A Day of Service to the Arts…

Yesterday evening I was wondering where the day had gone, when it suddenly struck me: I had worked all day for all kinds of art projects, except my own…

It started early morning: me still in my PJ’s, sorting out the membership list of the IEA (International Encaustic Artists). As I have accepted the sole responsibility for their Newsletter I thought I’d better get the email list up-to-date. In the process I had to figure out exporting ConstantContact lists, editing in MS Excel and entering data. It took at least an hour…

I had barely time to get dressed and hurry over to our local art centre, Leir House, to hang the new “A Little Bit of Everything” Show. Try to display a coherent show with 21 artists, 4 different media and all level skills…

Sharon, Jack and I were finished 2 hours later.A few pictures:

My submission: "Barking Parrot"

I had lunch in the car (a protein bar: highly recommended on stressful days!) and worked most of the afternoon on the financial statements from our local FCA (Federation of Canadian Artists) chapter.

It took me  a long time to find a mere $0.61 difference, but I got it all sorted out just before dinner. I’m giving up the job with tomorrow’s AGM, but will move in the 2. Vice Chair position.

I love all these organizations and I don’t mind giving some of my time to support them, but yesterday was a bit much…;-)
Especially as it was a gorgeous day here in the South Okanagan and it would have been nice to go for a walk or potter in the garden a bit. On my way from town I took this photo:
You have to agree: the Okanagan IS the most beautiful place on earth!
