As to what I have planned for the near future? Right now I am working on a small acrylic painting, 6" x 6", for a show called, "Art of the Garden". "It's art work to enhance the garden or to bring the garden into the home." I don't know if it will get in the show, but it's a good opportunity to do something different than I would normally do, or haven't done in awhile. Also, I like to participate in local shows. I only wish I had more time to do two paintings. Isn't that always the problem, so many things to do, so little time to do them?
Next week I'll be hearing from two festivals I've entered. The acceptance letters go out for the Edmonds Art Festival starting on the 17th and LiveARTS Bothell on the 19th. I'll have much more to say about the two show when I find out and when the festivals get closer.
The next several projects I have in mind are... I want to do a Fathers' Day painting for my Dad and Dad-in-Law. I only need to come up with the design and do two in time for shipping!! After that there are two other shows that I want to do new work for, the Lynnwood Library Gallery Show and competition called, "Green" and the "Arts of the Terrace" Arts Festival in Mountlake Terrace. Both shows are in late September, however the Lynnwood show's deadline is July 31. For the Lynnwood show I want to do either a silverpoint landscape, or a graphite on film work. They will both be normal sized drawings. The Mountlake Terrace show has in addition to regular categories, also a miniature art category. I would like to submit work to both, drawing and miniature categories.
So as well as keeping up with this blog in documenting my work, I'll be creating the new works and attending the shows and receptions. I think I'll have enough to keep me busy! So, as always thanks for taking the time to read this.
