil drawing or yourcamera. I would love to see what you come up with. Summer is the time to play!


Let me know if my new product is something you would like.πŸ’‘
Wishing you fun in the sun.πŸ”†

Welcome to YOUR Creative Life...2019-4

Hello dear art lover Welcome to YOUR Creative Life http://gailwilliamsartist.comπŸ–Œ

Happy Summer SolsticeπŸ”† But are we going to get some sun?! I may just have to go north to Thunder Bay for that this year. Actually I am going to Thunder Bay in August. Have to get my dose of inspiration and family. Maybe a bit of hiking and lots of laughs. And of course, sauna..I know..who gets excited about getting clean? But I do get to jump in Lake Superior at the end of it. What can I say? We Finns are a twisted lot. It's all that darkness.πŸ˜‚

If you haven't had a chance to see my painting in the Artists' Network Streetcar Exhibition, please drop by 638 Queen St E. The gallery is located behind the Dark Horse Cafe. There was a wonderful crowd for the opening and I met several of the artists. One of the conversations I enjoyed was about how artists see things some people miss.

Looking and Seeing is my Creativity TipπŸ–Œ for the week. One of the things I spend time on is reflecting on what I notice. I would encourage you to take some time to notice what draws your attention. Instead of just looking out the window, for example, pay attention to what you focus on. Or page through a magazine and stop when your eye is caught on something. If you are looking for inspiration, it is usually right at your fingertips.

In addition to having my artπŸ–Œ at the Streetcar show and my chiropractor's office..OMA Chiropractic on Queen St E, I have some work at The 6 Oceans Gallery, 962 Queen St W, Toronto. Susan is a fellow escapee from Thunder Bay and has a lovely shop full of beautiful gift wear, accessories and of course gorgeous art. I attached a file of my work that is there. It looks lovely in the store but would enhance your space even more.😈

Enjoy the longest day of the year.
