Lots of Fun News!

Friday, July 13th, 2012

Loyal cats and kittens, I have returned here to let you know what I’m up to. I’ve spent a grand winter and spring squirreled away in my studio, and now I shall come outside and show you what I’ve made. I’ve been working on a whole new series, called Swimmers. To see the most finished ones, please visit my website. First up is the first ever Paint In the Square, a prelude to the Gallery Paint In on Moss Street. Then there’s the Sooke Fine Arts Show, in which I’m excited to be showing two big new pieces.

Well, thanks to the fabulous folks who stopped by my patch of grass, the Paint-In was a lot of fun. About 6 hours of talking about myself to 30,000 peeps. By 8:30 pm, after a lovely Sea Cider (I recommend the Kings & Spies) and a brief but enjoyable listen to Kumbia, I was done-for. It’s a pretty uplifting thought that 150 visual artists along a street can bring 10% of the city’s population to see them. My friend says it’s the best thing Victoria has going for it, and I have to proudly agree.

I showed some new works at the Paint In, all of which have yet to make it to my actual website. I’ll post these on here soon.

Moss Street Paint-In

Friday, July 17th, 2009


Another mad-dash for another summer show! For those non-Victorians, every July over 100 artists line both sides of Moss Street, from the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria to the ocean at Dallas Road.  I remember going to the Paint-In when I was 15. It was one of those cloudy summer days that puts the pause button on air-mattressing and sand castleing. I was so blown away by all the artists, I just wanted to draw. They had easels. Well now I’m part of it. Over 30,000 people come through in 4 hours. Pretty impressive for an art event in Victoria. It’s a bit nerve-wracking (or I make it so…) but I had a great time last year, and I hope this year will be the same.

So, I just Googled the Moss Street Paint In to look for images for this post, and the second picture to come up is me! Looking confused, yes, but that’s not too unusual. Anyway, it made me laugh.
