Ok- well Wednesday is here and some fun meetings today. Yesterday was successful in some ways. I connected with Bonnie Raitt management and Ani Difranco management regarding the Guitar Woman project so that looks promising for the book. RBC is meeting today to discuss the support of the Rideau Canal project. We aligned an interview with Kenya for the conservation project they have in mind. I spoke with Ron Sigurdson regarding the Cochrane mural and that looks promising. Ron Corbett from the Ottawa Citizen confirmed he will paint in the mural as did Max Keeping which is great! So now we just wait to see where the chips will fall. Today I am off to a meeting with CPAWS as we want to get this auction built up to much higher levels. So we will see where that will lead us. Felicia Colins from the David Letterman Late Show band has expressed interest in performing at our event in May which is wonderful. There is a lot of excitement on the horizon. I will just keep moving until the path presents itself....which I think will be soon.
Another Guitar Woman painting is shown today... this time its Roxanne Potvin....

I am beginning Tuesday on a positive note. Monday was a good day. I spent the morning working on media kits for James Cohen- Flamenco guitarist extraordinaire! Then continued my work on sponsor kits and promotional material for NOA 2007. Lots and lots of writing!!
Then in the afternoon I drove out to Lavoie studios for a Mural Mosaic meeting. Good to see the boys- Paul especially as I had not seen him since he left 2 months ago for Thailand.
Good meeting and we have some great ideas for marketing the mural auction.
Returned home then went to meeting with Flavia Robles to discuss possibility of creating my own venue for events in downtown Edmonton. Could be very cool... Just waiting to see what the partnership agreement would be and what my life options will be as well.
Today the picture I am adding is the second in the four I created for the Guitar Women series. I will add a new one daily. This one is based on Ellen McIlwaine.

Today is the day I will begin a new life with NOA and my own self. It has been a very hard last 2 months personally and although I have pain inside I know that I have to move forward in order to heal. Today is the day where I will be reborn and start something amazing. I have realized I have many great friends and many people that love me. My art can help heal me and my passion will lead my on to new adventures. Today I am writing to start fresh and have posted an image that will always mean something to me- more then words could ever say. It may represent a chapter in my life that I will miss but it also represents the future. ..whatever that may be.
So beginning January 20th I will begin to write from the heart and begin to create amazing things again...
I am back....Philly
