At 4pm before the doors open the line up was building.The vibe was exhilarating to say the least.Everyone wanted to buy art ,help raise money for the new library in Powell River ,add to there collection with out knowing who the artist is and was thrilled to make it in the door.The evening went off with out a hitch the volunteers have done an amazing job with over 100 paintings to display.The show is up all weekend long and is so worth a visit.There is so much talent on the walls this weekend and it is a unique art show to attend and be ANONYMOUS….xoxoxo

Today I feel like I have achieved a personal Victory .Back in the Spring I attended a very fun and awesome workshop by Kate Church .We learned how to create art dolls her way.She took us step by step and it was very intense .We all walked away with new friends and fresh ideas to take home to our studio’s.In the summer I went to a natural dye workshop on Cortes Island by Heather Young which also got me working and creating my own textile art.Using the skills I have learned this year has given me an opportunity to try my hand to create my own art doll with a body suit I naturally dyed using onion skins.I love making these art dolls its a small scale of combining all my different trades in to one hair ,make-up ,fashion styling into one art piece.Today I celebrate A Personal Victory to dress my first art doll I created on my own.She is stuffed and ready. I look forward to sharing her all dressed. Her name is Laurisa and well be part of my new art installation called That Wall along side 12 other art dolls and so much more.I share a photo from the photo shoot last nite.
