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!

  3. Круто! Некоторые пункты чрезвычайно тонко подмечены!
    Я ценю, что ты сочинил эти посты
    ,а также остальные данные они
    вполне хороши.

  4. There are a number of callers before me and I have Ad-Jd.
    It will take a while with this being associated with a
    help; a minimum of a month. Many top players advise against multi-tabling at
    all, especially inside case of new players, who must be focusing intently on staring
    at the players at their table, and paying close care about anything that happens.

  5. Автор мастерски ведет обсуждение по поводу этой мысли именно в данном блоге, я прочитал все, и в данный момент мне
    также хочется прокомментировать предложенные данные.

  6. Сохраню как “Избранное”, мне нравится ваш авторский ресурс!

  7. Я сегодня серфил онлайн более трех часов, но я так и не нашел ни одной интересной статьи, подобной вашей.
    Происходящее приятно удивило меня.
    На мой взгляд, если все владельцы тематических страниц и блоггеры делали бы хороший контент, как вы, то полезных материалов
    появлялось бы более, чем достаточно.
