Who knew it? Today has been declared International Artist Day. A big thanks to Alyson Stanfield for posting on this and letting me know – I’ve been so busy painting at The Banff Centre in a residency, I didn’t even know it! There is something to be said about creative time…and something to be said about keeping your radar ears on. Today is the day we move all these fresh new paintings out of my studio in Banff and back into the Canmore studio for finishing touches. Boy, am I celebrating on so many levels!
