All about voluptuous petals, razzle dazzle and shimmer of light and early morning paintings…read about my #artcrushxo for this week, Katrina Linn who is featured on my blog this week. Enjoy!
I’m over the moon excited to have my artwork included in a fun new shop opening soon in downtown Lancaster, PA. It will be called My Aunt Debbie and will be located at 336 N. Queen Street. It will be her studio and a specialty shop featuring adventurous handiwork, talented local makers (that’s me!), and cheerful heirloom textiles. It’s sure to be a fun destination filled with treasures. Oh, and this painting will be on display there along with a few other paintings of mine. Hope you can stop in if you are in the area!
Summer Camp for Artists
One of my very favorite podcasts that I listen to while I’m painting is called Art for Your Ear by Danielle Krysa of The Jealous Curator who interviews/shares the work of talented contemporary artists that “make her jealous” is the best of ways. Secretly I’d love to someday be one of those artists, but don’t tell anyone … yet. Anyway, this summer she has created a summer camp for artists. Of course I just knew I had to find the time to participate in this one!
#afyecamp, is fllled with art projects, new friends and gossip. So this was the first week and it was all about Instagram-a-Day: Take one photo each day, every day for the next week … with a camp theme of course! This weeks prompts are: vintage, wood, make, blue, boat, nature and snacks.
So here are a few of my posts for the week. It’s going to be a great, creative and fun summer, no doubt!
On First Friday, June 2, 2017, several pieces of my artwork will be on display at the shoppes at AK Interiors at 246 West Orange Street, Lancaster, PA 17603. It’s a super cute boutique filled with home furnishings, custom art. accessories and unique gifts.
I will be there from 7-9 so please stop in and say hi if you are in town for First Friday.
Artospective is a small community of artists from Jaipur, India who curate the work of modern artists from different genres of art all in one place to further studies by both art students and art lovers. They recently reached out to me to be featured on their blog. You can see my story here.
Mark your calendar! On May 5th I will be at Seasons Olive Oil & Vinegar Taproom in downtown Lancaster for First Friday showing my work from 7:30-9:00. And then I will be back the next day to do a painting demonstration during Lancaster ArtWalk from 11:00-1:00. Any suggestions on what you think I should paint as my demo? I sure hope, if you are in the area, you stop in to say hi.
As my gift to you, and to show my gratitude for supporting my art I created a screensaver/wallpaper image of my cardinal painting to brighten your day. Just download the image and make it your screensaver or wallpaper on your desktop. If you enjoy it, please send me a photo of your computer screen. I would love to see it!
