New Art being Produced

So excited! New art is being produced at my lab as I write this post. 

What is amazing about the Boundary Region of BC? EVERYTHING! I may be a little biased but seriously, this area is a nature lover's dream! With four very distinct seasons we have the opportunity to truly soak up the best of each. The environment boasts a broad range of wildlife and we literally rub elbows/wings with them. For instance our ranch, Whistling Kettle, has a resident Pygmy Owl who loves to perch in the Aspen behind our apple tree. 

Yesterday, I put together a flagstone cluster of metal prints. This is a BIG art collection. The landscapes around the center print measure 10x31inches and the interior owl is 20x20inches. MetalPrints represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. The images take on a magical luminescence. Colors are vibrant, detail and resolution are unsurpassed. I love my lab! The prints will be on display (and of course for sale) at The Wooden Spoon - Bistro & Bake Shop, in Grand Forks, BC hopefully by next week. Stay tuned!

Background of images in the art piece.
Top : view looking Southwest of the pristine Granby valley. Taken from Volcanic Mountain. Early summer when the valley is fresh and green.
Right: Lynch Creek Bluffs looking Northwest. Late fall before snow socks these trails in.
Left: Cascade Falls looking South in early summer when flow is incredibly intence
Bottom: Whistling Kettle Ranch and our dog Zeus enjoying the crisp fall morning
Centre: Hoot is Whistling Kettle resident wild Pygmy owl. This 2 oz grapefruit size bird of prey packs a punch and has been known to take out birds much larger than itself like Grouse. This mysterious bird has eluded scientists trying to study its behavior and mating habits.
