My Olympic Connection

As I originally posted here, in 2006 I was asked to create a mirror of positive affirmation for Jenn Heil. She was heading to the Torino Olympic games representing Canada in her sport, freestyle women's moguls. I was told her mirror was with her in Canada House as she readied herself for her competition and then she won gold.

Here it is 4 years later and she's in Vancouver at the 2010 Olympic Games as the defending champion. Her final is scheduled for 7:30 PST tonight. But, I just heard Vancouver is under a heavy rain warning: 50-90mm of rain expected an already they've rescheduled some events. Snow making machines and airlifting snow by helicopter is futile against rainy downpours. I can only imagine how much delays fray the nerves of competitors. My thoughts are with you Jenn.

You go Girl!

It's that time of year again.

Proof Studio Gallery is hosting the 2010 Year of the Tiger Print Exhibition. Printmakers from all over the world have submitted their interpretations of Year of the Tiger. These prints will be displayed in Toronto at Proof Studio, in Muskoka, at OCAD and at the Ottawa School of Art.

Man Eating Tiger Lino Relief Print with Chine Colle 10" x 12"

This is my print based on a news story I read in December about a man eating what may have been the last wild Indonesian tiger. I just couldn't shake this story especially with it being the year of the tiger.
