Why Wish Upon A Star When You Can Make A Wishing Candle ~ CJ Shelton.

altonworkshopWhat better way to spend a wintery Saturday afternoon than exploring the rolling hills of Caledon, winter driving conditions were good, and visiting the quaint historic village of Alton.

Visited Alton Mills Arts Centre yesterday to attend CJ Shelton’s, “Winter Solstice Wishing Candle Workshop.” So glad I did…what FUN! With little time to spare before class, I had quite the adventure touring all the studios seeing the artists immersed in their work. If you’re wondering who is CJ Shelton?  “Carol (“C.J.”) Shelton is best known for her highly detailed architectural renderings and portraitiure of heritage sites and private residences which she has been actively doing for over 30 years throughout York Region and now Dufferin/Peel.”

In her studio, hanging out and listening to CJ tell stories was a pleasure. It certainly was a moment to be inspired and present.  Appreciating the natural beauty of the surroundings felt peaceful while taking in her creative artwork placed all around.

If you get a chance to visit the artists be sure to stop in and say “hi” to CJ. Find out more about her:
