I hardly know these kids but seeing these kids singing together for the CBC music class challenge almost got me teary eyed. I’m such a sucker for group performances.
You know why I love opening day in Fernie? It’s not what you might expect. Or maybe you know me well enough now to know exactly why I love opening day. Opening day means the start of skiing for my husband and kids…which leaves time for me to paint! YES! It was such a beautiful opening weekend, too. My family had a wonderful time at the hill and I painted until they came home hungry and tired legged. It was a wonderful weekend. It was a particularly good weekend for painting. I also attended a paint and sip type night with Angela Morgan and a group of amazing, supportive women. It was a night of wine, food and also fundraising for Angela’s daughter who wants to build houses in El Salvador. I painted an Angela Morgan type painting in oils, which is a first for me, in two ways. It was a steep learning curve but I embraced my novice inferiority feelings and dove in. Hooray for opening day!
The Arts Station is a cool place to be and to find people who share a love of creative expression. Maybe you have a little something you want to share with others? Maybe you want to introduce a special project with the rest of us? I’ve often thought about doing a mini workshop but it also terrifies me…so I probably won’t just yet. But you should!
Sadly, I won’t be at these craft fairs with my art or our mobiles. We will be in Calgary at Curated. but I fully recommend this local handmade craft fair. It will be packed with good local goods and you have two options – Friday night and Saturday.
If you’re in town on December 15, Michelle and I will be at that craft fair selling our mobiles and suspended art, including ornaments and banners.
