It's been a pretty busy and exciting year for me art-wise so far to say the least. I feel like I've already produced a ton of pieces in the last few months and I have lots and lots of upcoming projects, shows, sales, and other artistic obligations that I'm predicting will have me busy for practically the rest of the year. I'm not complaining though- this is a great thing for me to be experiencing and I'm so grateful.
Right now I'm up to my ears creating new artwork for the Annual Buckman Art Show this Friday & Saturday. The show is an annual benefit for an arts magnet elementary school in Portland and some of the coolest kids I know go there. For some reason we've never been able to attend in past years so I'm really looking forward to seeing the slew of art that will be on display. We are hoping to bring some home for ourselves too.
I'm having a blast churning out pieces in yet another tight-deadline situation-something I finally feel I'm getting used to. Portions of the sales are going to the Buckman School, which is always a good thing - Buckman seems like a pretty awesome school.
So here's a sneaky-peak of what's in store:
Then, on Sunday. Lucy and I will be selling at Crafty Wonderland which, I might add, is celebrating it's 2nd anniversary.
If you're gonna be in Portland this weekend, I hope to see you at either of the events. We'll probably put the originals that don't sell up on Etsy so look out for that.
...And now back to the drawing board. Literally.
