Since I moved into the studio in December, I have been spending as much time as I possibly can in there. I love it so much in there. It's just a magical place where I can get really quiet, or listen to my music really loud, and just be with all my painting gear, etc. and go deep...... The results of all that time spent in there are a few new completed paintings that I am really happy with, plus the start of a really cool new series project. ( More about that in a later post....) .
Those completed paintings, (along with a couple older ones) are going up at Walter's Cafe in Ballard for the month of August. Walter's is located at 6408 32nd Ave NW- Seattle, WA 98107. We will be having an opening there on Friday, August 3rd 6-8pm. It's a funky neighborhood place that serves great coffee, ice cream, beer etc. It's tiny, but we can take over the sidewalk, like we did last year. Come on by and say hi! I am really grateful to have the opportunity to share my work at Walter's again this year.
Also - Save the date. I will be participating in the Tacoma Studio Tour on 10/13 and 10/14 as part of Tacoma Arts Month. I am really excited, but I don't have too many details yet. I will be posting more, as I learn more. Come out and see my studio, plus many other great artist's studios all over Tacoma.
Below are progress photos and the finished painting titled 14 Kids. It is acrylic on an old board. 24.5" x 20.5"
