Hmm, you haven’t been seeing daily posts again… Hey, it’s summer! I’d like to say we’re out painting, but, um… it’s summer. I finished a book. Not in time for book club, but I did it!
We are working on the art business, however. In writing, here’s what we’ve been up to lately:
With brute strength, careful planning and crossed fingers we delivered the mosaic of alcohol ink tiles to the school, where it is now safely installed in the library. The kids are delighted. Grade threes had a rash of “I have to go to the bathroom” before the teacher took them on a special visit to see their work.
Judy and Carolyn took down their show, Things Great and Small, in Fairview. It went over very well and we were happy to be the source of new visitors and some friendly competition regarding sales.
Judy, Carolyn and Joshua have entered the Dawson Creek Art Gallery’s Summer Members Show with several items each. We visited on the weekend and it is a colourful, eclectic show. Judy has some gift shop items as well.
Judy and Carolyn are in the Woodland Wonders show at the Centre for Creative Arts in Grande Prairie, opening today. Our paintings, photos and miniature book are combined with the work of about 45 other artists, all exploring the forest theme.
Today we are working on a proposal for Peace Watercolour Society’s Fall Show and Sale next year. The one in 2020 is already in the process of being booked. It’s great that art is so sought after here that one must put in proposals years in advance!
