The art opening on Wednesday went well. Jason, my spouse-guy, was a big help in greeting our friends and he also took pictures. It's great to have a friend helping out, and this opening was easier than usual because Jeanne, my mentor, and Maurice Henri, the Library Gallery Dealer made for a super team.
Florine Leblanc from Women in Business spoke about their new mentorship program for local businesses. She was the one that introduced Jeanne and I, and got the idea to start this program based on our mentorship experience.
Another highlight was City Councillor, Nancy Hoar, representing the city and speaking about the importance of the arts to Moncton. She brought out some of the concrete ways that the city has invested in the arts.
I'm still resting today, but have kept up with art every day. I have a Julia Cameron coloring book that has been fun to use and I started a forgotten art journal practice I'd meant to do this year. More on that later.
