Every fall my building puts on a three day event! Over 80 artists, music, food and awesome art! It’s a really neat building to explore with a diverse group of artists. I put a lot of work into getting my gallery into tip top shape showcasing my latest works. It’s a highlight for me to meet you! Love, Love, Love visiting with new and old friends. So hope to see you!! Cheers!
I’m honored to be asked to join the Minneapolis Scout Guide! Winston our dog was the star of the photo shoot!! It will be fun to see how it turns out! Cheers!
Just got these three back from the framers. It’s always fun to see the final product! I panted them randomly, but if you look closely, what do you see? It’s always funny to me to see what kind of life they take on all on their own! Cheers!
It’s a big one, 54 x 76. I was asked today what do I listen to when I paint? Today I have Post Malone to thank! Yes, yes, I listen to Post Malone lol. Lately I put a song on repeat and just “check out”. Today it was the song “Psycho”. Super funny the reaction I got from the person who asked! I joke I can’t understand half the words which cracks me up, but I just really like this song! Thanks Mr. Malone! Cheers! (and ps. the painting looks soooo much better in person!)
These just came back from being stretched. A little bit of everything in this batch!
Thank you to MartinPatrick3 for including my art in their Inspired by Design event! Despite the rain it was a terrific night! Thank you to all who came out. Here is a peek at some of the room vignettes and how they incorporated my paintings. It was super fun to see and what a great job they did! Cheers!
What a fun project the Artisan Home Tour was and how nice to have the living room with my birch over the fireplace in the fall issue of Spaces Magazine. (Advertising for the 2019 Artisan Home Tour) I could not be more thankful to have had the chance to work with such a lovely family who moved into this house! It is truly a splendid home! Cheers!
Thank you to the Carter Avenue Frame shop for so expertly framing this ‘big one’ and then having to rent a van to deliver it! What a GREAT job they do!! (At 58 x 66 it needed it’s own ride! lol) And once here, they installed it! Cheers!
I’m very grateful to be included in MP3’s Inspired By Design event this week! Thank you MP3! If you are in town and want to experience a fun night filled with great design and men’s fashion stop on in! I just heard they are moving the show inside as we are in for a LOT of rain! So fun to have my art included again this year! Cheers!
It's funny as sometimes I "know" and sometimes I am not quite sure...this is one of those times! It will be fun to go back tomorrow an lay the painting out on the floor, as it's so large it drapes the table on both sides, and see it in it's entirety. (Kind of looks like a nice bedspread! lol) I often take progression photos so thought you might enjoy them. I did not however take a photo, which darn, I should have, when it was covered with birch trees. You can get a hint of them still. Depending on what I find tomorrow, I may go back in and add some. I wasn't "feeling" them today but it doesn't mean they might not still show up. Time will tell! And one of these days I'm going to make a painting out of when I apply the paint, I have so much fun tossing it about and making fun shapes with it. I keep meaning to stop and concentrate more on that process as I often see really fun things before I start moving the paint around. This is a big canvas so it took lots of paint. I did however scrape off enough paint to paint another separate painting that I painted in tandem with this one. It's completely different! When I needed a certain color I'd just scrape into the big one and choose colors off of it like it was a big pallet, super fun. Cheers!
Not sure where the woods will take me this fall, but back I go! Wish me luck!! Think I'm going to need it! Cheers!
My find of the day!! I don't have a real Saarinen table but now I have cute fake one that I'm just as happy about! I'm going to have fun working at this table! ;-)
