A Very Busy Time... a big thank you to everyone who stopped by my Art Walk Booth —to have their faces drawn, look at my paintings or browse through my journals. It was wonderful to talk to everyone and thank you so much for all the wonderful comments about my work. It was a fantastic sunny weekend! I hope you all enjoy your drawings and paintings a lot. I will have more available at my Fringe booth Aug. 14-24 right in front of the Walterdale Theatre.

Here's a peek at a few of my paintings that were sold...and more presents for teachers... The shoe card I made was inspired by the "Red Shoe Reader" altered book by Gaza Bowen that I had the opportunity to see in the Bruce Peel special collections of the Rutherford Library at the University of Alberta. I created the acordian pocket book so that my son's kindergarten class could all write on tags to their teacher and they would just slide right in as a special souvineer of a great year.

The tags books were for the three wonderful assistant teachers that helped make the year run smooth.

This summer so far I have been all over the province drawing— in Bonnyville for Canada Day, in Calgary for a Stampede Event, in Wainwright for their Centennial Celebration as well as a very fun staff party for IKEA. Life is BUSY!
