Andrea and Lori

I was recently in Ottawa at the Wallspace Gallery in Westboro for the opening of Lori Richards and Andrea Piller's show Home/Body.  The whole feeling of it made me feel "Ahhhhhhhhh".  Restful, glowing, calming... the way home should feel.

Paintings and sculpture, created by friends of thirty years in separate studios and separate counties, harmonious to the point of eeriness.  Colours, glazes and textures bouncing of off each other, entwined in one feeling.  Beautifully done, girls!

Back home now, I have been inspired to venture into my studio, dust off some cobwebs and tentatively go forward into my own art adventures.

If you are in the Ottawa area, I urge you to take the time to surround yourself by this magical collaboration.  The show is on until June 10, 2012. Go!

Andrea's little fox vessel "Vixen" captivated me.

This quiet piece, "small circle", is my pick from Lori's paintings
