Spring Buzz

So many events so little time! Exhibition, spring cleaning, meetings, being stuck in traffic- when d I get to make some art. There are so many exciting things going on right now.

I got asked to do a show at Patriots Landing, which is a retirement community here is Dupont. They have a lobby area with empty walls and no art to put up. I got a couple of other artists together and the reception will be on April 25th. I first thought I could make some new non-shocking work, but now realize, that it's not going to happen with everything else going on. I did finish two presentable pieces, the black horse drawings, that I have ready frames for. If I can handle it, it would be nice to have a couple more new drawings, since I have a lot of frames from an old project that I never intend to show again. We are also doing a spring botox for the gallery- sprucing it up a bit. We finished painting the walls, and half the floor, and by the end of the week it should be mostly done. We had a good time, I put some photos on flickr, click on the picture below to see those. The next show goes up next week, with reception on friday, I'm sad it'll be the same night as the reception at Patriot's Landing, so I can't make it to both. Tomorrow I am going to TCC where I am signed up for the independent printmaking class, to teach one of the other independent students about etching aquatints with chinamarkers. That should be fun. Maybe I'll try to take some photos about it. It's been a week since I last made it down there... I am working on a new plate, which I am not sure how it will look. I guess I'm in a transitional phase, where I'm not sure how the art is going to look yet. I do have a theme though. It's been on my mind for years, and I am finally getting it on paper! More on that later.
