24 HAM

The 24 Hour Art Marathon at Eastern Edge was this weekend and it seemed to me to be a great success. Very well organized, and a good crowd despite the ugly wind and rain. Here are some pics; if you want to see more I put a crapload up on Facebook. The Live Auction is on Thursday; check out for details!

It's done

Well, I did finish the painting. It's at the Leyton gallery in St. John's now if you have a chance to drop in. Had a bit of trouble with the composition with this one, so I followed some advice and tried putting a rectangle in the background. I like it!
