I find myself at a bit of a loss for words as I reflect on the amazing response Vancouver had to my artwork at the Show last week. There were many ‘highlights’ including sales, new connections with some wonderful people, praise & affirmation of my work, etc….
But there is one that stands out from all the rest, and it is this I must share with you.
I met a gentleman who is a gifted & passionate photographer on Saturday. He kindly shared some of his time with me, discussing my Art, his Photography & life. Little did I know how great an impact this meeting would have on me in the days to follow!
Late Sunday afternoon, when I was feeling the effects of having been standing on my feet for 5 days straight, I received an email from the aforementioned gentleman, and in it he provided a link to a blog posting he had done about me. As I read the blog posting, I experienced a sense of gratitude & humility I will never forget…..I also felt some relief from my aching feet! I think I felt like I could run a marathon, to be perfectly honest.
So without further ado, I wish to publicly express my heartfelt gratitude to Flynn Marr, Photographer & gifted Blogger, new friend & fellow artist. Your actions have inspired me to be more outwardly demonstrative of my often ‘silent’ appreciation of other’s giftings.

Be sure to check out Flynn’s website as well – it is well worth the visit!
And here is a photo of my Art Wall at the BC Home & Garden Show last week…..
