Water Valley Days

2 Comments

Last weekend Water Valley AB celebrated its annual Water Valley Days.

The event kicked off with a parade. It’s not a big parade but folks don’t seem to mind. It’s filled with horses and young riders, floats promoting lawn tractor races and a music jam later that afternoon, clowns and old cars and whatever else happens to drive by. In short, a lovely cameo of life in rural Alberta.

The day also included a series of demonstrations by several artists, me included. Painter and bronze artist Lesley Wolf displayed some of her work and explained how she goes from lumps of clay to finished statues.

Diana Steer demonstrated an intriguing aspect of her art — painting on feathers.

Several painters, a scrapbooker and another jeweler were also there. It was a wonderful chance for people to see artists at work and to talk to them about their art. A relaxing way to spend a warm summer day.

Beads? What can I say — they snuck up on me when I wasn't looking. Now I'm hooked.
