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.

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!
