I've been feeling very inspired and artsy as of late from meeting up with some creative types, and as a result, have been taking advantage of it. Stayed up a couple nights ago until 4am to design a poster for an art show I'll be partaking in soon. The first weekend in August, I'll be showing and selling my stuff at the Bainbridge Art Expo and Music Fest. I've never attended, but it's a big local gig and sounds very promising. Looking at the handful of other somewhat-traditional artists accepted, I'm gonna really stand-out which makes me very excited indeed. Maybe I'll be able to pull all those crazy, hip art cats out of the woodworks around here. You know, spice up life a wee bit. Give the young art scene a push, if you will.
I see the coffee is kicking in.
Anyway, I'll discuss details about the show at a later date once it gets closer so any of you hip and local Puget Sounders can come and hang out if you'd like.
This brings me to an important bit:
A) The next online shop update has been decided upon! Finally! Come Friday, May 30th at 11am PST (2pm EST) I'll load up the shop with some new paintings, prints, and all those little ceramic wall plaques. Hoorah!
A couple of painting sneak peeks:
This one I finished a couple nights ago (approx 5x7") and has a background composed of collaged vintage stamps. As previously discussed, I'm loving slugs at the moment. It's funny. This piece was originally going to be so much more complex, but came out far simpler and I really love that.
And this one, while not new (painted last year), will be listed as well. I'm ready to see it go off to a new home (though I do love seeing it on this wall).
There's a few others as well that I'll keep in the dark until next week.I'm off to do more sketching and painting (image above is from my current sketchbook). Happy Tuesday, guys!
