This past weekend was Whistler's annual "Paint Off!". I was excited to be one of the ten artists asked to participate. The contest took place in the Mountain Square in Whistler B.C.'s village. We all began on Sat at noon with empty canvas'. We painted 12-5 on Sat. and Sunday. On Sunday the public voted for their favourite painting. All the paintings turned out beautifully.
At the end of Sunday the winners were announced, Leilani the Artist took third place, Baz One second and I was thrilled to receive over 130 votes and come in in first place.
Art is a subjective thing. Win or lose I was happy to be outside painting for two days beside 9 talented artists. It was great to be a part of this awesome interactive event that raises awareness for the arts and local arts scene.
