Snow Day Artwork

Latest art during the snow. I am also taking a graduate painting class called Symbolism and Metaphor through VCU. I think it is helping me to take a different direction in my work.

Updated my Website

I have updated my website using a design template and hosting service from OtherPeoplesPixles. This company caters to the artist website helping to create an online portfolio. I am very please with the outcome. It was very easy to create my own website using their templates and uploading photos was so easy. It will be easy to update when I create new work and give updates when I have new events.

Beanetics Art Show

Tonight Travis, Brie and my self went to Beanetics on Columbia Pike in Annandale, Va to go to Jean Barrett's art opening. It was a lovely opening, wonderful landscape paintings and fabulous friends. Jennifer Judelsohn the curator always puts on a good show. Since Brielle has been born we have manage to get her out to a few art openings. She can be quite the party girl.

Artomatic Opening Night

Travis, Baby Brie, Grandpop and I went to the opening of Artomatic. It was so crowded. We had some trouble getting the stroller and Grandpop in his wheelchair in and out of the elevator. We only made it to the 6th floor to see my art and meet up with some friends. Grandpop rolled himself around to check it out. He enjoyed the people watching. We ran up the stairs while Grandpop stayed behind to look at the peeps display. We couldn't get on the elevator with the wheelchair because it was so crowded. You could barely walk around the peeps display so we went back to get grandpop and get him downstairs. We saw some more friends at the Electric Stage where Demivolt was playing. Then it was time to get baby home.
Parking in the garage is convenient and only $6.00 if there is no Nationals Game. I think the price goes up for a game. We hope to get back soon to see it again. There is so much to see.

Artomatic Finishing Installation

Today we brought baby Brie to Artomatic to finish installation. Hanging artwork with a newborn has had its challenges, like breastfeeding and changing a diaper while hanging art. But I am so happy that Brie is experiencing this event.
We walked around and saw many artists at work finishing their exhibits. We also saw displays from friend's and favorite's from past Artomatics. Some of our friends and favorites on the sixth floor include Monica Stroik a friend that shares the space next to me,and some new favorites Melissa Tenney and Melissa Burley. On other floors artists worthy of viewing Sean Wexler, Cecily Corcoran, Jennifer Judelsohn, Veronica Perez, and Andrew Wodzianski

Artomatic Begins!

Tonight Travis and I with baby Brielle in tow went to hang my artwork at Artomatic. Thank goodness my friend Monica Stroik who shares the space next to me painted my wall for me, with help from Rick. I was hoping to hang my art two weeks ago but Brielle was born two weeks early and not everything goes as planned especially with having a baby.

Brielle was so good, she laid in her stroller asleep without a peep. She just ate, fell asleep in the car, mom had a nap, and her diaper was changed. It's a perfect balance that can be hard to achieve sometimes.

So with having the wall already painted the show hung with ease. It took almost 2 hours. The volunteers were kicking us out at 9:55. We worked til the last minute. But of course there are a few things that need to be finished. Like hooking up the lights to an extension cord/power strip and fixing some of my adhesive letters. Travis will go back and finish. He is the best.

Hopefully we will be able to attend on opening night with Baby Brie. It will be her first art show. I am so excited.
Come see my work and Monica's work on the sixth floor right near the elevator, on the east side.
Artomatic starts May 29th to July 5th. It is located at 55 M Street, S.E. (at the corner with Half Street)

Fundreds at the Arlington Arts Center

About 2000 students from different schools in Arlington County Public Schools contributed fundreds to the Arlington Arts Center Fundreds display. The display had a fundred station for people to create more fundreds and videos about the project.
Today I will be conducting a workshop at the Arlington Arts Center to make fundreds from 1-4pm.
