Five for Friday & I'll Let You In on a Secret

Ready to go and well ahead of schedule!  : )  No, I didn't make these all this week.  I did manage to finish two and frame all five of the ones here in this post!  Whew. 

Highway 16 in Summer, 2011  Inspired by a quick drive from Saskatoon to Jackfish Lake / Meota on a hot summer day.

detail - Flourish, 2011.  Just inspired.  : )  This has some of everything from all my favorite scenes:  blue in the distant horizon, that line of yellow, the birds, the flowers and grasses... just a great calm feeling full of contentment.

detail - Along Highway #7, 2011  Inspired by a photo from 2 summers ago.

detail - Sundown on Valley Road, 2011  Inspired by the ditches around Grasswood, south of Saskatoon

detail - Late in October, 2011  Inspired by the cut fields at the University of Saskatchewan

By the way, did you know that three of those were nearly tossed into the trash during the early stages?  Or maybe four of them?  I really got stuck with these during the early stages for creating, but then I tried something completely unplanned.  In the end, they really surprised me and I am very happy with each one.   I think they really capture the feelings I had when I was at each of these scenes.

... there's still a few more to come!  : )

Okay.  After much pestering on my Facebook page (you know who you are), I'll let you all in on yet another surprise.  A Prairie Dress has been accepted by the Saskatchewan Craft Council for an upcoming exhibition in the Affinity Gallery on Broadway in Saskatoon!  They just emailed me.  I emailed the following back to them:

WHOOPEE!! : )  Thank you so much!
