Happy Chinese Lunar New Year.🎊🐰🥕 祝大家身心康泰！ My doghter Amber would love to greet you all as well 🐾 Traditionally, Chinese will buy fresh flowers like Narcissus, Gladiolus to decorate their home. Since, I am non traditional person, I bought embroidery flowers 🌺 instead from talented embroider @byalyploof . Now her embroidery and my ink pen sketch "Nova Scotia Lighthouse" are enlightening my bare wall 💓
2022, is our 15 years anniversary. This little portrait is called "All about love". Since I rarely done any portrait painting, it was full of hairlious moment from start to begin. In the early stage, they are looks like a Simpsons characters than anything.
Honestly, even the finished portraits is not fully look like us. I made myself have bigger 👀 eyes and difficult nose shape. And my hubby 's tummy was smaller 🤣 He said the only thing he could recognize is his T-shirt. Now you know, you can't truly believe all the olden days Queens and Kings portraits are reflective their true form, if artists want to live.👍🏻
At last, I want to thank you my hubby and my Lord Jesus Christ gave me abundance 2022. The one of kind art journey from to be the Alberta AIR @ab_artistinresidence , approved my project - Alberta Old Buildings @albertaoldbuildings to meet so many amazing people who works on the front or behind the scenes to support Alberta Arts.

Art Gallery Of Grande Prairie @artgalleryofgp is the most northern Alberta public art gallery I have never been, 450km away from Edmonton. Also, it is my last private tour of the end my Alberta Artist In Residence/ Art Ambassador program.
Melanie is a wonderful hostress, especially taught me the history and transformation from the historical 1929 high school to the one of the biggest art gallery in Alberta. I was so shocked to know the devastated situation back to 2007 one of the building wing was fully collapsed because of the heavy snow.
With the support of provincial and federal heritage @cdn.heritage funding were able to reconstruct a contemporary art gallery inside but keeps the historical school at the front exterior! The grand opening was September 2012.
Because of the fascinating story and how important of historic preservation. I am thinking to add it to my original Alberta Old Building 🏫 series @albertaoldbuildings
