April updates

Well I'm doing alright at this posting once-a-month thing!  Here's the news for this month:

I recently competed in Art Battle 114, here in Charlottetown at the PEI Brewing Company(which has a gorgeous new event space!).  It was a pretty interesting - and out-of-my-comfort-zone - experience to paint something in only 20 minutes in front of a huge crowd with dubstep beats blasting and an announcer barking into the mic!  Let's say it's very different than how I normally work in my studio...
A great experience though, and while practicing for it, I painted so many new pieces, which felt wonderful & productive.

I also just had 2 paintings purchased by the PEI Art Bank, very exciting!  The group show, Blooms, at Gallery 78, that I have some botanical paintings in, opened on April 11th in Fredericton - you can see most of the work in the show by following the link above.

Besides all that, I've been getting ready for this year's Art in the Open and another Gallery 78 show in October.  Great to be busy & have all this new energy with Spring being here - I can't wait to put my garden in!
