I am lucky to have my second solo show at Mount Currie Coffee Company in Pemberton, BC this Winter. Just in time for the snowfall. This series is all acrylic and mixed media on wood panel, inspired by the good things in life. Each month of the year is represented, along intertwined with an uplifting image or idea. This is the first time I signed any work as Lisa Ankeny (my new married name) and it feels great! Pop in and have a peek with your latté! Happy Winter!
Stacie Smith came up to British Columbia for a visit. And, of course, we had to collaborate on some more work! Here are some images that are hanging for the month at the Fitzsimmons Pub in the Upper Village of Whistler and at Mount Currie Coffee Company in Pemberton BC.The Common Thread by Lisa Komuro12" x 12"-sold-The Silence of Bees by Stacie Smith10" x 10"$150"Wandering Around My Hometown" by Lisa Komuro10" x 10"-sold-"Learn to Love the Questions" by Lisa Komuro16" x 20"$220"Leave the Flowers" by Stacie Smith and Lisa Komuro12" x 12"-sold-"Let Go of Your Plans" by Stacie Smith and Lisa Komuro12" x 12"$180"Peaceful Surrender" by Lisa Komuro12" x 12"-sold-"Root and Uproot" by Lisa Komuro12" x 12"$180"Courage to Blossom" by Lisa Komuro10" x 10"-sold-"Don't Be Afraid to Live" by Lisa Komuro12" x 12"$180"Everybody's a Dreamer" by Lisa Komuro16" x 20"-sold-"For Freedom" by Stacie Smith(has been added to since the taking of this image)10" x 10"$150"Learn to Blossom" by Lisa Komuro16" x 20"$220A big THANK YOU to The Fitzsimmons Pub and Mount Currie Coffee Company for everything!
A couple inspirations have come up lately:1. Artist Betsy Barnum has work up at Mount Currie Coffee Company. Her work is breathtaking... Full of depth and life! Take a look at her site: REVERIE STUDIOHere is a sample:2. The Cats of MirikitaniGripping film about Jimmy Mirikitani, "Master Artist". The film is by a little saint: Linda Hattendorf... I highly recommend it. You are able to see how you need a little help sometimes and have to overcome your cultural pride to get it!It's interesting to see because it relates to the internment camps my father and his family were sent to during WWII. Check out the movie, winner of the Tribeca Film Festival!www.thecatsofmirikitani.comSamples of Jimmy's work:
