Painting a bowl for the Empty Bowls Festival is one of the things I look forward to every year. Last year's bowl was a canoe, the previous year was a chair and so, of course with the subject matter I've been focusing on, this time I had to paint birch. This year I also had a massive bowl, which was fun. It will be interesting to see how it looks fired as the colours I chose were galaxy (a navy blue), something blue (a soft grey-blue) and Kermit (green for the outside).
It's always wonderful to spend an afternoon with people I adore but don't get to see very often - and I work within a block or two of many of them...you'd think Airdrie was a huge city. I am so glad to live and work in a community full of people who want to support one another in great ways.
The Empty Bowls Festival in Airdrie will take place in Nose Creek Park on June 22 and it's a fabulous day filled with art, music and amazing food...along with a plethora of beautiful bowls to take home. I'm afraid my cupboard is getting full, but I know I will get another bowl (or two). You can read more about it on Discover Airdrie (AIR 106.1).
