Art in the Park this past weekend was a huge success, and so much fun! Thanks to everyone who stopped by to see what I was creating. The gallery showing the plein aire pieces created by me and all the other artists involved will be next Monday, 29th at 7:00 PM, at the Rennaissance shopping center on Kingston Pike. I'll be showing this piece and others created at the event, as well as selling some framed work. Hope to see you there!
As the title would suggest, much is happening in Elizabeth-land. First and foremost, the Cedar Bluff mural is complete. Here's a picture, but it's best to view it in its original glory and wonder how I ever managed to paint this while twelve feet off the ground.
Also on the horizon, this Saturday and Sunday I will be part of Art in the Park. I will be stationed at the Campbell Station Park, the one by the library, and there I will draw all weekend, and after a week, there will be a gallery show with the pieces I created there. Everyone is invited to come out and see all the amazing artwork being created. I might even have some swag for those who stop by. :)
I am nearing the end of the Cedar Bluff Orange Leaf mural. The mascots are in place, and all that's left is the topping...on the yogurt, that is. :)
The next Orange Leaf mural is underway at the Cedar Bluff location. The theme? All the mascots of the local area schools enjoying some delicious yogurt. First up? The Hardin Valley hawk.
Toothless has emerged from the fire, and doesn't he look adorable! :) The shiny black glaze came out so rich, he actually melted to the kiln, hence the yellow bricks attached to his feet. Through careful chiseling, perhaps I can eventually free him.
On and off for the past year, I have been interning with illustrator Violet Lemay on her series of Doodle Books from DuoPress. I just got today "Doodle Texas" and "Beach Doodles", the first of her books that I've worked on, as well as her "Chicago Baby" board book. These doodle books are awesome for car/plane/train trips and the creative-thinking kid, I think I may do a little doodling in them myself. I can't wait for the next books I've worked on in the series to come out!
