Art on Rain Barrels

I had a lot of fun last Saturday night at the Summer Lights Festival in downtown Kitchener. The festival was awesome in many ways, but mostly because I had my paintbrush in hand and was decorating a rain barrel for REEP (my former employer!).

I was a little nervous leading up to it because I had only 1 hour to complete the painting – in public – on King Street.

I really enjoyed it, though, and I’m happy with the result! Four other artists were part of the event, which was a fundraiser. All of the barrels are being auctioned off, and if anyone bids more than $250 they will get a free installation by REEP.
