On Monday, Bridget and I drove to Prince Albert to retrieve all of the artwork that our studio group submitted to the Mann Art Gallery 42nd Annual Winter Festival Juried Art Show and Sale. On Wednesday, I then drove to Regina to deliver my two pieces from that show (including "Rustle" which won the Hues Art Supply Award), along with three others, to the Assiniboia Gallery.

Above is one of the new 10 x 10's I took to Regina; I will show the other in an upcoming post.

When I arrived at the gallery I was greeted by my own painting, "Festivities", right at the entrance!

A little grid of my 10x10's was displayed in the beautiful glowing front room of the gallery. The large painting you see on the left is actually hanging on a wall suspended from the ceiling a few feet in front of a big picture window and on the other side is another painting on view to the street.

I'm glad I made the time to deliver new work... they were getting low and I am very grateful for that!
 
Besides all of this travel, our studio group had a big planning meeting on Tuesday and my son had a band concert on Thursday! Whew! It was a busy week!
