Another Art Show

So, even more excitement because I’m accepted into another art show, at Tannery Row Artist Colony. Tannery Row is in Buford and is a wonderful place to visit with many great artists. The piece below is the one that was accepted and the reception is next Saturday night at 5 pm. Who wants to go with me? 😀

An Art Show

I’m super excited to get to participate in the SAAG National Juried Art Show being held in Blue Ridge. The opening reception is Saturday, October 7th from 5 to 7 pm. Holler if you’d like to join us. I’m really looking forward seeing all the other amazing artwork that will be on display.

These are the three pieces I submitted and were accepted.

A Little Collage

Today I got to spend the day with a good friend, talking, laughing, and creating a little. My friend Ann recently went to an art retreat centered around calligraphy and created some pendants with paper. She showed me how she made them and let me dive into her jar of paper scraps to make my own. I'm definitely going to make some more with gelli scraps. Here are the two that I made today, first the back, then the front.

Collages

I don't spend as much time as I'd like in my art studio but snagged some time Saturday with one of my besties.

Played with a simple monotype abstract,



And started a mixed media piece,










and when stuck, started making small 5x7 collages with deli paper monotypes. I'm still trying to decide if I want to add a word to each. Hm...

Trying new things...

Last month I read an article on Artists Network by Tonia Jenny on making cool bowls with paper clay. About once a month I have an art play date with my friend Ann and last month we made the bowls but we had to let them are dry for over a week so today we finished painting them. Had a bit of trial and error with the colors but I like the end results.

Art play time...

So you know when you keep playing and making gel prints and start running out of places to stash them all? Means it's time to start collaging to use some up.

Here is one collage that also included some magazine paper and a bit of a cardboard coffee sleeve.



And here is one that is mostly gel prints on various papers including deli paper and then some snippets of paper I made with string and craft tissue.


Haven't figured out what to name them yet.
