For 30 years, I’ve wanted an art studio. A quiet place to call my own. A space that fosters creativity, peacefulness and focus. Over the last couple of years, we’ve worked towards that end. My husband has spent most of his days off converting an old garage into my little dream space. He’s roofed, resided, installed windows, insulated, installed new light fixtures and fashioned pine walls. There’s still a floor to finish, a porch to build and facia to attach, then it’s my turn to garden and organize the interior. I estimate a finish date of July or August 2018. If all goes well I hope to be part of Muskoka’s well known fall art tour and in a perfect world, I’d like to see local artists come for open studio time where we set up a still life on a rainy day, make tea and paint the day away.
No more excuses to not get my work done! I’ll have no computer, no home phone and no family distractions. I will have, space, music, peace and time to focus on the project at hand.
Verse of the day
Psalm 28:7 The Lord is my strength and my safe cover. My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. So, my heart is full of joy. I will thank Him with my song.

‘View over Cache Lake, Algonquin’ as seen from Track and Tower Trail is one of many exquisite vistas in Algonquin Park.
Living close to Algonquin Park, as an artist, is Godsent! Having access to 7653 square kilometre of rolling hills, covered by 34 species of trees and home to 53 species of mammals. The wildlife of Algonquin includes 2000 black bears (one for every 3-4 km), 35 wolf packs and 3500 moose. Within it’s boundaries are 1500 lakes and 1200 km of steams . And thankfully, all of this is accessible by 19 interruptive trails.
Algonquin is a landscape full of life that stretches as far as you can. What a privilege it is to enjoy it regularly!
