Canada Day at the Open Studio

Mark and I decided to stroll on over to the arts centre on Canada Day, July 1st. Gary had said some new horses had just come out of the kiln and I wanted to see them. As it turned out, it was a perfect visit with a small working group made up of Gary, Otto, Sylvia and Judy. That must have been nice for them, as Sundays are usually a bit of a madhouse! We got to see their new projects, current and finished. It was great dropping by and visiting with them and made Canada Day special. Take a look at the slide show to see what we were all up to that day. Click through to the Flickr site if you’d like to see cutlines or a larger sized slide show. Not sure why they don’t show up on the blog version (#$%@&!!).
