Welcome to Amherst Island

Amherst Island is located in Lake Ontario west of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. The island is part of Loyalist Township in Lennox and Addington County. Amherst Island is located about 3 kilometres (2 mi) offshore from the rest of Loyalist Township and access to the island is by way of the Frontenac II ferry from Millhaven.

The main population centre on the island is the village of Stella, which is the where the ferry lands on the island side. Harrowsmith Country Life  declared the island’s local hamlet, Stella, as one of the “prettiest towns in Canada”.

I. Love. Notecards.
.
For as long as I can remember I’ve collected blank notecards. They’re so lovely to have around for when you need to tell someone you love them or send a message of thanks, sympathy, or celebration.
.
Buying notecards featuring work by artists I admire has been a way of collecting their art when I couldn’t afford the originals—or even prints. It’s also been a way of sharing art that I love with people I love.
.
Oh, how I hope these notecards do the same for some of you!
.
I’ll be posting them to my website over the weekend. There’s a limited quantity so you’ll want to snap them up quickly!
.
I can’t tell you how much it fills my little heart with joy to have artist notecards of my very own.

An oldie but a goodie! ‘Summer Twilight’ features the view from my backyard at dusk but this time looking away from the sun.
.
The blue and green palette is serene and calls to mind early summer evenings.
.
Painted on a 12x24 canvas, this piece is a great deal at $150.
.
Find it in my ‘Original Artwork’ collection at seaartai.com. Link in bio.

Play time in the studio today.
.
It is so much fun to test out a theory and have it go better than expected.
.
I had a BLAST playing with this big brush today and using it to get big globs of paint onto the canvas for mixing.
.
While I love doing commission work—especially when I get to think of my friends the whole time—the work is more serious and intentional.
.
It’s good for my soul to offset that kind of intense work with something fun and playful. The fact I have big plans for this piece makes it even more exciting.
.
What do you do to help bring balance to your creative practice?
