Children's Art Class

I taught an art class for children last week at the gallery. I haven't done that in years and for three years my daughter kept telling me to. The local newspaper came out and took photos. Here is the link to the slideshow.

June Art Crawl

We had a wonderful art crawl last week. We had a steady stream of visitors in the gallery. I tried to sneak away to visit a neighboring gallery and ran into some old friends who came out for their first art crawl. It was awesome!

The artists at Mystic Art Gallery went with a summer theme for the crawl, and did their own spin on flamingo art. We had everything from feathers abstract art to trailer-trash flamingo art. That's what makes it fun! I did another Alice in Wonderland piece (with a flamingo) and a huge pink flamingo piece called "Paradise Is..".

We had several street artists set up outside the gallery and had a booksigning by a local author. Visit my facebook page to see more paintings. I completed a dogwood floral and a mermaid (thanks to the new pirates movie). Catching my breath for now and then will work on some commissions. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
