Busy painting...

I am busy painting as well this time of year. To respect the privacy of the children in the photo and the gift given, here are a couple photos of only part of the painting.

Window art for Hobby Alley

Window vinyl art on the west side of Hobby Alley's Edmonton westend location at 9962 170 Street, Edmonton, AB T5T 5L5.  give them a call (780) 477-0101.

I did both design and installation. These windows are each about 4 feet wide.  



The images are big, simple and bold for catching the eye of the huge amount of drive-by traffic they get.

marriage proposal

IT WAS MY HONOR to be part of a marriage proposal recently ... it was pre-arranged that I draw the young man on one knee, with a ring in his hand and a talk bubble that said, "Tiffany, will you marry me?" and as I held it up for them both to look at, he got down on one knee with a ring and asked her to marry him. I was thrilled to be asked to do this for him. They won't be the only ones that always remember that day!


To respect the couple's privacy and to keep it really special for them, I am not adding a photo to accompany this story.

Merry Christmas from Laurél

Let the Merriment Begin!! 

Merry Christmas from Laurél. 

May your season be bright....

Bennet Jones Christmas Party.

Bennet Jones Christmas Party. 
A great bunch of people from the Edmonton law firm Bennett Jones. 

It's too bad my camera phone didn't do too well in the dim lighting. 

Here is one photo that turned out okay.

I loved this lady's glasses. She was so much fun to draw.

Window Painting at the Corus Radio Edmonton [880, 630 CHED, CISN & JOE FM]

Painting at the Corus Radio building feels like visiting an friend. 
People are very welcoming there and so kind in their greetings in seeing me back again. 
It's always fun to see which radio personalities I'll see (or hear) while I'm there. 

This is the new Santas Anonymous Santa - have you noticed that it's not like their Santa of old?

Snowball fight!


Back by popular demand ... 
I did these Christmas lights at Corus a few years ago and was asked to do them once again. 
I guess people liked them!

Snowmen in the lunchroom at Corus Radio. 
You can keep snowmen up until you just simply get sick of winter!

Crestwood fine wine and spirits

Christmas window painting at Crestwood Fine Wine & Spirits by Edmonton Artist Laurel Hawkswell

They really know their wines.  Seriously, I spent the day (while painting) listening to them talk wine to customers.  Who knew that much?  Not me.

Seasonal window painting

Grey Cup 2010 window painting at The Westin Hotel. I wonder how many fans will be taking a similar photo this weekend?!






visit to Westworld to paint their windows for Christmas

I believe it's my 5th annual visit to Edmonton's Westworld Computer Centre to paint their windows for Christmas. 


I put my thinking cap on each year to try and come up with new designs that help promote their products.
