Things said at Stop #182- the 2nd day.
“I love your use of color.
Wow, these are so lovely and colorful.
I see so many different things in your paintings.
This one reminds me of the blue paintings by Yves Klein.
This reminds me of ‘Waterlilies” by Monet.
This makes me think of Georgia O’Keefe.
I’m looking for 182!
I saw this painting in the catalog and had to see your work in person.
I don’t remember seeing your stuff last year. It must mean you’ve really grown as an artist.”
I was here. And so was my painting Sweet Willow.
I also hung most of my recent paintings in a one night show. No sales but a learning experience. Nothing like being set up next to a wall of erotic art. Thankfully, I had decided to leave the kiddos at home.
And coming up this Friday...I'll have one piece in the WEST Raising Artists Exhibition. Opening night 5/8 and showing through 5/16. This is very exciting. I really admire this organization and hope to do more with them in the future. Also, I hadn't planned on doing WEST (the spring version of EAST) but I can still say I was a participant!
I was also lucky enough through generousart.org to be working with an Artist mentor. I've been so excited about this!!! We've only met once but it was an amazing experience and I can't wait to blog more about what I've learned from a successful artist. Ok...off to bed. Tomorrow is a new day to make art.
So a few weeks ago I participated in a one night show hosted by a local architect firm Studio 8. A hoard of my family and friends showed up to support me as well as partake in free food, drink and live music. My dad was most impressed by the musician's ability to play the tambourine with his feet!
This was a nice kick off to my upcoming EAST show with my fellow studio mate Cecily. I'm trying to force myself to be organized. It's HARD to do!
Here are a few pics of the show set up and the happiness that ensued...
