Leighton Centre Clothesline Sale

This is the time for the Clothesline Sale at the Leighton Centre.  This year they have increased it to 3 days June 1 – 3.  For anyone who hasn’t visited the Leighton Centre it’s well worth the trip.  It’s a beautiful location in the foothills about 15 km south of Calgary. On the Saturday and Sunday they have outdoor tents and display the unframed work of about 70 artists.  It’s a good chance to see reasonably priced work and lots  of  it.  They also have a lot of activities and some food venders.

I will be there on the Saturday volunteering at my usual security position.

It’s always a good opportunity to look over all the studies and smaller paintings done in the last year and see which ones still speak.  The images here are ones that I thought were interesting and I have for each of them added some finishing touches mainly using opaque watercolour.
