Spring cleaning

The new hubby and I have been doing some spring cleaning last couple weekends… Swapped the main room around, so now the art and computer space is much larger… And the living room/lounge area is much cooler… Hoping to get back to work on some new fiber arts/art quilt pieces and painting very soon.. ! Plus we will have space to set out the large table and have guests over for creative night, games, dinner, etc. Getting excited!

And Another Thing! Love The Underground Show

I also just took on vending, and possibly doing some live painting, at the Love The Underground Show which is taking place the evening of Feb. 15th in Portland. There will be an awesome lineup of DJ’s for dance music, other art and crafts/small supplier vendors, aerial dancers, and more at this event. Presale tickets for $10 are available for a limited time! I’ve been to a Mo’Pro event before and I’m all excited about this one now! Go here to learn more about this event and get your tickets before presales are gone.


New Era, New Studio

2013 art studio

Greetings, all. After an unexpected series of life events (emergency move, health issues, etc.) I have settled in a new spot and just finished restoring my art studio in the Portland Metro area. Still a bit rough around the edges, but it is all set to focus down on drawing, painting, mixed media and fiber arts/embellishment work. I’m excited to get started again.


Tonight: Love Show Opening Night

I hope to see you there tonight! I plan on being at the opening a little earlier (7pm)… If not then you can visit my artwork @ the show anytime for the next month.


Dreams show Oct. 3rd @ Launchpad Gallery

 

The above piece is not new, but it’s received a new context by my decision to enter it into the Dreams show, this coming month at Launchpad Gallery.

I felt it matched the show theme as the portrait depicts a young man I had originally dreamed about, but had not met, in a location I had never been to (England). Later that year, I did go to that place and I met him. The interaction that followed resulted in this piece. (And yes, he really did have that amazing hair!)

If you get a chance to come out to the opening, please do as the piece is in a spiffy new frame and looks awesome in person. The Web cannot do it justice.

“Dreams” opening night, First Friday, October 3, 6:00pm-???
