Upcoming Body Painting Competition: Birds of Lac-Saint-Pierre

I am very excited about the upcoming body painting competition in Trois-Rivières, QC. This saturday, March 17th, the wild life artist group, PEGHB, that works in support of Lac-Saint-Pierre, the world's largest wetland reservation as recognized by UNESCO, will be holding their annual group art exhibition; "L'Eco Salon".

They are still accepting last minute entries into the body painting competition. You can see the registration form here: . For any beginners, or experienced body painter, this is a great opportunity to challenge yourself.

I really believe that body painting competitions, if approached with the right atittude, can be a very healthy growing process for any artist. The competition isn't really with the other artists, it's really between you & yourself. It's the challenge to get the body entirely covered in art in the thematic of the competition (this year it is Birds of Lac-Saint-Pierre), eat as you need to, and get the hair completed in 6 hours. This is not alot of time to paint a person from head to foot, especially if that person is tall!

By the end of the competition, I start to feel more like the artists around me are company for the journey, a shared experience that is at the same time very personal. It's beautiful and I cannot help but sit back and look in awe at all the amazing art I am surrounded by.
