Our Local Artist Friends

We are back from another long but fun day at the World Masters.  There were a lot of new athletes arriving all day and spoke to many new people from all over the world.  There was plenty of activity and  a TV was even set up so we could all take in the Olympic Hockey game to watch Canada win.

Our booth is together with a local art gallery and 2 other artists from our area that we car pool with each day.

This is our good friend Rosemarie Foster weaving some pine needle baskets and her beautiful paintings and other artworks.  You can see more of her artwork on her website here.

Our other friend is Judy MacKenzie who is another very talented painter.  She mainly paints scenes of Chase, Kamloops and surrounding areas which you can see displayed in her booth.  I love the wooden boxes that her husband makes and the scenes Judy paints on them.  She has a website as well and you can find it here.

After speaking with some of the athletes, we found out that many compete year round, all over the world, in both indoor and outdoor competitions.

The opening ceremonies was today and the competition begins tomorrow so we hope to take in as many events as we can.
