I've been woefully negligent in updating this website. There have been enough artsy things going on in my life to warrant writing about, but I haven't been focusing on art all that much and therefore writing about it has fallen off my priority list. 2018 is already half over and I feel like I should at least attempt to recap:
Now that I type it all out it may seem disingenuous to say I haven't been focusing on art. I am trying to stay involved, but I unfortunately have been vary lax in creating new art - only managed to finish one new painting in time for the LAA spring show (which is now among the 5 at the PCCA Art Market.) I'm still struggling with art storage space and organization, and have just not been keen on adding to the already overwhelming volume of stuff inhabiting my house. Plus I've been on a crochet tangent lately, but I'm done now, really I am - today I finally put the yarn away.
The good news is, I did make some progress in unloading a few older pieces - one gift, one donation, and several sales. I had my best Art on Nepessing results yet - 4 small framed & 1 unframed mixed media pieces sold! Along with a purse and 16 little crochet characters. Most importantly, I sold art! And then I sold 3 (and more crochet critters) at Shiawassee River Fest. A total of 10 art pieces gone! Even though they were all smaller work, it all helps.
Now I'm preparing for another new experience: teaching a 4-session acrylic painting class for kids. It starts July 12 and runs for 4 consecutive Thursdays, 2 hours each session. I will be doing another Imagination Uncorked in August (subject yet to be determined), and plan to participate in Imlay City's Art in the Rough again in September.
That's all for now. Thanks for reading :)
