I met this little guy, he has a passion for painting acrylics. He created these two here and was and was happy to sit and discuss his painting techniques with me. What a pleasure. Kiddos like this just make me grin. His parents were wonderful too btw..... If anyone is interested in either painting, let me know and I'm sure I can make arrangements. :)
The title of this post is the scenic route only because the content is not singular. Does it go together really? I don't really care (should I?) Anyway it is my art world and all of this intertwined for me so I will put it together here...
Big news for me this last week was that the City of Everett asked me to work on a piano for the annual Street Tunes. SO PUMPED!
so many ideas, how to do this, what materials.....how 70's could it be ugh.... how mixed media-ish shall I go? After consulting feverishly with my friend and creative guru Amy Duncan of Four Corners Design, and raiding her supplies, hubby and I hauled the piano home to my studio. Thank you again Amy.
We managed to perch it on a cart and I primed and collaged away. I am only going to show the back to you now, as the rest will be a surprise. As always, the design process ebbs and flows. and really. how do you plan a mixed-media piano? I worked 11+ hours Wednesday, not sure on Thursday and had to get away from it yesterday. I will need to deliver it on the 28th- so back at it I go.
My neighbors did come over and visit by the way. Little kids down the street asked if I was having a garage sale. LOL. My teenagers friends shake their head! LOL.
who knows what will be next. that's the fun right?
