Well, after close to 9 hours of intense artistic effort it is complete. My banner for the Minden Street Banners Festival is done. In an intimate setting in the backroom of Organic Times, on the Main Street of Minden, artistic contributors work away. It’s a wonderful, supportive environment and to be quite honest, I felt like I was on vacation for a few hours. Nothing to contemplate but the next brush stroke and the next colour.
36, or more, hand painted banners will adorn Bobcaygeon Road this summer … accompanied by many more by local school children. A wonderful way to celebrate summer in the Highlands.
From an artist’s standpoint it makes me wish I was born a little taller. Damn hard reaching those high spots.
