2017 August 5 and 6 - Art By the Lighthouse (Niagara-on-the-Lake), BOOTH #47
A VERY BIG THANK YOU to All Who Attended the 12th Annual Art By the Lighthouse!
While Mother Nature had some fun with us during the weekend of August 5th and 6th with periods of rain in Niagara-on-the-Lake (a torrential downpour at one point), we did not allow it to dampen our spirits. I was amazed by how many people still came out with umbrellas. Thank you for your support!  To sum up my experience of the weekend, I was overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity and comments by the people of Niagara-on-the-Lake and other visitors (and long distance travelers!) to my tent of colourful bliss (Booth #47). And while it was my first time showing in this event, I am not new to the art scene painting, professionally, for nearly 20 years. The weekend of Art By The Lighthouse was very successful bringing me new commission work and other great opportunities, and new friendships too! I love talking about my art almost as much as I love painting. As all who saw my work up close and personal, I love colour and I am fearless when it comes to using it. Vibrant and alive, cheerful and invigorating, just as I love life. I would also like to extend a big Thank You to my Love for his support (my assistant extraordinaire); always making moments count. View pieces of my work that you saw at his event here and others throughout my website. See something you like? Originals-only (no prints) n the acrylic medium since 1998. Contact to inquire/purchase here. Thank you for a great weekend! - Barbara Simpson

Thank you everyone for an amazing weekend! - Barbara Simpson
