Toad n Turtle Fundraiser
The Toad n Turtle in Airdrie is hosting a fundraiser for those affected by the flood on Canada Day from noon til 9. Check out their facebook page for details. I'm donating the above print (size 8x10...framed and ready to hang) to the silent auction. If you are interested pop down for a pint and put in a bid :) Cheers!
Truly seeing in colour
I have been dropping into Jane Romanishko's art class again recently, focusing on the basics of color theory. I have never had any formal instruction in color and honestly have been quite overwhelmed when it comes to the subject. I'm thoroughly enjoying mixing watercolors and practicing purposeful combinations and the discovery process that comes with it. I feel like I'm just now beginning to understand and truly see in colour. Thank you Jane :)
This morning I had a couple of quiet hours to get out my watercolours for awhile for some practice. I love experimenting with simple colour and simple subject matter. Afterwards I snapped a few pics and did some editing on my iPhone. Double the fun :). I wonder...is this considered mixed media?
Growing up in Central Alberta, the Prairies will always be my home. I love to capture local landscape through photography and iPhone editing. Having the flexibility of mobile editing has been an amazingly creative tool for me. I love experimenting and learning and am excited to see what this next year will bring.
