Summer 2012

OK – I admit it – I am really not a very good website blogger.  Nor do I tweet or update my Beaver Pond Facebook page with great frequency – so let me apologise for my lack of regular self promotion.  Must try harder.

Firstly -

My talented nephew Josh Gabbatiss is spending a month in my studio with me later in the summer – from August 27th til September 25th.  As I mentioned before, he is a great portrait artist and is looking to work on some commissions whilst here, so if you have been considering having a portrait of a person or pet done, this would be a great opportunity.  Please contact me for more details and prices.

And – what’s new?

Website update! The Map page has been caught up, and as well prices and pricelists updated. We've also done a bit of reorganising and put all the cards on their own page and added a page for the Giclee prints – please look over the site and see what's new.

My 2013 LARGE format Calendar is already in stock – yes REALLY!  Those of you who are used to my procrastination should be amazed by this.  8 ½” x 11” wall format, priced at $12.95 or 2 for $24.00, they make a great gift for any visitors you may have coming to town this summer, as a memory of our fantastic city. The small format calendar will be available in October.  Details on calendar page.

All designs of coaster sets are now back in stock – as well as a new set called “Mountains and Inlets” – featuring images of Whistler, Indian Arm and Vancouver. That's seven different coaster sets now available. Details on the Etc. page.

I have just printed seven new greeting card images, so my selection of cards is newly expanded.  Details on cards page.

My stock of Tote Bags is diminishing rapidly and I am not going to be ordering more – at least not in this format.  Get them whilst I have a few left – special price $10.00 each for the small size – available only in Spanish Banks or Vanier Park designs.
