Re: Issa Live 2012!

Gosh, what a wonderful day today! There was an added surprise at the end of the reception, but I'll let Harold and Allan talk about that. I missed it as I brought some people back to the hotel early.

There was another scratchboard sold today! The awards were given out and although none of mine made the cut, the scratchings that got them so deserved it.

I'm downloading pics right now and it will take a little bit to reduce and crop them.

Re: Issa Live 2012!

Oh my goodness, look at me!!! What a goose! And Hector and Roger in the photo with me, they are the best people!!

Amazing day. We were in seventh heaven. All of us chewing the fat over scratchboard and solving the world's problems. It was amazing and I kept saying I was like a kid in a candy store. Just to talk for hours on end with artists I've only ever known online was brilliant. Then there was the pleasure of seeing the faces on the people who won awards.

After the show I got to go back to Diana's house which is full of her gorgeous art so I was treated to the second exhibition in one day.

And then to top it all off, at the AGM over pizza, Rodman performed magic tricks for a goggle-eyed Patrick, his wife and two sons. Rod is not only magic with his art, not only magic with his magic, but he is also magic with his personality

Re: Issa Live 2012!

LOTS of photos were taken today by many people! I've set up an album on Photobucket that we can all access to upload and view photos.

Go to http://s1060.photobucket.com/albums/...ratchissa/2012 the password is issa2012 after entering that, click on the "all albums" tab
I've uploaded some of my photos from the exhibition.

The albums are private, but you can view them with the direct link. If you have photos to upload, please do! For that, log in as scratchissa with the password issa2012. There's an album for the exhibition and another album for other random photos.

True?!?! I've always wanted to visit Vancouver and the weather is perfect at that time of year. I was so disappointed to have to cancel travel plans for this one, I'm not missing 2013.

Re: Issa Live 2012!

Do you need a passport to go to Canada if you're in the US? I went to Montreal about 15 years ago and didn't need one... But I may try to talk my husband into how great the fishing is around Vancouver and plan a trip... in June...

Re: Issa Live 2012!

We're watching Lorna scratch skin right now. Before that was Rodman's cool demo of airbrush on claybord.

Yep, you need a passport. We have family in Montreal and New Brunswick. Ever since 9-11 it's become more important to have one. Now, it's required.
Good thing you have plenty of time to get one

Re: Issa Live 2012!

As I wasn't signed up for the workshops today, I went back to the gallery and photographed the entire show. Then, I went gallery hopping in Sonoma and talked at least 2, and maybe more gallery owners/managers into gong into Glen Ellen and checking out OUR show. I figure more galleries taking us seriously can only be a good thing, eh?
By the way, four pieces sold as of this morning. YAY!!!
