December 31 End of a decade

Wow, hard to believe we are at the threshold of 2020. It seems only yesterday we were worried about Y2K. Will this be another version of the Roaring Twenties of the 1900's. I wonder....
Ive been super relaxed about posting here with any regularity but one of my goals is to change that for next year because I do enjoy when I finally sit down to write, it is just getting my bum in the chair to do it! Speaking of which.... I have a new standing desk to set up and try. Sitting is the new smoking , I have heard.
Isn't this lovely? A slice of Nova Scotia summer. Another thing I plan to do with more regularity. Get out and see the beautiful place I am lucky enough to live in. I tend to get bogged down with work, and being self employed, it never ends, I have to make the time to stop and get out there!

But before that happens, I have a lot of painting to attend to. I am excited for February this year! I am organizing an art exhibit called WILD, as a fundraiser for Nova Scotia Nature Trust's "Save the Wild Blue" campaign. They are trying to purchase a LARGE lot of land (575 acres) in the heart of the Blue Mountain Birch Cove Lakes Wilderness Area. This is a gorgeous wild space they are trying to protect from development. I used to swim in Susie and Quarry Lake as a teenager and hike there now. I vowed to do something to help protect it. There are ten artists participating and everyone is donating a portion of each sale to the NSNT for this campaign. All the art will be nature and landscape themed, no humanity visible:) There will also be an information table set up. Opening reception is Saturday afternoon, Feb 8 from 12-4pm. The show will run until Feb 28 at the Chase Gallery in the Nova Scotia Archives Building. 6016 University Ave. I hope you can make it! I will post again closer to the date.

Have a Happy New Year and chat to you in 2020!!
