Whyte Avenue Art Walk 2011 and catching up to speed

I have been fortunate to be very busy lately. Busy enough to keep me away from blogging. Which is always hard to do in the summer. Sorry but I would rather be outside.
It has been raining for a week now allowing the spawning of trillions of blood thirsty mosquitoes, so now is the perfect time to jot some things down and get you up to speed on my artist life.
On June 25th and 26th I participated in the Alberta Ballet House & Garden Tour in Edmonton. More than several of my paintings were displayed in the 'Classic Modern' home owned and designed by Thirdstone inc [^].
Prior to that I had some of my still life work go up on display at the Tasty Tom's restaurant on Whyte Ave, Edmonton.
I have been traveling a bit as well. In May I went closer to the equator to warm up with my significant other before summer. In June I traveled to Canmore, Alberta for their ArtSpeak festival. It was a wonderful experience. I gathered inspiration and reference material from both amazing places. I am looking forward to the travels to come in the future.

This week I am gearing up for the annual Whyte Avenue Art Walk. Once again you will be able to find me in front of Laurel's Flowers 10404 - 82 Avenue, Edmonton, AB. I will be there painting, displaying my work, and chatting July 15th-17th from 10am to 5pm.
