Here are a few photos of the Artists' Reception and Preview Party from last weekend at LiveARTS Bothell. There was quite a crowd in the lobby.
Mister Pelican. When I came back on Sunday after the show to pick up my work, I found out that it had sold!
Ursula Stocke, Josey Wise, Barbara Freeman, Janie Olsen and Eden Hopkins. It was fun meeting up with everyone, all in the same place at the same time. These talented artists all had work in the show.
What I'm Working on Now...
is another graphite and mixed media on film. It has a female figure in the foreground with one of my fantasy trees behind her. I have enclosed the image in a circle and will be adding color on the back side of the film, the border of the circle, her body color and the sphere.
I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do with the central sphere she is holding. I have a lot of ideas but I'll wait to see what she wants to do with it. This drawing has taken a lot longer than I thought it would. The tree is always the easiest part, the figure, not so easy for me. Right now I am making some corrections to the arm and hand. I may add something to the four corners, I haven't decided yet. I like the vision so far. I do have a competition in mind to enter it into if it's finished in time. It may be a long shot as you never know if your work will fit the theme or if the juror will like it. However, when I head about this show, I was inspired to create this new work with that goal in mind. To me the inspiration and creation of the work are what's important! Until next time, thanks for taking the time to read about my work. Enjoy your summer!
