22nd Annual TD Canada Trust Moss Street Paint-In

The Moss Street Paint-In has become the premiere event for showcasing emerging and established artists on Vancouver Island. This was my first time exhibiting at this event and it was a fantastic experience. Over 125 artists set-up their studios on the street for an afternoon of creation, education and inspiration. As an artist I believe my job is to engage the viewer and when the viewer is right in front of you watching your ever hand movement, every motion of the brush, every layer of paint saturate the weave of the canvas, it is an emotional experience shared by both the artist and the art lover. The event was only 4 hours in length but attracted a crowd of over 30,000. An excellent and inspiring afternoon...look forward to next year.
