OK, I have decided to finally try my hand at this Blog thing - though I'm not quite sure how to go about it! The thing is, that if I don't like it I can always delete it again - but have patience with me until I get the hang of it.
I have just come home after an exciting afternoon at the East Side Culture Crawl in Vancouver and am overwhelmed by the sheer amount of quality artwork displayed in the numerous artists' studios - although it was impossible to see more than a fairly small number of them. Only drawback was that it was extremely crowded which took some of the enjoyment away and believe me, the parking was quite a challenge.
I was, of course, mainly interested in the painters, but also in the whole arrangement of so many studios on four floors under the same (very large) roof and how it worked. I can only say, that if I were younger and didn't live almost one hour away, I would be in there like a shot!
Anyway, I love my home studio and now feel all fired up and ready to get started painting again after being a bit down and unenergetic after my recent show at the Fort Gallery. I call it the "Post Show Slump" and it seems to happen every single time I have taken a show down -------------- I would have thought that I should have been used to it by now. But not so.
