My return to painting
Taking six or seven weeks off from an activity that I have done almost every single day for 10 years had an impact on my confidence. I went into this time of transition embracing the fact that I wouldn't be able to pick up a brush for the entire month of August. Originally, I thought being in the new studio and back at the easel by early September was very realistic. However, the Universe had different plans.
Despite the uncertainty in our building timelines, I reached a point mid-summer where I needed to start making commitments. Very quickly, several live painting gigs landed in the calendar, which meant I needed to get resupplied and back into painting mode.
I have two additional live painting opportunities in Calgary in the coming week, one of which will feature a Battle of Alberta reunion between Mark Messier and Lanny McDonald.
