Little Free Library

Have you seen a Little Free Library pop up in your neighborhood? They are showing up everywhere and I love them. The idea is simple: Take a book, leave a book. That’s it. There is one in my old neighbourhood that is exclusively for children, made out of an old newspaper box, with a chalkboard painted on its side for children to draw on. I was recently asked to paint one for the Cougar Ridge community, and it is now up and running, and is one of four in the area! If you want to get your own, click here!

This Weekend at Signal Hill Library

IMG_7675

This weekend, I did some live intuitive painting at the Signal Hill Library in Calgary. It was a little bit quiet on Saturday, but there were enough people coming by to chat to keep me awake! To begin the first painting, I asked two children to help me out – they added little figures and I worked the painting around the figures. It’s not the first time I have asked children to help me, but it is the first time I have kept the additions completely visible!

On Sunday, I began another painting, and had a blast talking with my friend Elaine (with me in the photo below). I also got to meet two online friends! These photos were taken by one of them, Gisele Hardock.

I have six paintings up at the library, too, until September 25. All are for sale – please contact me if you are interested.

Art at the Library!

Five of my paintings are on display at the Signal Hill Library for the month of February. And it’s a longer February than usual, so yay! Crossing my fingers to get some inquiries and sales from this. The last time I showed my art at the library was pretty successful, so I’m hopeful!
