Stony Plain ArtWalk and St.Albert Square One Show

I must apologize, for I should have posted about these events before they happened instead of after. Life has been incredibly busy. Blogging often displays the vicious cycle of my busy productive life.
  On June 1st I participated in two shows on the same day. The first was the Stony Plain ArtWalk, then in the evening I was at the St.Albert Art Gallery's Square One with my 12"x12" piece titled 'Painter's Touch'.

   The Stony Plain ArtWalk went well. It was a good dry run for me in preparation for the large Whyte Ave Art Walk in Edmonton which I will be at July 12-14th in front of the Princess Theatre.

Above is the Work in Progress painting I was working on during the Stony Plain ArtWalk 2013.

My 'Painter's Touch' painting can be seen at the top between the heads of this group. It was a fantastic event. There was a live Jazz Trio that was amazing, they set a wonderful tone for the event. The art was incredibly intriguing (and cheap!). Next time I will definitely have to bring more cash. I recommend this event for all aspiring art collectors. The artists have 12"x12" works for sale at either $150.00 or $200.00. I am quite sure that for many of the artists there this is a significant drop in their prices but all for a good cause and great exposure. The event was packed full of interesting people and art. It was a great place to meet new people. The food was delicious and meticulously perfect. It made me feel like I fell into something important. If you get a chance to go next year I highly recommend it. You're guaranteed a great time! You I still have a chance to see and purchase some pieces until the end of this week (June 21st 2013). I have not yet heard if my piece has sold yet, so it may still be available.

These last two paintings were done for two very important people, Mary and Marianne two very important early ed. teachers. They encourage young children to put up their hands in order to ask questions, stick up for themselves and others, to say 'Yes I Can!', to hold hands with others, to give high fives, and pats on the back. For all they do, I thank you!
