I didn't announce this before Christmas, because I was waiting for my official paperwork...which was "delayed" until after January 1, but I was adjudicated in to the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) as an Active member! I had to submit my work (in this case, my website showcasing my work), to our Chapter officials and I'm happy to say I was accepted. This Active status gives me more opportunity to enter juried shows, thus gaining more exposure to potential clients and other artists. I'm looking forward to submitting more work! It's very motivating.
Here's are links to the Canada wide FCA site and our Central Okanagan Chapter site. I'll soon have my name in the list of artists. Stay tuned!
I've painted more pansies, daisies, roses...a couple I'm not so happy with and will be re-assessing :-)...What I don't like I paint over! So far I've done 8 little flower paintings and one large one. Will post THAT experience early next week!
