Hello from Michigan!

I’m all set up at the Palmer Park show in Detroit, MI. This is the second show in my midwest swing. It’s cool and cloudy, but it’s the midwest. It will change. Beautiful park.

We have liftoff!

After the long trek from Portland to southern Illinois, my first show of the season is complete! Thank you all who stopped by and bought my work. The weather behaved, sort of and I made it through unscathed. Next up, the Palmer Park show in Detroit, MI. I will finish my midwest tour in Madison, WI, July 14-15. That’s three midwest shows. I’m looking forward to it!

Ready, set, go!

My show season is set and about to start.

It’s the little things…

… that always take more time than you expect. Ok, by now I know this takes a while, but every year it still surprises me HOW long it actually takes.

I had a busy day yesterday! In preparation for my upcoming shows, I matted the small prints, folded and packaged the cards. Packaged the 11×17 prints. I also printed some of my square cards. This is after several days of printing, cutting matt board and matting the 11×17 prints. I still have larger prints that need to be matted (and matt board cut) and packaged, in addition to folding and packaging the square cards. I now can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe I’ll take today off!

2018 Art Show Schedule

My summer art show schedule is starting to take shape. I am waiting on a couple more application results before I decide my wanderings this summer. I have committed to two shows so far. Both in the Midwest. Art Fair on the Square in Belleville, IL and Palmer Park Art Fair in Detroit Michigan. I will add more shows to my schedule page over the next couple weeks as I know more.

Getting it done

Since last year I’ve wanted to paint three largish square paintings that will fill one wall of my booth. I’m now 2/3 of the way to my goal. I just finished the second one. I’ve done some small studies of these in the past, but they have a different feel at 32×32 inches. Now I have to decide on the third in the series.

 

Next up, I have 2 8×8 paintings that are near done and a 16×16 in the works.
