It was great to be at yesterday's reception, and have another opportunity to speak with some of the other artists represented by the gallery.
It was great to see all 5 of my pieces. I added some noise over the other artists' work as I do not have permission to use them. You will note that the gallery has included the background info on the original totems.
Worked through the pain, and the submission of the 2 paintings has been made, with 1 day to spare. What a relief! Now to wait until the 12th to hear whether any have been accepted. Here's hoping.
I have 2 paintings which are nearing completion, and I wanted to flag them to you in case you are interested in possibly acquiring either, before they are submitted to the gallery or Art Show.

"Uncharted waters and unexpected doorways, a journey of faith and trust"
I received copies of both the Post Card and Business Card for the upcoming First Nations Of Faith on June 30th at the Strathmore Rodeo Grounds. I was asked for permission to use the image of the the Siksika Sacred Heart icon for the Festival.
The Special Offer has been extended for a few more days as I need to find good homes for these two pieces and make room for more space ASAP. The first is a Giclee paper print of the Ancestor painting, and the other is a mixed media on canvas 'Enduring Faith'.
Note: There are no watermarks on the pieces.
Needing to make space for the next projects, I needed to pack the two icons even though there is no confirmed transport date yet. With it being Holy Week, it will likely not be until after Easter. But in the meantime, they are all packed and ready. (You can see them leaning in the corner on the left.)
I also had to pack the 'Welcome World' painting as it is being picked up tomorrow, and working its way to its home in Powell River.
I had another productive day today in that I was able to get the drafting and enlarging done for both the new Siksika Sacred Heart Of Mary icon, and a new totem canvas of the Eagle/Raven Shield. The Eagle/Raven was calling strongly. I feel like that journey that I took with it back in 2015, just in time for the Silk Purse Solo Show, ended abruptly. I just completed it in time for the show, and it sold. So I didn't get much quiet time with it. It was also the last painting from that year and a half that I had been working on the series full-time, and it somehow feels right to return to that point and let the totem guide once again.
I've also hung the large Brown Bear on my wall, even though it isn't complete yet. But it was safer being on my wall while it waits to go back on the easel. If you happen to be interested in it, it just want to contact, please feel free to use my Contact Form on the website.
The pieces that I have left in my possession and are immediately available through a special eTransfers price are as follows:
