So I’ve been on the road all summer and now it’s back to school and back to getting books ready for fall releases (more on that soon), not to mention back to posting! The final event of the Temple Bates East Coast Tour was in Conundrum Towers (my mansion in Greenwich, Nova Scotia). We were joined by Mike Holmes who came up from Halifax to have a Valley launch of his book True Story which was published by Invisible Publishing. Temple gave her artist talk and Mike did spontaneous True Story strips by members of the audience. Here we see Temple posing with her painting Carousel, which is now hanging in my house, and also happens to be on the cover of her book. And Mike Holmes demonstrates his artistic process with a True Story from Halifax filmmaker Walter Forsythe.
