On Thursday April 18, 2013 I participated in an event put on by the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra called "What does Music Look Like, Art created by Music at the Dundas Valley School of Art". At this event local artists created new artworks as the composer Adam Scime composed electroacoustic music. The audience was able to walk amidst the artists and the composer, and even help construct the sounds Adam Scime used in his composition.
Both the composer and the artists had one hour to create their masterpieces. It was a really neat event to take part in. At first I found the music distracting, but as I got into my painting zone; I found that I felt the music more than heard it as I painted. I am really happy with the end result - this painting has been sold.

Friday night I attended the Art Auction at the Burlington Art Centre and watched one of my paintings auctioned off in support of the centre. I am so happy that I braved the snow storm and attended the auction. I was a little nervous that no one would bid on the piece and in the end a couple of people were bidding on it. It was such a boost to keep on painting!

The top painting is the finished piece entitled "Last Light" completed in studio (12 x 24 inches). The painting below it is the plein air study (6 x 12 inches) that I based the larger painting on. "Last Light" was auctioned off in support of Halton Heroes, a charity that helps the families of injured Police officers in the Halton Region.
