Back to [Art]Work

Greetings friends!

I've taken a hiatus from my online life for the last week. It felt good to unplug, and spend time in my offline life. There were lots of visitors around for the holidays, including Matt's brother Luke from Bulgaria, my brother Kyle from San Diego, and my uncle Matt from San Antonio. Fun times!

The first week of my Christmas vacation flew by, but I did manage to get some art making in. I made wedding invitations for a client and for myself. (More on that coming soon!) I also had time to make a new chair piece.

Meet "What You Love",  an 8" x 8" mixed media work on cradled hardboard.  This piece not available at this time in my Etsy shop, as I'm saving it for my upcoming solo show at JR Kortman Gallery!  This is my first EVER solo show at a gallery, so you can imagine my excitement. The show will go up for the first Friday in February and be up for about a month. I'll pass along more details when I receive them. I'm hoping to debut several new pieces for this show, so I'm trying to make the most out of my free time this week. 

"What You Love" is available as an 8" x 8" archival print in my etsy shop. 

Ta-Ta for now!

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays Friends!

Things have been so busy for me as of late that I can hardly believe that this is the last week of school before winter break.  I'm so looking forward to a few weeks at a slower pace, where I can enjoy time with family, friends, and art supplies.

As a way of increasing my presence on the World Wide Web, I've created a new Fan Page on Facebook.  Take a moment to check it out. I've posted a nifty coupon code that you can use in my Etsy shop. But do hurry, the coupon code expires on December 20th!

Signing off for now.  Wishing you health and happiness throughout the holidays.
