And I'm off...

It's vacation time again and you guessed it we are off to England! It has been really hot weather wise over in Old Blighty, so we are looking forward to some sort of summer. Enjoy the next few weeks because I know I am! - JW

Artwalk 2013!

Day 1: Batten down the hatches! It was so terribly windy that one of my pieces of art blew straight off the stand and landed on a pair of scissors I was holding in my hand. Call it suicide art. There is no art like impaled art. People were out and about meeting and greeting with all the artists along the Ave. 

This was my neighbouring artist, Christie Sheridan. I just had to add her work to my post. She was absolutely lovely and I could not have had a better buddy artist. Her artwork is expressive and colourful. 

Day 2: Sun, sun and more sun! It was a fantastic day. The sun brought lots of people to the Ave. I was visited by many Artwalkers and friends. Even people that bought my art from previous years stopped by to see what I was up to. I sold a bit which was great! 

Day 3: Rain! With all the Artwalks I have done it has rained at least one of the days. I set up when there was a break from the rain however dark clouds loomed only to finally be cleared away. Sun and blue skies prevailed. Despite the unsettling weather that started off the day many people were out supporting this annual event. I sold a few more pieces which was fantastic. 

For me, this was the best Artwalk! And I can't wait until next year. For everyone who stopped by to chat, talk about art and purchase, Thank you! It was lovely seeing those that purchased my art in previous years. To my fiancĂ©, thank you for being such a dear and checking on me every now and again to make sure I was watered and had a bite to eat. To my friends and family thanks for all your support. Until next year... - JW

Three glorious days...

A few weeks ago I was one of 30 artists selected for the Duxbury Road Project. A lovely "pop-up" art gallery situated in the downtown area. However this weekend I will be participating in this... 

The Whyte Ave Artwalk! Over the past few months I have been busy painting and preparing because about two weeks after this I will be heading off to England. Check the Artwalk booklet to find my location. Hope to see you there! - JW
