I am setting aside my 7 month old baby (safely in the excersaucer) to announce something crazy, challenging, vulnerable…..
I am going to paint in a public competition! Art Battle 312 in Abbotsford, BC. Art battle is a public event where several local artist get 20 minutes to create a painting using materials supplied to us. The winners of the first two rounds face of in the final round.
Normally I paint slowly. And in stages. And on a flat table. Alone. With mixed media techniques. So needless to say I’m excited and terrified right now. This is probably the bravest thing I have done since I finished reading “The Artist’s Way” and started studying at Emily Carr University over ten years ago.
So, if you live in the area, come out and support me at the event. Tickets are available here:
Now time to clear my schedule and practice.
