I’m so excited to announce some sales of my work coming up! Look for a second post about my fine art sales happening this weekend, and next weekend (May 3rd) my Darwin plushes and cards will be selling at the Mass Art Spring Sale! I am so excited my work was picked for the sale.
I’m creating a Darwin “Look Book”, a short introduction for those who don’t know this pup, to sell with the plush toys. These are some of the images I created for the book:
Let me know in the comments if you have favorites!!
You are not allowed to take pictures at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. I oh so loved the beautiful courtyard, which was decorated for Spring, and though how lovely it would be to come back sometime with my sketchbook and paints. I don’t know if I’ll be allowed to paint in there, but I wish I could. Anyways, this is how I felt when I was there. It’s one of the most magical places in Boston.
I am doing a MAJOR update on my website, where my blog post images are the highlight of the front page of my website. This will keep you up to date on the latest things I am making, whether it is painting, drawing, knitting, collage, or moments from teaching.
I realized though that this wonderful sketch of Darwin, created in November 2013, has yet to grace the internets. Here he is!
At the beginning of December, I enjoyed an intimate quartet concert at a friend’s apartment. I was thrilled to be able to paint the musicians while they played. The observation experience parallels the observation experience I had during last semester at Mass Art in my Art Education program.
I was transfixed by the immediacy of the performance, and the intensity of the songs and musicians. These four images are my results.
You can also find these images, plus an artist book, and more paintings, on my Fine Art portfolio page!
Today is Election Day. Which means please PLEASE PLEASE go vote! Don’t know who to vote for? Well, there’s always Bo. Trust me, when the results start pouring in, and nerves are high, you may wanna switch over to Cute Animals on Animal Planet later tonight. (Or now, via this live cam of cute kittens).
I did NOT lose power. No drama, no tragedies here for me in Brookline. In fact, we had such a low percentage of power outages. The same does not go true for my family in Long Island, and for them I feel terrible, and wish that the power comes back as soon as possible.
Since I did not go to work in the office, I had some downtime to reconnect with Darwin a little bit. I had quite a good time putting him in some raincoats and the like. Here are the results:
