One: Distractions

Development and Peace/Caritas Canada

Life overflows with distractions these days. We spent this weekend in Calgary for the Regional Assembly for Development and Peace/Caritas Canada. I was a delegate this time and very thankful for only three resolutions, or was it four? In any case, it did not take much time.

Disheartening snow

Cold, wet snow

The only disheartening event over the weekend happened as we stepped out the door Saturday night on our way home. Six inches of cold wet snow. As we scraped off the windows and struggled with the underlying ice I was wishing for my gloves. At least I wore boots.

Another reason I visited the city was the end of the Artpoint “Large Works” show. “Sparkles” is safely back in my studio. Not sure whether to hang it or store it. I will figure that out tomorrow. 

Teamwork

As well, a fundraiser for WAM (Women’s Art Museum) inspired a donation from Sabine who left her work at Artpoint to pick up. During our weekly telephone conversation for DEVENIR I mentioned my trip to Calgary and Doris made the connection and asked if I could bring the work back to Edmonton with me. Sometimes helping someone else out is really easy. Teamwork makes light work.

Dealing with distractions

Next week looks a little better as far as studio time goes. The days and weeks fly by so quickly and I am not going to meet my projected budget for paintings this month. May will be better although distractions still abound in the form of gardening and workshops. One thing is for certain; I am never bored.
