It was a busy weekend, beginning with the Airdrie Volunteer Awards where the Soul of Airdrie Award was received by a deserving gentleman who began Airdrie Angel and who is currently building a house for a family in need. Then I had the great privilege of meeting Will Ferguson who won the Governor General's Award for his wonderful novel 419 - what a funny and interesting man! On Friday the library had another full house for the second author visit in the series...Lyndon Penner was also humorous and extremely informative. It was great to hear so much more about the plants I spent a year painting in my last 52 WEEKS project. And, on Sunday my husband and I celebrated our 28th Anniversary with a lovely dinner out with our daughters. Even after a great weekend that was a definite highlight. Next week I have a Teen Art Studio and then Jr and Teen/Adult Art workshops ahead of me at the library. It's been a busy few of weeks and I am looking forward to slowing down for the summer to focus on my studies and painting once again.
