Artist Appreciation/Book Review – Ian Sheldon

I typically don’t write blog posts about other Artists but Ian Sheldon’s work has been an inspiration to me for a few years.

The way he paints landscapes is amazing and one day I’d love to have one. For now I’ll have to enjoy this book I purchased from his booth at the Whyte Ave Art Walk. The book showcases his work nicely with notes and other writings peppered throughout the book.

Ian Sheldon is a local Edmonton Artist and you can see his bio and work online here at his website. I encourage all landscape lovers to visit his page and check out his work.


Art Advent Calendar

Today is December 1st and that means it’s the start of the Art Advent Calendar. Edmonton’s very own Jay Bigam started this in 2015 and it has been popular ever since. It’s a way to share and enjoy art.

To participate all you have to do is post a picture of your art on twitter with the hashtag #artadventcalendar. If you are an admirer of art you just search #artadventcalendar in twitter. Jay has some simple guidelines for participation here.  Jay is an amazing painter and you can find his website here.

This is the first time I have participated and here is the photograph I decided to use for Day 1.






Have a good Day 🙂
