Happy International Artist Day To You!…And a big fat Happy Birthday to Picasso & Me! Let’s Do Cake.

International Artist DayWho 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!

Given that October 25th is Picasso‘s birthday….and also MY birthday, I’m sure next year, I’ll be a lot more prepared to party!

“Guernica” – Pablo Picasso. I remember the first time I saw this. It moved me and made me think.
