Well my life has been pretty interesting for the last little while to say the least, and as a result, I haven't updated this blog in quite a while. I do have a bit of news though.

A couple of months ago, the Huntsman Marine Aquarium in St. Andrew's, NB emailed me and said they were putting a calendar together as a fundraiser for the aquarium. They asked different artists from around New Brunswick if they would contribute a drawing or painting of a native NB ocean animal for the calendar. They gave me a list of animals to choose from and I chose the blue shark. These animals are amazing and I've always found them so interesting. So here is my contribution to the calendar:

The original drawing is for sale. 
Please contact me for more information.


I'd like to say a big thank you to Best of the Web: Style Blog for featuring my blog this week! Each week they chose several blogs to feature and this week, mine was one of them. Check them out!

I'd like your advice...

I am currently working on some different designs for my greeting cards, using a printing company to do all the work for me. Since I now have to order the cards in bulk, I'm only going to focus on a few designs rather than making all of my drawings available as cards. Some of my drawings just don't sell as cards because they don't appeal to a large number of people. Not many people will buy a card of a bull terrier, for instance, unless they or someone they know owns one.

So here's where I need your help....I have an album on my facebook business page with all of the drawings and paintings I currently have available as cards. I would appreciate it if you would look through the album and vote (by "liking") for 5 cards that you think would appeal to the most people. Click here to go to the album
You'll have to be a fan of my page before you can click "like" on a drawing.

If you would prefer not to go through FB, you can visit http://www.pagesportraits.com/shop.html and click on each of the albums to view the cards available. You can send me a message letting me know your top 5 choices.

Thank you all and I appreciate your help!

Art Opening - Nov. 26 from 5-7pm

This is your official invitation to my art opening at the Fredericton Public Library, taking place on Nov. 26 from  5 - 7pm! Coffee and sweets will be served and I will be there to answer any questions you may have, or just to chat. I'd love to see you so please stop by if you can!!

As of this evening, my art will be displayed until Jan. 10, so if you don't get a chance to stop by for the opening, you'll have lots of time to pop in and see it. The display includes some of my original pieces and also some reproductions of commissions that I've done. All of the artwork is for sale in one form or another (originals, prints and cards). You can contact me for more information on purchasing.

Thanks in advance for coming!

Art showing at the library

Happy November everyone!! Can you believe that Christmas is next month?! I'm happy to say that I have already started Christmas shopping and am more than half done. But that's mostly because I'll be celebrating two Christmases this year, one in November and one in December. My mother goes to Florida over the winter, so that's why we'll be celebrating this month.

Although life has been keeping me busy lately and I haven't had as much time for my art as I'd like, I do have some things to show you...

Cape Cod Rocks - work in progress
8x10 Coloured Pencil on Paper

Still Life in Purple
27" x 39"
Acrylic on Canvas

Still Life in Purple was actually completed years ago, but I only just now got around to photographing it. The original painting is available for sale and also as note cards and 8x10 prints. Contact me for more info.

In other news, my artwork will be on public display for the first time! From Nov. 22 until sometime in Dec, my work will be displayed at the Fredericton public library. I will hang some of my prints and some original artwork as well. All originals will be for sale. On Nov. 26, there will be a meet and greet from 5-7pm at the library and I invite you all to come if you can. I will be there (of course!) and the library will be serving coffee and cookies. Please come by and say hi!

"Lion" Oil Painting

I know...original title! I'm not one for coming up with creative titles so I don't even try. It'll be tricky if I do a second lion drawing/painting. Perhaps it will be "Lion 2" or "Lion II"!

Anyway, here it is: It's not the greatest photograph of it because I've never photographed an oil painting before. I'm going to try to get a better picture soon though.

Oil on Canvas

This painting is currently up for bid on Ebay.

I have two contests going on at the moment:

The first one ends tomorrow at 6pm. The person who sends the most new fans to my Facebook page, wins a print. Click here to go to my fan page. When you refer your friends, ask them to post a note on my wall saying you sent them to my page.

The next contest started today. Buy a set of 5 gift cards or a print from my Etsy shop and your name will be entered into a draw for 30% off a custom pet portrait. If you win the prize, you'll have a year to place your order for a portrait. Contest ends Nov 2, 2010.

Good luck!

Here's how it works: If you're already a fan of my Facebook page, I ask that you invite all of your friends to "like" Heather Page Studios on Facebook (you can also ask them to follow my blog if you wish!). When they become fans, they should post a note on my wall to let me know who referred them.

If you're not already a fan, please join and then send out those referrals!! Good luck!
