Showdown at Hart Witzen Gallery

Busy month for me. I had two paintings at Hart Witzen's Showdown show......Really glad I entered, because it's just plain cool to see your work hanging in a large space with other Charlotte artist's work.

Downtown Monroe Artwalk Fall 2012

Once again, the Monroe Art Walk was a blast. I met up with artist friends, met some new artist friends, and as usual, picked up some inspiration. I chose the unfinished wall for my paintings this year. Kids were running through and behind the art all through the show. Kind of neat. On Saturday, I set up my easel and got a few hours in on my bubble painting, which I was stalling on, and pretty much got it finished. What a great place to paint! And it was cool having people stop to watch and ask questions, many of them artists as well...all very enthusiastic.
