I've just finished participating in Vancouver's Eastside Culture Crawl, an annual show that has upwards of 300 artists opening their respective studios to the public. It is a much anticipated annual event and this year I have to send kudos to all who braved the wild, wet, and windy weather that plagued the entire three days. I am starting my first pet portrait commission from this years' Crawl, and if it ends up like last year, there may be some late orders still drying while under the Christmas tree! Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed my 'happy' art. I'm glad I could brighten up our dark grey days!
