Morning Road Trip

The past few months have seen my focus shift to many aspects of my business other than actually taking pictures.  Between art walks, preparing for my upcoming gallery exhibit this fall, setting up a 'store front' presence, attending a workshop or two, and numerous other 'business' activities; there has been one constant... no 'camera-time'.  This past weekend I tossed my hands in the air and said "Enough is enough!!" and hit the road.  No, unfortunately it was not one of my multi-day road trips... heck, it wasn't even a full day trip.  Although it was only a few hours spent wandering the back-roads of Parkland County, it was definitely a much needed creative break and quite rejuvenating.  The icing on the cake was the fact that I got a few 'keepers' along the way!!

Happy New Year!!

It's that time of year again where we all sit perplexed and wonder what happened to the past year.  It seems like only yesterday that I was looking forward to 2014, and yet here I am contemplating what 2015 has in store. 

This year, I welcomed in the New Year with a bang courtesy of the Town of Stony Plain.  The town rang in 2015 with a Family Fest that wrapped up with a fireworks display.  Those of you that follow me know that I'm a sucker for a fireworks show to photograph.  It was a great way to spend the evening with family and friends... and my camera!!

Unleashing Culture

I've often felt lucky to be able to live in a town like Stony Plain.  With its "small town" feel and pride of community, it's a place I'm proud to call home and raise my daughter.  Like many other municipalities, the Town of Stony Plain has made great strides in supporting and promoting the arts and culture in the community.  Tonight, the Town added one more feather to its well festooned cap.

In conjunction with the Cultural Round Table, the Town hosted the Unleashing Culture exhibit this evening.  Bringing together local businesses and individuals involved in artistic and cultural endeavors, it was an amazing showcase of the talent in our own backyard.  The artwork and performances on display tonight were amazing.  I was truly honored to have been selected to exhibit several of my prints.  The feedback received was beyond anything I could have imagined.  It was a great evening and I would like to thank all involved in hosting the event, those that I had the chance to talk with, and my dear friends that have supported me since day one.
