All Over The Place For Thanksgiving Weekend

 It was the Perth Autumn Studio Tour over Thanksgiving weekend and we had rented the cottage for two nights in the area so we could take it in again. It had been five years since our lest visit. Too long.
 We had really pleasant weather on Saturday. Above is a detail shot of one of  "Kirk's Canoes"

 We took a short walk to check out the walk-in camera obscura while visiting Frank van Oort's studio.

             A sample of traditional fence builder, Scott Dobson's work at another studio.

                                                          Still life on a window sill.

 Saturday morning found the lake smooth as glass.  Not a whole lot of colour at this time in the area. There we little punches of it here and there.

 On our way out we picked up ribs at Northern Soul to fill out the menu for the weekend. Marty couldn't pass up their "Thanksgiving Poutine"  Pretty darned good!  This was the closest we got to a turkey.

 Joshua and Emma came along for the weekend too. They got in a little kayaking before we began the artist tour.

                                                               Beach still life.

                                                                     As found.

                                            We found a couple of baby turtles on the beach.

                                                      "Red sky at night, sailor's delight."

                                    Well, we woke to some serious wind the next morning.

                Marty and I checked out the "Fantasy in the Forest" art show on the way home. I loved this display by Douglas MacDonald.  His web site is here, Rue Royale Stone.

 We are used to seeing him at the Kiwi Garden's Art in the Garden show on Father's Day weekend so it was a nice surprise to find him here as well. We always buy something from him.

                                                             His work is wonderful!!!
