Edmonton's 2008 Wild Backyard Calendar Lauch

Yesterday we attended Miranda's calendar launch at the John Janzen Nature Centre (previous Calendar blogpost)

The weather was LOVELY and we gathered outside in the sun as there was a congratulatory message for the artists. Then the gallery was opened so we could view the original art pieces. The artists were asked for autographs and they took questions and praise about their work. As a first prize winner, Miranda's painting was framed, with a gold plate displaying her painting's name, and her name. After, she posed for pictures with the animals on display, got an airbrushed dolphin tattoo, and went to the basement to do some sketching. She sketched a duck and coloured it with pastels. We sat on a picnic table and Miranda looked at this fun rock kit Baba bought for her from the giftshop. pictures
