I'm back in The Pas for a while, have to finish some jobs related to my actual income earning occupation of Carpenter then it is off to Manitou to begin a new phase of life. (again) I think there is a pretty good chance of finding gypsy blood in my roots if I took the time to investigate. I am excited about the move though because the community's of Watrous and Manitou are very welcoming and full of wonderful folks.
I attended the opening reception for the Artvisions 2008 show in Kelowna on the 25th of October and had a wonderful time. Has Kelowna ever changed since the last time I was there, which was some time ago. I remember it as a quaint beach type of town, now it is a blossoming city complete with high rises and high prices. Anyways, the show was a great success, I met some very interesting and talented artists and gallery owners and learned a little bit more about the business of art in the 21st century.
I haven't had much opportunity to work in my studio lately and that is going to change shortly, I have to get to work on my grant project in a serious way. My head is full of ideas and methods and it is about to all pour out in the form of gobs of paint!
