Edible Schoolyard online auction

Edible Schoolyard is a fantastic program at First Line charter schools in New Orleans.  The kids are involved in every level of planning and maintaining the gardens, and the food is prepared at their cafeterias, where young folks interested in the culinary arts can work with local chefs to prepare the foods they have grown and harvested.  Their online auction is open for bidding, and there are some fantastic hand painted watering cans for bid, including one by yours truly.  Check it out:

RED exhibit

I’m excited to say that this painting was accepted for the upcoming RED exhibit at the Raymond James Stutz Gallery in Indianapolis.  This my first juried exhibit, and my third exhibit at the Stutz Gallery in downtown Indianapolis.  It will be for sale after the exhibit.  If you’re in the area, come by on Friday, February 3rd.  The address is 212 W. 10th St., Indianapolis IN 46202.

New Year = New techniques & new knowledge

In keeping with my resolution to really focus on my art this year, I’ve tried a new approach to a painting, and I’m experimenting with glazing.  I’m probably not doing it right, but I think it’s something that requires practice.  I also signed up for a teaching course on the business side of being a professional artist.  I’m hoping the investment is worthwhile and can get me more exposure, and of course, more sales.  I’m hoping to have at least one of these three paintings in the Stutz exhibit for February, and I’ll have some of my art at Sacred Roots Midwifery and Birth Center for the next few months.  Wish me luck.

 

I’ll keep you posted!

 

 

Indiana Interchurch Center Gallery exhibition: Home

I am SO excited.  I found out today that this painting has been accepted for the exhibit of women’s art called “Home.”  The cherry on top was the email I got today from Frank Relle, of Frank Relle Photography, who told me he loves the painting that was inspired by one of his photographs.

Tiny

Gallery 924 is a local art gallery here in Indianapolis. They are looking for submissions for their 5th annual TINY exhibition. These are three of the four pieces I’m working on for submission. They will be for sale after the exhibit, assuming that the gallery accepts them. These pieces are 5″ x 5″ each, and would make nice Christmas gifts. They are very easy to ship, unlike large canvases. The fourth one is a little more complicated and I hope to finish it this evening if I have time. Mondays are simply horrific at my full-time job, especially when we only have four people working.
