I enjoyed my visits to the libraries in White Rock, Langley, Port Coquitlam and Mission. A special thanks to the librarians who organized everything and the students and other assorted people who attended. A special thanks to those intrepid souls (you know who you are) who trekked from the Terry Fox library to the school when the class that was scheduled wasn’t able to attend.
Below is a picture of some of the excellent audience from Mission. I think many of these exceedingly photogenic peeps are part of that library’s book club, which is arranged by the library’s awesome children’s librarian.
Anyway, thanks everyone who came out.
And now that I’m home for a few months I can really focus on the art class James and I are taking. It’s an Acrylics for Beginners course and I’m thinking that I may have some serious talent lurking in me somewhere.
My experimentation with colour this week was quite outstanding. In addition to creating over thirty shades of “mud” I did get a sort of dull green. Which I accidentally turned to mud. My main concern at this point is that one of the gallery owners will spot one of my paintings as I exit after class and pressure me into doing a one-woman show before I’m ready. One has to consider all the possibilities. Also, there is now the concern that our house will soon be a target for art thieves, what with our amazing paintings just lying around without any individualized alarms protecting them or anything. Perhaps I should increase our house insurance. But how can you put a price on genius? Sigh.
Perhaps I’ll post some photos of my efforts here. If you insist on sending in wildly extravagent bids, I will completely understand.
