It has been some time since I last posted. And it has been a very busy month. First I got to go to a great retreat for OPAS on Lake Clear. We were invited to Chris and Bob's Opeongo Mountain Resort where a good group of us spent the weekend painting away. Met a great group of OPAS members in the Ottawa valley. They will be opening what promises to be one of the most active chapters of OPAS ever! (More about this in another post to follow soon).
And now I am neck deep in preparation for the OPAS show at the JEH MacDonald house which opens next Friday. This is our first show and it promises to be a great one. over 100 artworks will be on display in this historic and hallowed ground for Canadian artists. We also have a great opening coming up on Friday with Susan MacDonald, grand niece of JEH MacDonald opening the show for us. You don't want to miss this one. It is going to be great. I will try to tweet from there.
