Whistler on the Lake

Sunday, June 20th, 2010

I’m so excited! In two weeks I am going to Whistler to take a 3 day workshop by watercolour artist David McEown. He is an amazing watercolour artist. I love how he keeps so much light in his work. Every shape is delicately drawn and perfect, yet inside the shapes he lets the watercolour melt and do its thing. It is simply wonderful. You must see his work:

An interesting side note is that I actually found out about this workshop on Twitter! I just happened to catch a tweet from the Whistler Arts Council about their workshops at the cabin on the lake and when I saw this workshop with David McEown I knew it was the one for me. I called them right away to sign up.

I haven’t taken a workshop in quite a few years. I’ve wanted to take one but hadn’t found the right one until now. I can’t wait!

I paint on Thursdays

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

I’m so busy these days with client meetings and creating websites that I haven’t had much time for anything else. In order to keep myself inspired and in the studio, I dedicated Thursdays to be my painting day. This is what I painted today:

Today is the deadline for Lake Country ArtWalk and I was literally mailing off my application at the last minute. Why is it that I tend to procrastinate until the last minute of a deadline? I had a couple of months to prepare for this entry and I guess I thought I had lots of time… until time ran out that is. Thank goodness for deadlines or I wonder if I would ever get anything done!
