Artistic World Record Attempt on the News!

I was on CHBC News tonight!

It was very exciting to be called by the Kelowna Art Gallery today to be told that Barry McDivitt from CHBC News wanted to interview me. This is so funny since I just wrote my first ever press release last night but I hadn’t even sent it out yet. It feels like it’s right out of the movie The Secret.

After playing phone tag I finally got to talk to Barry and he asked me if they could do an interview this afternoon. I said I would meet him in an hour at my art studio. I was on my way home from getting groceries so when I got home I had 15 minutes to put all the groceries away, change my clothes, do my hair, put on some makeup, grab my 4×6 paintings and head out the door to my art studio. I made it at 3pm on the dot.

Barry and Jim from CHBC were in and out in less than 15 minutes. They did everything in one take. Then they headed back to their studio to edit the clip in time for the 5:00 news. True professionals. It was very exciting. I hope that little clip will help inspire others to participate in this community art project!

The video seems to have been taken down, but here’s a link to the article: Landscapes May Cover Record.

I’m not crazy about how they preface the story by saying that it doesn’t matter how ‘bad’ of an artist you are, you can now have your art displayed at the Kelowna Art Gallery. But if that’s what it took to encourage so many people to participate then I guess it’s okay. I just think that every one of those paintings which were submitted were very special in their own way.

    PS The lady in the video says 4×7 but if you are creating an entry keep in mind that it is actually supposed to be 4″x6″.

    Update: By February 12th the Kelowna Art Gallery had collected over 4000 original 4×6 artworks! They have submitted their applications to several world record organizations. Fingers crossed!

    Now I need to train my Jenday Conure about water restrictions and how hour long showers are not going to happen! She LOVES showering and tries to ‘walk backwards’ down my arm when I try to put her back on her shower perch after shower-time. She’s also tried putting her beak on the shower-perch and ‘pushing backwards’ so she ends up back in the spray, cheeky thing!

    os processos hormonais, ou seja, esses componentes presentes nos perfumes podem provocar a diminuição dos sentidos
    olfativos e fazer com que usemos cada vez mais perfume sem perceber que estamos exagerando. Segundo informações da Comissão Européia , também é

    Some everyone has even included not just musical entertainment for his or her weddings.
    So they wait until a month approximately prior to ceremony and after that approach
    their church’s musician to find out if she or he is available (or even they start looking for outside musicians).

    Don’t be afraid to obtain your closest family or friends in on the act,
    then work with your entertainers to produce a spectacular event which will be remembered and discussed for many years to come.
