We have been rather negligent with our blog so far. From then on hopefully we can remember to take the time to update you on all the wonderful things we have been up to.
Settling here was easy and fun. The apartment is cozy and charming, especially with all of Rebecca's quirky and sweet decorative fancies. We have a huge kitchen in which we love to cook and bake. Sharing meals helped us getting to know each other and still brings us together to discuss and share some laughs. Quickly, we made the studios our own havens of creation, and it is now part of our everyday and night hang-out spot. When the weather was still warm and sunny, we had our bay doors open and met lots of kind souls, often accompanied with their dogs. We had to get dog treats!
In September, we had our first Open-Studio event, where we invited the town to come enjoy some wine and home-made snacks meet us and see our work. It was very successful, and lots of fun. We have many supporters who encourage us and our practice, and even have us over for delicious dinners form time to time. We certainly haven't been lonely or bored so far. There is always something to plan, see or do. Last Saturday, we all went to see the Youth Orchestra at the St-John's Anglican Church, thanks to Senator Wilfred Moore who offered us tickets. This week and the next, we are having different classes from the Lunenburg Academy to visit our studios. We are also planning our workshops with them, as well as a series we will be offering to Centre Consolidated High School. George is preparing his upcoming community workshop here at the studio. Rebecca attends a quilting group and is active amongst the Second Story Woman's Centre. Amelie begins a weekly private workshop in response to a keen woman's interest in painting. All of us are also spending as much time as possible in our studios working on a body of work that will be displayed in the Port Campus in February.
See you later and thanks for checking our blog! More pictures coming up soon!
