I’m training for Art Battle yet again! Today I switched it up a bit and did some faces instead of hearts. I’ve done hearts on all my battle paintings, and I need a change! These are both 20-minute paintings, 16″ x 20″, called “Love me”, and available to purchase either apart or as a set. Contact me to purchase!
I had a blast at art battle last night, at HiFi Club in Calgary. It was as much fun as the last few times I tried – great music, lots of people, super-intense energy! I will definitely do this again! One day I want to compete in the national competition! :)
Round One… I won!
Round 2: Congrats to the winner, Michael!

It’s Art Battle training time again! Art Battle is a friendly competition for artists: we are given the paint, the canvas, and 20 minutes to create what we want/can. The audience votes for their favourite paintings, and the top 4 finalists compete in the last round. This year, I have my eye on the nationals!
Both of the paintings here were created in 20-minutes. Working this quickly allows me to let go of any critical voices, because they just don’t have a chance to take hold – my hands are moving too quickly! It’s like a really fast dance, with paint.
Art Battle is this Thursday at HiFi. For more information on Art Battle, and to purchase tickets, click here.
Two days left to get on my email list for a chance to purchase one of my 3 Art Battle 20-minute training paintings, and PAY-WHAT-YOU-WANT.
I’m happy to share that I was one of the featured artists on the Abundant Artist Live talk today, along with Michelle Leivan, an artist who has painted over 60 selfies this year – amazing! If you haven’t checked out The Abundant Artist yet, do it! They share videos, articles and posts all helping to dispel the starving artist myth, and helping artists to promote themselves.
Here’s the video!
