Here I am with my billboard image
(the image is a detail from a larger abstract painting called 'Prana')
a #YEGCanvas event
A BIG thank you to:
The Edmonton Arts Council and Pattison signs!
I mentioned in a previous blog posting (Nov 1) that I was one of the artists selected to have a painting displayed on a billboard in the #YEGCanvas urban billboard and transit poster exhibition for 2016/2017. Click here for the map to locate each billboard/poster for this round of artists (my billboard is #2 on the map.)
Locating my billboard was a fun game of hide and seek even though it was a bit of a cold overcast day here in Edmonton when I ventured up to 97 Street and 135 Avenue to find the billboard image of my painting. Luckily my husband drove so I could swivel my head around (not quite like Linda Blair in the 'Exorcist'... but close) looking at the front and back of each sign until I found mine in the 'Fountain Tire' parking lot, southbound on 97 Street. What a thrill!
Numerous photos and one short video later we were on our way back home... but the day felt warmer and a whole lot sunnier... at least for me!
