It is always great to be accepted into a juried exhibition, and the Shuswap Artist's Annual Juried Members' Exhibition is no exception. I am looking forward to opening night especially, I love meeting and talking with everyone, artists and patrons alike. I am excited to see what my fellow artists have entered too.

These kind of events are very inspiring as well. I have a new drawing/painting on my desk at the moment, I have finally arranged a still life with some of my many treasures and mementos and am working from that "tableau". I see now why I haven't done this very! Its difficult to find the room to make up an arrangement of objects, leave them there and hopefully not have them get messed up! (no fingers pointed...but, I do have a curious cat). I am looking forward to seeing how this painting progresses, there are some different elements involved that I haven't tackled before.
