Once again, I'll be a part of the Night of Artists Onoway show and sale, held in Onoway, Alberta. Last year's event, in April 2009, was a huge success and the town of Onoway (where I was born and raised until six years old) welcomed us with open arms. As last year, I created and designed the web design for their official website: www.NOAO.ca as well as the graphic design for their event program. It's a lot of work, but very much worth it! This event includes musicians and bands performing, dance demonstrations, food, drink, and a wide assortment of artists - sculptors, jewelers, painters, photographers, and more. The event will be on April 23rd and 24th, 2010, and for more information on the event and how to purchase tickets, please visit www.NOAO.ca. I'll post pictures after the event!
Because of the success and demand generated from the first workshop I taught in Hanna, Alberta (May 2009), they have invited me back to teach another workshop. This time, I'll be doing two separate workshops on one weekend - the first being a beginner introduction to colored pencils, and the second advancing on the techniques to provide examples of how to do complete scenery with colored pencils. I'm excited to be teaching again, as it's a lot of fun to pass on the things that I've learned in my experiences with colored pencils. It's excellent to introduce other artists to this fabulous medium. The workshop details are included in the poster below: (click to view larger)
I know it has been a LONG time since I have posted, but I am going to try to make a better effort to keep in touch with my few blog-readers and fans. And so, here are a couple WIP shots of "Regard". Although it's taking much longer than originally planned, it is still going really well, and it is coming together nicely. I'm excited to have it finished, and see it framed next to "Focus". They will make quite the pair.
