Opus Art Supplies hosted an Outdoor Painting challenge in several communities today. There was no cost for participants and we each received an 8"x10" canvas board, a map of the designated area and a pin that indicated we didn't mind if photos were taken. So, I joined about 200 other participants in Langley in the quest to create a small image before 3:00pm.
Artists ranged in age from 5-85 years of age and used a variety of media...watercolour, oils, pastels, ink, coloured pencils and even a glue gun to adhere found objects onto the canvas board.
I chose to do a simple collage with a painted background

What a great weekend!
August and his parents visited to help us
with offloading "stuff" from the condo.
On Sunday we joined John, Doug and Shelly for lunch and a performance of "Shakespeare in Hollywood" at the Metro Theatre. Heather, Chris and August were in the audience too... so August saw his Uncle Adrian on stage for the first time. It was a hilarious production, very entertaining!

We had a wonderful and supportive visit this weekend from Vancouver Island. Heather, Chris and Augie helped to load a u-haul van with various items from the condo. John and Chris drove to the Surrey Transfer station and deposited the load before returning to enjoy a pre-dinner toast of high quality scotch...a reward for their hard work. The stove cooperated and yielded a delicious roast chicken with stuffing, potatoes, peas and carrots topped with tasty gravy!
We also discovered one more painting in the same theme as the other five... a slightly different size.
We have set tomorrow as our official "move-in" date.
