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!

      It can be hard to use positive direction but I have found that it is immensley rewarding as children particularly respond incredibly well. I know when we were redirecting a child who was doing things that were “naugty” we would use positive words to move the childs attention to another topic and then when that was done we were able to talk about what they could do instead

    • It seems clear that the media are trying to reduce the dominance of white people by encouraging non-white immigration and miscegenation. This is causing America to look more and more like Latin America. Do the people at the New York Times and Washington Post really want to live in a country that looks more like Brazil and less like northern Europe? Apparently they do.
