Chipmunk

New painting I did as a gift for a friend who introduced me to “Cottage Country”.

Chipmunk, 8″x8″, acrylic on canvas, Rob Elliott

I haven’t painted in a while. I need to make more time for it.

Sore Boozers this Saturday

Sore Boozers, the band I play accordion with, will be bringing their motley collection of cover tunes to the Open Tuning music festival this Saturday.

The free festival features over 130 bands and musicians in 36 venues.

The 6th annual Open Tuning Music Festival will take place on June 8 in Seaton Village, a dynamic and diverse Toronto neighbourhood bordered by Bloor, Dupont, Bathurst, and Christie. Musicians from all genres, ages, and levels of experience are invited to self-register and perform at venues such as front porches, parks, alleyways, garages, and street corners throughout the neighbourhood.

We play at 3 p.m. at Mission House, Venue 19 (North-East corner of Manning & Follis).

Art Sale!

Swizzle Studio is making room for new projects and new ideas. We have paintings, drawings and textile creations we’d rather have someone enjoy than keep in storage.

During the month of May, we will be selling this work at lowered prices to our collectors and fans. We have been unpacking work from the last 20 years (!) and photographing it.

We will be posting works for sale on our Instagram account @swizzlestudio

We intend to have an Open House in our Toronto studio later this month. Details to follow.

If there are specific pieces you are interested in, or to book a private showing, contact us at studio [at] swizzle.ca
