I did this painting awhile ago at a workshop in North Vancouver. I think it was March? I've been so busy lately that I seem to have lost track of time. Sigh. So much is going on! My daughter is applying to universities and is currently trying to make the big decision. My son is getting more involved in sports. Right now it is high jump. The poor dog is putting on a bit of weight from the lack of long walks. Good thing spring warmer weather is here. And I, of course, am still trying to keep it all organized.
Tomorrow I am teaching my first Photoshop for the Artist course at the Monterey Centre in Victoria. Then I have scheduled to do some individual critiques at the centre on Friday and finally, on Saturday-Sunday, I am teaching Painting the Abstract in Watercolor, also at Monterey. I am looking forward to that one. We will be painting to music and trying to recreate a sound through color.
Then on Tuesday, I am doing a very exciting thing. I am flying to Pittsburgh to demonstrate and promote Indigo Art Papers at the NAMTA (National Art Materials Trade Show) Conference. There will be representatives from all the big brands and art stores across North America. I am a little nervous and excited all at the same time. I will keep everyone updated on how it goes. Hopefully I will remember to take a few photos. I tend to feel overwhelmed with nervousness at times and forget.
If you happen to be at the conference, please stop by and say hello. It would be great to meet some of you.
