poetry and prose about place

getting ready for fall

with 4 comments

It may seem early, but I have my sights set on November. I plan to sell my book and some of my paintings at a local Christmas market. To have enough paintings ready for the event, I have to start now! Just a bit at a time since I also have to finish two larger canvases already begun!


This will be a chance to see if I can sell copies of my book ‘within easy reach’ in a market setting. To keep in the theme of gathering wild edibles, the paintings for sale will be of some of the wild fruit we have in New Brunswick:

  • blackberries, in the style of the painting on the cover of my book
  • wild strawberries
  • raspberries
  • low bush blueberries
  • apples



canvases, edges prepared and ready for paint!


Since I dread just sitting behind my table, waiting for someone to have a closer look, I will take a couple of canvases and paint as I wait!

  1. Sounds like an interesting project involving your talents and marketing. High bush cranberries?

    • Cranberries! Excellent idea, high bush and low. Reds are great to work with. Thanks for the suggestion!

  2. Painting as you wait is a great idea and will draw people in, just to see what you are doing. There’s nothing so intoxicating as watching other people work!

    • Hi Roger. This is the plan. Looking forward to it and if I do a little each day, it will be painless. Right?
