Welcome to the first day of my blog

This is a giant step for me: I consider myself to be somewhat technologically challenged as I would rather spend my time in my studio than at my computer desk learning the latest technological wonders. However, I've started this blog in an attempt to keep up with the times and to allow family and friends to keep up with my art practice during those weeks/months between my Shameless Self-Promotion Announcements.

Today I delivered my entry "Winged Woman With Sturdy Shoes" in the Inspiration for the Cure art competition hosted by De Dutch. Their idea is to have artists submit 2-d works that depict a future without breast cancer - accepted works (being judged this week) will be exhibited at an upcoming Artists Reception and twelve of the works will be chosen to be made into a limited edition postcard series sold at De Dutch, with proceeds to go to the BC/Yukon Breast Cancer Foundation. Also, if my painting is one of the 12 chosen, I will get a free meal a month for a year at De Dutch - woo-hoo! Strawberry Waffles, here I come!

Now, if I can figure out the next step to this blog, I'll post a picture of Winged Woman With Sturdy Shoes. Wish me luck!
