#131 Train, Canada 150 paintings by Natasa Vretenar

In addition to working on my #canada150 project, I am continuously working on writing proposals for new exhibits and a few grants that are available out there. I have gotten better at it but it is still not my thing. It takes me forever to write up something. Since English is my second language, there are always issues with writing and articulating what I really want to say. 
I am also working on making a video for the application for the Coast to Coast expedition - they are looking for visual artist to join the crew and travel throughout Canada. I am hoping to get picked for the NW leg of the expedition. 

#130 The Perfect Snowman, Canada 150 paintings by Natasa Vretenar

I think I will never grow up - I love going out there with my kids and play in the snow. Once I overheard someone scolding their child and saying that their snowman is not perfect, because it was crooked a bit and eyes were not aligned "properly". It really made me upset, because I truly believe that every snowman is a perfect snowman.

#95 Grain Silo, Canada 150 paintings by Natasa Vretenar

Alberta iconic landscape with a grain silo. More of them are disappearing as the newer, modern ones replace the old wooden ones.

#94 Aurora, Canada 150 paintings by Natasa Vretenar

This is one of the most beautiful natural phenomena in Canada. I was able to see it on several occasions right here in town in Edmonton.

#93 Maple Syrup, Canada 150 paintings by Natasa Vretenar

I must admit we did not use much maple syrup before coming to live in Canada! That stuff is good. I use it to sweeten things I bake and of course, we apply generous quantities of it on our pancakes.
