Art Expo

Last night we attended the opening for the Oceanside Arts Council Festival of Art. This is a juried show each March which attracts over 300 artists to display their artwork. The show is in it's 34th year. As you walk around the room admiring all the diverse pieces of artwork, it is truly mind expanding, as each artist is so very different from the other, but all with a similar passion for art.

Speaking of mind expanding - we have decided to host the first annual Island Arts Expo. We are in the early planning stages, but the basic concept is an extravaganza of artists and artisans, workshops, guest speakers and entertainment, along with really good food (very important). The slated dates are Nov. 14th and 15th, 2009. Please check our website periodically as we will bring you more details.

Not withstanding that .... just so you know that I continue to work on my own art .... here is the beginning of another painting. The barn is from one photograph and the cows from another - both are Saskatchewan born. At this point the cows look somewhat stunned ... as Jeff pointed out "There's something wrong with those cows!" What I say is, "Ha, this is just the beginning - wait for the transformation. It will be truly miraculous."

I better get to work on it!

Till next time.

Love what you Do ... and Do what you Love.
