It’s a wild and woolly day here in Sechelt. All my garden plants are shedding their leaves and settling in for – dare I say it – winter. Eeek!

But before the last flower drops, there’s time for one last hurrah. The Sunshine Coast Art Crawl happens this weekend, and no matter what weather, it’s a giant celebration of the creative spirit that is so strong here on the coast! The whole coast is prepping for the rush of art afficionados – I’m thrilled to be a part of it all. Or as my exhibiting partner, Tzaddi Gordon of Tzaddimade would say … I’m scare-cited!

Today I’m happily snapping shots of the piles of paintings that I’ve finished this year. Tomorrow I’ll be enticing my butterflies to fly in formation as I figure out how & where to hang these paintings and prints. It’s all part of the process of letting the world see my creative innards …

To find out more about this coastwide event, go to Along with all the locals, there are lots of Vancouverites coming over, so come visit with me and my butterflies at venue #100 in Sechelt.

Dancing my cultured way through it all … Jan
