Alberta Bouquet -LT GOVERNOR Of ALBERTA ARTS AWARDS Mural Mosaic

This YouTube Video shows each individual tile involved in the Mural Mosaic - ALBERTA BOUQUET - can you see mine.....I'll give you a's in the blue/green tone and it's a beach scene....

I feel very fortunate as an artist to live in St. Albert.  We have a very rich artist community and part of our community are two of our most well known artists, Lewis Lavoie and Phil Alain. I have had the privilege along with my fellow guild members to participate in their latest Mural Mosaic creation. Over 120 Alberta artists ranging from children to seniors and from amateur artists to professional artists helped create ALBERTA BOUQUET for the Lt Governor Generals Arts awards.

This beautiful mural mosaic was unveiled on the evening of Tuesday, April 5th at a private Mural Mosaic unveiling. The mural will be presented at the Lt. Governor General Awards Ceremony on Saturday, April 9th.  The painting will be disassembled and each tile and a copy of the painting will be presented to each dignitary at this special event.  They will receive, as Lewis Lavoie termed a "Limited Edition Original".

This beautiful piece of art is a Mural Mosaic made of many small individual tiles that are pieces of art within themselves.  Each artist was allowed to paint at least one tile during a 2 hour session.  That was a little bit nerve wracking on my part, never having done this before and having nothing for reference.  But I found it to be a wonderful experience, and I am in awe of the talent of these two wonderful artists.  For more information on Lewis and Phil or the Mural Mosaics please visit  or

Getting a little press never hurts!
