Nuit Blanche 2012

Last night there was a free art festival in Toronto, Ontario from 7pm to 7am called Nuit Blanche.  It was completely free, including free coffee and free water, too!  There were over 100 art installations all over the city of Toronto, and tonnnns of people.  I was so impressed at how smooth it ran, how creative it was, and how many people came out!  I feel like only a city like Toronto can do something like it. Maybe one day I can have a piece there!

Here's some photos from the festival, if you have time, check it this year's artists!

New Murals!

I just spent a few days with a wonderful family in Scarsdale, NY while I was painting two rooms for twins {again}! Haha.  The girl's room was a ballerina theme, so I painted a decorative bow above her bed, and the boy's room is sports themed, so I painted a scoreboard above his bed.  The paint on the top of the scoreboard and below the Home and Guest titles is chalkboard paint, so he can keep score when he and his friends play on his mini hoop in the room! So fun and interactive!
