In my very first blog *"How Long Does it Take to Paint a Painting" [June 8, 2008], I mentioned how I'm struggling with my giant (96"x48") tree painting. As promised, I've uploaded a snap shot on how it has been progressing.
I feel a certain sense of satisfaction of how it has evolved these last few weeks, but I still need to work on the water area...

[from "Whistler Art and Adventure" June 30, 2008]
I finally received the rafting photos in the mail from when my girlfriend, her son and I were in Whistler. After voraciously ripping the envelope open and looking at them, it got me all jazzed up to do it again!
I set my mind to making some small (6"x4") samples to send send out to galleries ["Painting Samples" July 2, 2008]. Below is a photo of the sample - I made 11 of them, all the same-ish and
enclosed them in this folder. I also included my CV, artist's statement, personal statement, business card and pricing list.
I've sent out three packages so far and have a few more in mind that I will address shortly.
The Art in the Park event happened this Saturday in Abbotsford. It was a lot of fun meeting new people and seeing their work. I'm back at it again on Saturday, July 26.
These two photos are the of the nice shady space I had. I have a tent, but really didn't feel like setting it up! The shade looked just fine and what a gorgeous day too!
A few friends and I (and their dogs, of course!) went on a hike up past Chilliwack Lake. We hiked up to Lindemann Lake:
the colours of blues and greens in the lake were spectacular!
AND... of course, more tree photos! I had fun taking this shot at an angle... looks kind of weird!
Here's the "normal shot" of the above photo...
