    Donovan Bergman, Customer Representative with Friesens, presented publisher Jamis Paulson and myself yesterday with a plaque commemorating the PIA Award received earlier this summer for the printing of the book ‘Prairie and Beyond’. The book placed third in the category ‘art books’ among thousands of entries submitted from across North America in the 2012 annual Premier Print Award Competition. It's a wonderful tribute to the quality and workmanship exhibited by the collaboration of an artist (yours truly), a publisher (Turnstone Press) and a printer (Friesens). The plaque will be proudly displayed at The Canadian Gallery.

    "The Premier Print Award goes to those firms who demonstrate a unique ability to create visual masterpieces. Chosen from thousands of entries, each represents the unique partnership between designer and printer, need and creativity, technology and craft".

    It seems that I am often chasing the sun. I expected a clear sky this morning according to the forecast but, as is often the case, it was mostly cloudy. However, I noticed a sliver of clear sky in the east just above horizon. I suspected that there might be an opportunity for a few minutes of intense light. I hopped in the van and drove about 15 minutes in an easterly direction before the sun lit up the clouds. It only lasted for a few minutes but it was all worth it.
