I just got back from a demo at the Art Focus group in Port Coquitlam by Richard McDiarmid which was awesome :) I have seen him demo once before and I am just amazed how he just pulls a painting together so quickly and with such depth and glow, seemingly just by brushing paint on the canvas. I think he has magic stuff mixed in with the paint ;)
The catalogue for the May Day show on May 1 & 2 was printed up and I got to leaf through a copy, it looks so nice. I decided to place an ad in the catalogue this year of the photo above. I thought I would start teaching this year now that things are getting more balanced, life, exhibits, painting etc. I would like to make a bit of time to teach and get out of the studio a bit more with other artists & paint. Now to pack up the paintings for the show!
The geese in "Ruffled Feathers" will be at the show and the graphite pencil portrait of the couple and the watercolor portrait of the baby are photos of my past commissions.
