Some of the winners.

I had very little time to write last night. It was a whirlwind of events and midnight came very quickly. 
I remind myself to focus just a little more by actually sleeping, however its hard with so many wonderful things happening, so here it is 4.00 and I’m readying for the day, a glass of pellegrino water by my side.
A comment made  prompted me to reflect that If we could take the energy stored by the artists (predominantly women) in the ball room last night and also in this industry it would be a force to be reckoned with.
1000’s of people dedicated to the art will descend on the George Brown Convention Centre tomorrow for Festival, 1000’s are already here attending class and Keith and I just love the ambience.

This is all I have time to put up this morning as I sit here in the dark trying not to wake Keith as I type.
The photo below is one of some of the Jewel Pearce Patterson Scholarship winners taken last night.
So the fanfare is over for the evening, the seats are empty and I prepare for a fabulous day.
