it's taken me a few days to gather my thoughts about my 4 day trip to halifax and get caught up with what i left at home. every time i leave the island i come back richer. i absolutely love travel and would do a lot more of it if i could afford it. 
for 2 of the days i basically didn't leave the hotel/convention centre. 

i had 3 of my new paintings hanging in the gallery@acts (part of the atlantic craft trade show). mornings were spent at presentations by 5 gallery owners/museum curators from across canada and one from new york city. and in the afternoons we had the opportunity to meet one on one with them for critiques of our work and more information gathering. with all of their combined experience, i came away with some rare nuggets to think about.
the rest of the time i ate wonderful food. visited art galleries and shops. and wandered.
