This is another one of my images that I created in my Digital Arts class.
I had so much fun with this one.
It was as if I was creating my own little universe.

Heron DVD Advertisement on YouTube

This past week my daughter and her friend made a YouTube video advertising my Great Blue Heron DVD.
I was very impressed and have hired them for future projects.

Birthday Blast

Yesterday was my 29th birthday all over again.
Okay, it was really the big 40.

The day started out with a surprise in my studio.
The wonderful artists that I am attending school with decorated my desk!
It made me feel loved.
Thank you guys!!
You are the best and I feel lucky to create with you!!

Then I had a Mad Hatters Paint Splattering Ice Cream Sundae Birthday Party.
My awesome friend, Sam Boehner, put it together for me with some help from a few others.
Thank you Sam! for being the bestest friend. 

I wore a tiara.
Of course.

It was held on the beautiful grounds of the Coast Collective Gallery.

We had cake and ice cream.
Everyone brought a topping to share.
And only one person brought chocolate sauce.
There was such a wonderful variety of toppings and flavors.


Pin the mustache on the Dali

Paint Splattering!

It was a great way to celebrate my birthday and being an artist.

To all of those that made it out to my party,
thank you for the wonderful gift of time and art!

Digital Art

Digital Photography

One of my courses while at UVic is Photoshop and Digital Art.
I went into the course knowing the basics of the program but the emphasis of the course is to create artistic images.
It has been fantastic! 
I am discovering a whole new way to express what I envision.
I might have to change the name of my blog to Leslie Redhead Art.

Back To School

I am back at the University of Victoria for the summer working on my Master's of Art Education.
I've been here a week already and have been going like mad since I arrived.
It is good to be back in the thick of things and seeing the creativity ooze around me.
This is my studio at the school.
It is the perfect spot for me.
Right in the corner next to the water.
Even better than my studio at home!
I don't have to move to fill my water buckets.

I have courses this summer and next then I will be done.

Don Javier
poured watercolor

I did this pour several weeks ago as a demonstration but didn't get around to finishing it until recently. 
It is another poured watercolor and is of Ronda, Spain.
I am excited to be returning to Spain so I can take more reference photos!
My workshop is full so if you didn't get a chance to sign up, don't worry. I am sure I will be returning again.

I will be teaching a pouring workshop in Victoria, BC on July 14-15 at the Coast Collective Gallery.
This time I think we will be doing a still life.
For those that are interested in doing a street scene, I will still make that option available.
There is still room left so if you are interested, please contact the Coast Collective Gallery at 
Please click here for more information.
