#91 Fat Bike, Canada 150 paintings by Natasa Vretenar

The most important thing in Canada is to embrace the winter. After living in the American Southwest for most of my life, it was a big change to live in Edmonton. We have winter for 8 months or so. One really has to learn to enjoy winter activities, and one of them is riding a bike in the winter time.

Here is the link for the interview about my 150 Canada paintings project. I was quite nervous waiting for it to air :). It is quite an exciting thing to do - a TV interview!

#89 Oil Pump, Canada 150 paintings by Natasa Vretenar

Today was a productive day in Natasaville. I did my first ever interview for the TV station. CTV Edmonton reporter Dez Melenka and a cameraman came over to record my work I am doing for Canada 150 project! I was initially terrified when Dez contacted me, and had to wait a bit to respond to her regarding the interview. I have never been on a TV news segment before! So, what do I do? I set up time to do it of course! 
Basically they came over and let me just talk about the project in my own words. I cannot wait to see it when it airs tomorrow at 6 pm. If you are reading this and have time at 6 pm, check out http://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/on-your-street.  Prime time baby!
Seriously though, I was way out of my comfort zone, but I did it and feel great about it! Dez found me on Make Something Edmonton website https://www.makesomethingedmonton.ca/ where my Canada 150 paintings is one of the featured projects on the front page! Here is a link to my project https://www.makesomethingedmonton.ca/projects/1532-canada-150-paintings-by-natasa-vretenar-edmonton-a/
