Wow. I was overwhelmed with joy. Thank you the Minister Of Culture, Minister Fir @tanyafirab, and her team, Art Branch/AFA team, Jubilee team who attended and supported my private tour for the Alberta Old Buildings solo art exhibition at @jubilee_ab yesterday . I didn`t expect that many people participating, definitely it was a happy surprise. Alot of good conversation about my paintings and project vision and ideas, it means a lot to me ❤️ God bless 🙏
Magical moment. 2008 September 25, I was only 8 months new in Canada, finished this "Spring Manor" inspired by East Elevation of the Alberta Government House. I was newlyweds and still carried Visitor status when my Permanent Residence under processing. The Canadian citizenship completed in 2012.
Time is magical.
Could I ever thought this painting united with the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta after 15 years?
By the way, thank you to my husband for his never ending support for my art journey. Without him I will never ever started painting. ...
My greatest pleasure met with Lieutenant Governor of Alberta, Her Honour Salma Lakhani. Having an opportunity to introduce the Alberta Old Buildings series`s purpose and meaning between people, arts and heritage. Thank you for her honor so patience to listen of each painting story.
It was a magical moment when the 19th Lieutenant Governor of Alberta besides my painting "1913 Alberta Government House" the 1st to 6th Alberta Governor Residences. @lgalberta
Especially thank you Lieutenant (N) Jason Finkbeiner, Gerry @jubilee_ab , and Aaron @ab_artistinresidence assisted the visiting it ran so smoothly 😁

Couples weeks ago I attended @erikagermainart open studio at @artshabitatyeg and I written down " Love , Peace" for exchange Erika `s monoprint painting.
I am really like her ritual of exchange ideas that public to participate in a social practice-based artwork in her artist-in-residence.
Stepping in the McLuhan House Garage Studio that my 2 years old memory are flashinf back. It was the best miracle for me during the COVID 2020- 2021. I had a perfect hideout for my 1st creation project ofthe @yegoldhouses .
The biggest blessing is it evoked me to take the advanced approach to write a bigger and more complicated @albertaoldbuildings project for the @ab_artistinresidence during 2022.
Now the McLuhan studio had a shiny new Epoxy floor and fresh white wall. Erika decorated so airy. Good to round up my memory 😁
My honor to meet with the Alberta Minister Of Culture Fir in the Legislature Building to summarize my 2022 Alberta Artist-In-Residence / Art Ambassador @ab_artistinresidence valuable experience and insight.
Thank you the @albertaculture team arranged this meaningful 30 mins in-person meeting. And I am looking forward the Minister Fir @tanyafirab to visit the Alberta Old Buildings art exhibition at @jubilee_ab in near future.
