My NOA Cover Competition entry


I’m excited to be participating in the Night of Artists this year and part of the perks of joining in this fabulous event is their NOA magazine cover competition.

This year there are 49 wonderful artists participating in the competition.

I decided to submit “New Song” as my entry this year as I thought it embodied the NOA festival being both an instrument and an art piece. The competition is popularity based and the top 5 most liked artists will move on to the finals for a chance to grace the cover.

The votes are open to the public so if you’d be so kind to cast your vote for me and any others that catch your eye just click on the guitar image below and follow the link to the official page, press like on my guitar and then voila done. Voting ends on January 31st at 9pm Alberta time.

ALFA Gallery Set up


Well it’s official! I am all set up at the Fort Saskatchewan ALFA Gallery.

It feels like it’s been a long time coming but it’s here.

Here’s a sneak peak of the set up.

So if you’re in the area please check it out and sign the guestbook.

Also, all works on exhibit are available for sale.

I’ll be posting more pictures and video and my interview with the local radio station I did yesterday are coming so stay tune!

Cheers,

Amanda

On a different Note…


I’m taking a slight break from Canvas Paintings & Jewelry to start work on a new entry into my Color of Music series.

I’ve had it in the back of my head that I’d love to do a gallery exhibit of a bunch of my painted instruments but so far every one I’ve done has sold not that I’m complaining ;), but it does makes it a tad difficult to put on an exhibit without any pieces in my possession lol.

So today I dug through my stash of goodies that I have squirreled away in my studio and picked out another guitar to start working on tonight. I had a few electrics, another child’s acoustic and this big acoustic that I thought would be a nice change since my last piece was an electric and the one before a child acoustic.

As you can tell, my dog likes to sleep in my studio 🙂 and couldn’t be bothered to move heh.

I have a general idea of what I want to do with this piece but I won’t tell at the moment until I start and sort things out 🙂 but stay tuned and I’ll post as I work on it over the next few days.
