Adventures at Artwalk

My First day at Okanagans Lake country Artwalk was amazing. Three years back, I belonged to the Night Mode Gallery, and I got to show a few works at artwalk. This year was different because this was my first time displaying as an solo artist. The experience that I had today in comparison to last time was very different. Since I was solo people were able to see my body of work as a hole, it really made a difference in viewing. The feed back from the viewers and other artists was priceless. The four words that were used the most to describe my works were; different, refreshing, unique, and fun. I was so happy to share my story with others, and even more excited that they wanted to hear them. Any show like this would be more than worth the efforts, because the information that people share with you is amazing. I thank everyone who took the time to have a look at my art, your words are very appreciated.

I also decided to get involved and do a live painting. Yep a live painting! Since this years artwalk theme was “eye tunes” I had the pleasure of painting a still life of musical instruments in fifteen minutes! Crazy, and super fun! I have never in my life done anything thing like this, I must say it exciting.

Lakecountry Artwalk will be on 10-5 September 10-11, 2011 go have a look and let me know what you think. 300 Artist’s makes for great inspiration!
