The cats and I have been BUSY in the studio! Which is to say, I'm super busy getting ready for all the fall events I'll be participating in, such as the LOCAL 14 show posted above, and the cats have been jockeying for position on my lap every time I sit down!
Here is the line up for fall shows:
The Corvallis Fall Festival THIS MONTH, September 28th and 29th
The LOCAL 14 Show, Oct. 3 - 6, at the Forestry Center in Portland
Day of the Dead Show at Guardino Gallery in Portland
The Celebration of Craftswomen Show, Nov. 9-11 in San Francisco
Salem Art Association Holiday Show at the Bush Barn Art Center, Salem
And keeping my fingers crossed for Crafty Wonderland Super Colossal Holiday Sale, Dec. 14th and 15th in Portland, and one other holiday show in Portland. YIKES!
Plus I need to make some ATC's, and I'll be taking classes at Art & Soul October 1-4, AND going to Mexico Oct. 15-Nov3. Double YIKES!
THAT'S why things are hustle bustle in the studio!!! Here's a little peek at what's going on.
One mixed media painting. This is a wip photo, but it's actually finished now.
Can you guess what these will be? If you said gnome Santas, you're right!
Welcome to the doll factory. These have been stitched, stuffed, and primed with gesso.
These three have had their base coat of paint applied. They will be catrina dolls.
Some Fridas in waiting.
Some miscellaneous characters. You might recognize the one on the far right, just from the hairstyle!
Two more catrinas. Face paint ready, now they just need arms, legs, and clothes!
And some other peculiar characters, two in search of a good hair day.
