My first blog post! It's kind of scary and exciting to put yourself out into the wilds of the internet. I have been dreaming about starting a blog for awhile and am excited that the time is finally here. The start of my blog also coincides with the publication of my website, and to celebrate I am giving away a painting! Keep reading to find out how you can win. But first, let me tell you a bit about me. I live and paint in a small village in southern Alberta, Canada, and my studio is in a detached garage beside our home. Isn’t it cute?
And this is my view during the summer when the overhead door is wide open. I have had birds fly in, and when I have my beeswax pot on, the bees are drawn to the smell. Surprisingly, the bees don't freak me out, but the birds sure do!
As I write more posts, I will show you more of my studio and how I create my art. I love seeing where artists create and I hope you will too! Before I get to the win-a-painting bit, I want to first thank some talented friends who made my website possible.
Firstly Kristin of K-Creative Website Design for designing my website. I love it and hope it will be easy for you to check out my work. It is also where I will be blogging from. If you are in need of a website, she is your gal.
Secondly Shannon of Chapman and Bos Photography who took the stunning photos of my artwork. If you are anywhere in Southern Alberta and in need of photography, definitely give her a call.
Now to that little contest I was telling you about! As a thank you to YOU for following me on my artistic journey, you will have a chance to win this encaustic painting called Journey Home. It’s the perfect little piece to hang in your entryway or give to that special someone as a gift (Christmas is only 61 sleeps away, after all!).
