So...my Alberta Flood Rose Project changed a bit before I could submit it as, even though the substrate I had purchased for it was advertised as 4 inches square, it actually measured 5. I brought the piece out to the garage and cut off those lovely bevelled edges with a mitre saw and began painting the edges again. I was afraid I'd have to begin all over again. In the end, it didn't turn out too bad.
The auction will be held on August 28 the Hotel Arts in Calgary, with almost 650 pieces included and Sheldon Smithers and Scott Cozen of The Canadian Pickers as auctioneers! The celebrity list is growing and the variety of media is amazing...calligraphy, oil, watercolour, soapstone, acrylic, metal, fibre, clay...WOW! And so many artists that I feel privileged to call friends. I cannot wait to see the works all framed.
Tickets are still available to support the Red Cross Flood relief online.
