After the glow of November’s show, I was thrilled to have a double decker of awesome to keep the momentum rolling in December.
It was my first time to participate in two annual art shows benefitting two of my favorite local ‘hoods: the 4x4 show for The Paseo where my current gallery is located and the 6x6 show benefitting The Plaza District. (Shout out to Plaza Director Cayla for being so awesome to work with!!)
Another first for me was the opportunity to work on canvas and in smaller, more constrained spaces than most of my recent paper work. I did a little research online and at the library to delve into how other artists used watercolor on canvas and discovered Daniel Smith Watercolor Grounds, which has since come to be a staple in the studio. (Unexpected new love: watercolor grounds on cardboard. Stay tuned.)
I really loved the exercise of creating something in new parameters, delivering on deadline, and getting to hang along side so many fellow local artists, many of whom I admire so much. The fact that both pieces sold (thank you, OKC!!!) AND raised money for beloved local organizations doing so much to connect all of us was a massive added bonus.
I love this city, and I love these ‘hoods. Here’s to many more.
You can currently buy my work at In Your Eye Gallery in The Paseo next door to The Other Rom & The Picasso Cafe. The gallery is open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from noon to 5, First Fridays from 5-10 PM, and by appointment. Just drop me a line!
Online store on this site and selling directly on Instagram coming soon. PROMISE.
