This weekend I will be in Drumheller, Alberta, ‘Canada’s badlands’, on Canada day, where I will be displaying and selling my art, in the park, during their Arts Festival. It is desert country, and it will be hot hot hot. A unique way to spend Canada day, complete with fireworks.

Here is one of the pieces I will be taking with me, just off the easel!

Now it is glorious summer, time to branch out, explore. Time to fill the well. Summer is the time for expansion, as the light increases, so does my energy.

My friend and I are booked in a lovely turn of the century Bed & Breakfast house. My plan is to do some exploring, photography, and sketching if time permits. I will take a portable painting kit, to work on some WIP while I am at my booth. I will have miniatures for sale, as well as larger works. Now if I can get my display plan finalized, I will be all set to go!
