Back to Reality!

I've had a few days to basically just paint and work on pieces for my upcoming shows and not have to worry about rushing off to the restaurant every evening. But that all comes to a screeching halt this afternoon as I must return to work.

On a brighter note, the Incentive Works convention was an amazing opportunity for me to network, meet new people and really introduce a whole new group of individuals to my art! It was incredibly rewarding and I cannot thank the organizers at Tourism Toronto enough for including me in the event. Hopefully, some actual work will pan out for me through the contacts that I made. Here are a few pics from the show...I was painting live on the spot! The photos aren't wonderful but once I get better ones, will post those too. I've also posted the finished photo of the Girl with the Porcelain Mask.














Have a great weekend everyone.
xoxo with love .

The convention looks like it was fun! I dont know if I could have painted live in front of everyone though, I find it so nerve racking, but you look like a pro. Have a nice weekend!

Thanks lovely! Im still a bit confused. Did you get the update from the new blog or old blog? And did you have to update your follower link or did it just happen automatically? Sorry to bother you and take up your space! Im trying to figure out if I need to start from scratch with the followers widget.
