Today, was another whirlwind day of touring studios. This is the third weekend in a row that I have visited artists' studios in various neighbourhoods. I have to say, I am a bit exhausted by the whole thing. I really enjoy it, but it takes a long time to go through 20 studios. I started out on the Gordon Head Studio Tour. I went to this one last year for the first time. As I had seen most of these artists already, I chose to only visit 6 this year. The artist from this tour who I like most is Sandra Fowler. She paints acrylic landscapes, but has recently started creating glass art as a LEED artist.
After that, I headed to Broadmead & Cordova Bay for its tour of artists' studios. There were 14 in total and I went to every single one. Jean Ives' studio was the one I enjoyed the most. She paints a variety of subjects in oil. I spent some time talking to her about her art and career.
There are at least 5 more tours going on over the next few weeks. I think I may only go to a couple more.
MY ART: Yay!! I painted last night. I was nice to get back at it. I am working on a big canvas right now. Last night I was going great guns when I ran out of paints. I went to the art store today so that I could continue painting tonight. I have two smaller paintings on the go as well.
TAXES: I filed my taxes just in time. In fact, I had 17 minutes to spare.
BIRDIES: We saw a mommy and daddy bird couple building a new nest in the cedar tree yesterday. Maybe there will be new eggs soon.
Now I need a nap. Have a great weekend.
