28 Jan Demo in Calgary

Thanks to everyone who came to the demo in Calgary on January 16th and packed out the place!  Leah and I had a lot of fun and enjoyed seeing many good friends.  A big thanks to Doug and everyone at Swinton’s Art Supply.

We opened the floor to anyone who wanted to put in a name for the painting and got over 50 unique ideas! Here are just a few:

– Looking for Ansers (anser is latin for goose) – very clever!
– Bugger off, she’s mine!
– A couple of quacks
– Goosed again
– Checking out the chick
– I’m a honkytonk man
