Last weekend I included a painting in the Kansas City Artist’s Coalition‘s Public Hanging Event. It was a fun event and I’m looking forward to participating again next year!
My teaching certificate is about to expire – so in order to renew it I needed to get some credit hours in. Luckily the Kansas City Art Institute offers professional development classes for educators. I spent the weekend learning how to create digital collages. This was perfect, since I love collage and I needed to freshen up my Photoshop skills. The finished products are a little crazy, but I had fun learning the processes.
The kids are of course my kids
The mouse collage is based on the original sketch that I created for this painting:
I thought it would be fun to compare what I can create digitally with what I can create with paint. I’ll talk more about this painting in another post
Last Saturday the Sexy Accident released Lavender 3 at an AMAZING show at the Buffalo Room in Westport. Galadriel Thompson filled the room with animations and the music was incredible.
The book is well worth the wait – grab your copy at sexyaccident.com!
Here are a few photos of the paintings that I created for the book on display before the show began.
Some photos from First Friday. The show is up for the month of April – so there is still time to check it out!
I’m excited to announce that my husband’s band, The Sexy Accident is releasing it’s newest album soon – but not as a normal CD – they are creating a beautiful hard-back book which will include a digital download of the music. The book will feature photos and stories and interviews and… ART! I will have five new paintings featured in the book along with the work of many other talented artists. We are trying to get the word out, so check out the pre-order site, and please share with all your friends!
Friday night was crisp and beautiful and it was a great First Friday. Thank you to everyone who came out to the opening at the Jones Gallery! If you didn’t get a chance to stop by yet, the work will be up for the rest of April. I have about 19 pieces, and 3 brand new ones, on display.
I’ll post more photos from opening night as soon as I get them off my husband’s phone
I love sharing photos of my paintings once they are out in the world. Their new owner made a beautiful arrangement on the wall in her loft!
Another painting finished for Jesse’s Album – I’ve got a few others done as well, but I’m not going to reveal them all until the album is released
I love watching the Olympics – so during the commercials I grabbed my jar of pencils and drew prehistoric things for Illustration Friday.
