Saturday the 3rd I gave a painting Demonstration at Petley Jones Gallery here in Vancouver. I admit to having a little case of the jitters seeing as I have never done anything like this before, but it turned out to be a cool experience. The turn out was modest (maybe half a dozen to ten at any given time, twenty to thirty in total), which was probably a good thing – a lot of people might have wigged me out!

  1. Looks like you were having fun. I would have been worried about out of control paint messing up the gallery or the visitors. By the way the show looks great in the pictures. Which part of Vancouver is the gallery in and how long is the show up for?

    1. Thanks Deb, The gallery is in South Granville in an area called “Gallery Row”, Heffel’s just around the corner, and there are a few more in the immediate area. I was a little preoccupied with only having two hours to do a complete painting without it being a piece of crap to worry about making a mess,haha.
      With the exception of the little islet, which didn’t turn out well, the piece is actually not bad considering the circumstances.
      The show runs for another week (two in total)

      1. Thanks for the info. I just “mapquest”-ed it and the gallery is a 2 minute drive from Maiwa where I get my dyes. I thought I would ask as we will be buzzing through Vancouver sometime on Thursday. Usually it is around 4 am when we get there, but if we get delayed and hit Vancouver during daylight hours seeing your show would be a bonus.
