The time has come to tell you what my little painting is
all about. Jill Yuzwa, Kim Rempel and Jeanette
Vermeyden-Obbink in Ayr, Ontario put out a call a
couple of months ago to bloggers and other artists
asking for women artists from around the world to
participate in a show together to celebrate the
100th anniversary of International Women's Day.
So on March 8th, 2011 the painting shown here
and at least 99 works by other women will be shown
together at Ayrspace Gallery in Ayr, Ontario.

Today was the deadline for getting the images and
writing in for the International Women Celebrate
book. So I headed over to the studio where my
photographer son, Christopher, works to get my
painting captured photographically. Now I am
done. That painting and the necessary added
written copy have flown off over the Internet and
now I can savour dreams of the kick off weekend,
when I'll meet the other great women artists who are
taking part in this fine exhibition. Cool eh?
But there's something else. On Thursday morning
I'm heading over to City TV here in Toronto,
to draw the host Tracey Moore during the taping of
the show. More TV! I'll give you more information
on that tomorrow. But meanwhile time to move on
to the next project.
