Well, I thought it was time for me to write a post, and when I pulled my blog up I could not believe it’s been that long! I guess I do have a few excuses, I have been pretty busy. But that has not stopped me before.
One major thing was my move! I have not decided if I love or hate moving. I don’t like all the work involved and the hassle involved in moving, but I love the change, the “new”, the “starting fresh” part of it. Lot’s of great things about my new place. #1 cheaper, #2 walking distance to my art studio, #3 free cable & #4 direct route to work. So it’s definitely a good thing.
Another major “distraction” was SXSW. I volunteered again to work SXSW EDU & SXSW Interactive. I love it! I actually took vacation time to do it and it was lots of work, but ended up getting in to see Bruce Springsteen in concert! I was right by the stage, and it was an amazing concert! We also made it to Rachael Ray’s free breakfast! (but never got near the food! my friend waited 2 hrs!). Here’s a few photos taken with my phone camera. Boy I wished I could have had my big camera there! 🙂
I got a bit of painting done in February (one day I actually painted 5 minutes!). I submitted a piece to the #TwitterArtExhibit in Norway! The exhibit is a fundraiser organized my artist David Sandum. This is the 2nd year he has done it and it sounded fun! Plus I love the idea that I will have a small piece of art in Norway!
I also did a couple of paintings for the Arthouse 5X7 fundraiser, which I got to participate in last year and was fascinating. If you happen to be in Austin and want to check it out, they will be having 2 events next week, the 5X7 Splurge & the 5X7 Social. Look at their website for details.
Now I have no excuse to just get busy with my art. I am a few minutes away from the studio, and I will be participating in the West Austin Studio Tour in May. So I have lots to get ready for. This is the first time I really get to participate with my studio in the tour! I am very excited.
I will get back to posting more regularly. I have a lot of art “business” to take care of, so I will share some info!
