Next we visited, a woodworker, John Cochrane who had a wide variety of products on display. We got his card as he might just be the man to build me a coffee table that actually fits in the room someday.
Next door to John, Lorna an Dennis Hutton displayed some lovely paintings. She does acrylics and watercolour, while he paints in acrylics and oil. There is lots to see, and well worth the stop.
At a large brick farm house we found the functional pottery of Sherry Rogers and fine arts and quilts by Margaret Kelk. The was another attraction there too. Barn swallows had built a nest above the light on the front porch. The mother was guarding the nest. People were directed to the side door.
John Shea is also on this tour, and is by far one of my favourite artists. We didn't go to his place as I've seen his work so many times and it was off the beaten track. We wanted to make sure we had time to get the rest of the stops in before closing time. Actually, I'm thinking we should have gone as I've never seen him in his home setting. Oh well, maybe next time.
We stopped in at Eleanor Pinsonneault's Cedar's Art Studio at Chaffey's Locks. The usual Chaffey's deer was grazing under the apple tree and a lady with a camera was in hot pursuit.
Loonie Sports Club. This is quite an amazing facility to be found so far out in the boonies. On this particular day painter Margaret Martin also had her work on display there.
It was a lovely day for a drive, and there was lots of exploring to do, so we really enjoyed our day. The tour continues on Canada Day, so if you want to do something different, perhaps this will fit the bill. Go have a great day.
Happy Canada Day everyone!
