Update from Edmonton

Well, winter as arrived – and I had to come to Edmonton to experience the first snowfall of the season. I am so glad we had a colorful class last week. When I review the images I captured during the workshop I smile and wonder where each participant will go next – I heard a lot of comments like “I couldn’t sleep because I had some many new ideas swirling around in my head.” and “I am so excited – I will never be stuck again for a starting point!”

That is what studying design is all about. We had a great class with diverse topics. Participants elected to study Georgia O’Keefe, Claude Monet, Frank Lloyd Wright, Antoni Gaudi, Gustav Klimt, Le Corbusier, Douglas Cardinal, Lawren Harris and Boronian Architecture. As you can see from the images in the today’s slide show, each creation is unique in color and composition. Some created boxes, others chose to devote their energy to a wall piece.

Tomorrow a new group will fill the classroom with anticipation. Tonight I am scheduled to give my digital lecture and trunk show titled “Inspiration from Early 20th Century Art and Architecture”. The presentation begins at 7 pm at the Royal Alberta Museum. I will be there at 5:30 pm to connect with visitors. Let’s hope the snow eases off and the roads are easy to negotiate…

Enjoy your Sunday wherever you may reside – if you have sunshine, send a few warming rays my way!

  1. Hope you get the turnout that you wanted. Snow can cause no shows.
    The class did very interesting work and chose important candidates to study.
    Smile and enjoy the next group.
    Saw Denise Epp at Station Place and had a tour of her home and saw all of her work. She is quite an inspiration. I did not know that she was so prolific and full of so very many different ideas. If you go to see her show please let me know and maybe we and Gillian can do together.
    Smile Leona
