Yesterday I atteded the awards ceremony and critique of work submitted. I thought I would write about the experience of attending this event, but now realize I should have snapped more photos to share.
The event was held in a beautifully restored old barn. The room was full of hanging art works, smiling artists, and busy volunteers. I was taken by a number of delightful paintings. Some oil, some watercolour, landscapes, and portraits. I had only wished that I had more time to enjoy each painting individually, studying the detail and brush strokes.
I have walked away with encouragement, insight, enthusiasm, and excitement from a wonderful group to belong to and enjoy. I will keep you posted with details from the next event. Red Deer here I come!
