September 22 - October 4, 2009
FCA Show - A Bird, A Stone, A Letter

Prenatal Portrait in Watercolor - Under My Thumb
One of my paintings, Under My Thumb, has been chosen for the A Bird, A Stone, A Feather show at the Federation of Canadian Artists gallery on Granville Island from September 22 until October 4, 2009. This painting is one of my personal favourites as it is a watercolor painting of my pregnant belly, around 8 months, with my first child.

Thanks so much Meera :) I checked out your blog as well and love your Hanging Fire painting! I just finished dinner with way too much cayenne pepper & my eyes are still watering!

I love this type of subject matter, Tracey and you painted it very well.:) I'm especially happy you included your belly button ring, too! I wondered if those had to be removed when a woman got along in her pregnancy. Congrats on the recognition! I'm not surprised in the least that this was chosen.

Thanks Billie :) My baby was 4 days overdue so by the end I was HUGE! I think if my baby had stayed in there any longer the ring would have just popped out!
