Happy Thanksgiving

In the spirt of Thanksgiving I created a list of what I am grateful for.  In no particular order, I am thankful for:
1) Supportive family and friends.
2) My revitalized attitude towards health, exercise, and nutrition.
3) Collectors of my work.
4) Discovering what I am passionate about and learning more about myself so that I can put it on canvas.
5) Incredibly convenient and affordable studio space.
6) Being able to do what I love.
7) Last, but the most important, my amazing husband.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday.  Thanks for reading.


The WOW factor.

I know, I know, I know.  You have to spend money to make money.  But it's really hard to spend it when I just don't have it.  In my visual world I think it is important to have a great logo and other marketing materials, especially because I used to market myself as a designer.  Sooo, I'm working on saving up to collaborate with other creative minds to brainstorm and create an official logo.  I also want to get together a really great portfolio to present to galleries when applying to have my art hung in their space.  I saw this video of a marketing package.  Most likely a designer applying to marketing firms.  But it inspired me to put this kind of effort into creating an amazing introduction of my art.  Maybe it'll inspire you if your looking to present yourself or your business to your customers in a different way.  Or if your a fellow artist, to do something above and beyond to wow the gallery.http://vimeo.com/7558876


Feed & Grain Art Auction and Fundraiser

I've been setting up and decorating at the F & G off and on the last couple weeks for the BBQ & Bluegrass fundraiser.  My task was to decorate the silent auction room with an old general store look.  To see it all together...you'll just have to come check it out and support our efforts to save this old building.

Or you can buy any of the 3 paintings I donated during the art auction from 6-10 pm Saturday, the 7th.  The starting auction bid is about half of the retail value of the work.

Saturday Nov. 7th, 6-10 pm, Feed & Grain


Broccoli Kickin' Cancer's Butt!

I might have been a little mean when I told my husband, James, his idea was stupid.  I felt so guilty that I drew it for him.  Here's the page from my sketch book.
Hopefully I'll come up with some way to incorporate a message of prevention into my work.  Still brainstorming...any ideas?  I promise I'll be nice.
