2011 Studio Tour

What an interesting three-day extravaganza the 2011 Prince Edward County Studio Tour was. There were lots of people walking in and out of my gallery here at Small Pond Arts, and I chatted amiably with interested folks, all while I worked on the underpainting of my next Prince Edward County barnscape. My large body of work (spanning just over two decades) seemed very well-liked by my visitors –including the six new paintings I did especially for the Tour using three local wines (Malbec, Cab Franc, and Baco Noir).

However.

This whole time –from the initial application process last winter, until I took down my Studio Tour sign at the end of the Tour today– something was nagging at the back of my mind. Something about the whole Studio Tour's visual identity seemed oddly, and inappropriately, familiar...something about...my home town? Something about...an old TV show?

Something...

holy crap 




Equally bizarre:
this is Post #200 yet it doesn't actually feature any of my own artwork.
