This past weekend on September 13th & 14th, 2013, I took part in the Liberty Village Art Crawl for the first time. The weather did not corporate on Friday when I was exhibiting on Jefferson Avenue but luckily Saturday was a nicer day. Though there wasn't much of a crowd I did get to speak with a few people about my artwork and that is always lovely. I also met some really incredible artisans from the Native American community who are not only talented by very kind as well. All in all it was a fun weekend and a great way to end the summer season of outdoor art shows! This summer I did EIGHT shows and, let me tell ya, I am exhausted! I am really looking forward to a nice relaxing winter working on custom and original artwork alike. :)

There was an art contest for $500! Here is my submission. :)
Feeling confident .... but it was early in the game.
With ten minutes left in the contest many new participants joined.
Here are the final submissions.
In the end I did not win. My new friend Rob, who was inspired by my painting, created his Toronto skyline beside mine and ended up winning! Sheesh, was I disappointed. But I was happy for him. :)
