What a busy week it's been, and it's only Wednesday morning. First I want to thank the lovely lady who purchased this piece and so kindly sent me this photo of it after my demonstration last week. I chose to call this painting 'Gathering' because it not only reflected where I was with a gathering of creative people, but also reflects this space that I see as a place to gather my thoughts. It's definintely a place I'll spend some time today before I begin more busyness this evening.
I've been hanging a new exhibit at the library and speaking to many area artists as a friend and I have decided to take the time to create a kind of directory for the local arts community - we just started a few days ago and already have almost 50 artists included. We wanted it to be an online hub of sorts of the arts as I am very proud of this community of people that I call my friends. You can take a peek at it here - www.airdrieartists.weebly.com.
I've also just completed a commission and two calls for exhibits, and have another commission and another two calls to complete. And, of course, the odd meeting sprinkled in. (Breathe.) And here I thought I'd take it easy this fall. I don't know what I was thinking.
