I was featured the other day here on a great artist website called Pink-Noise Art. It a site created by Katie Robinson, that promotes and brings together many talented and different artists.

It is descibed as...

"Pink Noise is essentially an Artist Directory, but with the added twist of a close collaboration with an Art Zine.

The Open Art Zine available for contributions from all inspired and interesting people . . . yes that means you!

It is a place to show your work and let everyone know where to find you
online.

The philosophy behind Pink Noise is that in sharing around Pink Noise to others, you are a) promoting yourself and b) promoting everyone else that is involved as well. . . . And if everyone does it, we all help each other out! It’s a wonderous and simple plan and I love it!

est. May 2010!"

Yesterday I finished my latest painting. It is of a little victorian style girl that was inspired by my visit to Niagara on the Lake. She has big blue eyes and cute little bows on her outfit.

I named her 'Claudia' and she is done in acrylic paint on canvas and measures 8"x10." I will put her up for sale on ebay to go along with my othr art for sale.

Niagara-on-the-Lake Canada vacation

prince of wals hotel

So this past weekend my husband took me on a mini vacation to Niagara-on-the-Lake and it was absolutely amazing.

Now I have been there plenty of times with my family. My parents have been taking me since I was a little girl. I use to play with all the other children in the large park fountain when it was a hot day. My family will try to go every summer to Niagara-on-the-Lake to enjoy the many local shops, the restaurants, the lake, and the historical little town surrounded by wine country.

My husband has never been there, so it was a new adventure for him. I took him to my favorite shop 'Just Christmas' which is a large Christmas themed store that is open all year round. we bought a Niagara-on-the-Lake bulb ornament and a police officer nutcracker.

prince of wales hotel room

We stayed at the luxurious 'Prince of Wales Hotel' which words can't even describe. (That is the photo at the top of this post). We stayed in a premium suit with a Victorian canopy bed and hot tub. The pool was a salt water tub so my skin didn't dry out or smell like chlorine. We felt like royalty. They even gave us oranges in the room to snack on.

My husband also bought tickets to the Shaw Festival to see the play 'The Women' which was also very fun. He knows how to spoil me =) I had so much fun and so did my husband. He is already planning our next trip.
