It was a nice afternoon at the Massey Gallery,Â Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, acting as the Artist in Residence alongside Adam Noonan for the Integrate Arts Festival and Summer Small Works Exhibition and Sale.
It was cool enough inside the temperature controlled environment to enjoy painting, while outside the day sizzled on the hottest day of the year in Victoria 2012.
I decided to wear black to celebrate my dedication to winter months, as did Renee Crawford, Art Rental and Sales Consultant for the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. We were like a team.
Adam Noonan on the other hand, was appropriately dressed in light summer casuals. Would we expect anything less from this fine gentleman?
It was a treat to see Adam work, while I puttered away yakking and painting. I learned Adam does his underpainting in sepia tones, I thought that was pretty cool, and it obviously lends itself well to the warmth emanating from his paintings.
I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon, and thanks to Renee for inviting me to participate!
