Hello all, I have just discovered this blog site and I am quite excited to explore all of the options. It may take a while with lots of trial and error. "Just do it" are good words to live by. I often say that to myself when I am faced with a blank canvas, just make a mark and get things going, you may be surprised where you end up! I have had two paintings on exhibit at YVR for about 3 months, I have had a good response, one even led to showing in a gallery in Cochrane, Alberta. I picked them both up yesterday and sold one today to someone who saw it in the departure lounge. I would say to other artists, take advantage of opportunities to show your work you don't know when a piece may speak to someone.
