Sorry I’ve been “gone” from my blog recently, but I have a very good excuse. I was on a murder jury for nine days, my first jury experience, and it was eye opening, hard, and I’m glad I had the experience. It certainly messed with my schedule though! I planned on spending many studio hours reinforcing skills I learned at the three days workshop in the end of March, but that didn’t happen! I did spend my free time at lunches sketching outside in our redone downtown park, and also read Jan Hart’s fabulous color book during down times.
I found out when my piece Gone But Not Forgotten: Globe Mills will be auctioned. It will be this Saturday, April 22nd, from 6-6:30. You can see the piece and others that will be auctioned that evening at this KCOC TV page. Bidding starts at $140. This is my second time to participate in the auction and I hope that it sells well! You can read about the auction process details here.
This beautiful historic building was torn down early last year to make new highways. I hate when that happens.
I also found out that my piece Contemplation was accepted into the New Mexico Watercolor Society’s spring show in Albuquerque! The show opening is May 6th from 1-4 at the Expo-NM fairgrounds and is free and open to the public. In previous years I’ve attended and it is a LOVELY show! well worth attending if you are in town. It runs through May 28th and is open Thursdays-Sunday 10-4 pm.
Please share my blog post with anyone you think may be interested in either piece or in following my art progress! and thank you for leaving a comment…
