First day
Yesterday was the first day of the Island Arts Expo in Qualicum Bay. I really enjoy this venue as it is about as local as I can get, under 10 minutes from my doorstep. Lots of people came through to browse and I have had lots of positive feedback and interest in my resin tile paintings. Many people wanted to know how I did them and I joked about giving all my secrets away, but explained my process anyways. I did not go into how much time I spent on the little pieces and how many steps it took to get them to their finished state. These art pieces serve an important purpose in my creative process. They soothe my need to experiment, thus leaving my most important canvas work on task. Does that statement make sense? Simply put, they stop me from messing with my paintings!

I heard a great suggestion yesterday. When an interested party tells you they have no more room on their walls but love a particular painting, suggest that they store away some of the paintings they have on their wall and put up new art. They can switch it up whenever they want to and never get tired of looking at the same old painting! Some works are better in certain seasons...like perhaps in the heat of the summer, cooler works would give a comfortable atmosphere in the home, while in the cold winter, warmer works may be a nice change. Hmm...I may just talk about that today with the appropriate browsers. I personally change my work up in my house all the time, for different reasons of course as my work is up and down all the time, but it really is exciting putting up something new here and there.

I really like this "falling back" of time. That hour makes such a difference. I slept really well, dreamed some crazy dreams and woke up feeling wonderful. Here's hoping for a great day today!
