November Artings

November Art Goings On… Running up to the holidays… new e-store launch… art show and reception-ing! 

There is so much going on at this very moment! Holy bananas! My head is spinning… and the holidays are coming! AAAAAA!

At Sidestreet Arts, the new show just opened … The New Member Spotlight Show features my latest Jazz mixed-media-collage pieces. There are 11 pieces of which over half are brand spankin’ new. I’m so pleased with the new work and they will be up until December 2nd (we extended it a whole week… just because). Don’t miss it!

The opening reception for said show is the First Friday in November from 6-9pm with all the wonderfully delish-y foods our gallery members prepare. (Judy’s making peanut butter cookies..mmm). Can’t make the opening? There’s another reception on the 11th… more on that in a future blog.

If you need to know more about Sidestreet Arts, there’s a link in the left-hand column under “Sites”

I’ve got new greeting cards at Sidestreet as well. Nice 5×7 reproductions of a few of the Jazz artworks in the show… and a few other designs as well. They are vibrant on the outside, blank on the inside.

And Speaking of new stuff… There is soon to be a store launch! I’m nearly done with preparing my online store! It will link from here and you’ll be able to order art, prints, cards, buttons, zines and more! Keep your eyes open on this here blog for the official announcement and launch date!

Whew! You made it to the bottom of the post… like I said, there’s  a lot going on.

New Collage

Picasso’s Absinthe, $195 5×7 matted framed to 8.5×11

I have been busy cutting up paper. I have 5 new framed artworks and a few more in various stages of “moving along”. This one is called Picasso’s Absinthe. It’s a 5×7 collage and mixed media piece inspired by, well, Picasso’s drinking habits… as well as his other habits… like his habit of cheating on the women he was involved with. Besides that… As a drinker of absinthe myself, I like this one very much. The green fairy visits often and my obsession with the teals and blue greens was satisfied in this piece. $195.

Be sure to stop by the Sidestreet Arts gallery on 28th in Portland, Oregon and have a look at some of my other collages hanging around.
