I felt drawn to making (and using) some visual affirmations today. Trying to stay rooted in the present. Happy Thursday – stay cool!
If you are in the area and want another reason to go to the Alameda County Fair, here it is! HPMS will perform around 1:45 on Sunday June 25. Weather looks perfect for that day – not as hot!
I have a painting in the Adult Art exhibit – it is fun to be part of this community event!
I had a fun day celebrating Father’s Day with my hubby and darling daughter. We also ran into a friend unexpectedly. This was not the first time that we’ve run into this friend in random parts of California!
We spent the day in Gold County on an excessively hot day. Either most of the cute antique shops did not have a/c or the a/c they had could not keep up with the 100 degree temps. With that, we still had a lovely day with hubby proclaiming that this was the “best” father’s day.
I want to do some more sewing themed art and was looking for some inspiration. This dress form was calling me…..
I gave the new studio space a “test run” this morning. I found the thermostat (much needed on this hot morning), figured the lighting (switches are in the utility closet, now new art studio space), and somewhat got use to a children’s piano recital happening in the next room over. With all that, I was mostly pleased with the experience. I tripped or bumped into some of my stuff while I work (I move around a good deal). Still need to get the wifi password and find an electrical outlet near my space. I guess it’s all in time.
Today the Alameda County Fair begins! 3 weeks of glorious deep fried goodies, bands from yesteryear, people hawking their wares, and some amazing art on display. Come check out my piece on display this year!
Last night, I attended the artist reception of the LAA Spring Show. I was so impressed with the quality of art on display! There were many beautiful paintings and 3D pieces. The jazz band topped it off! Fun night!
If you are in the area, please stop by and support local artists!!
I am mostly set up in my new art studio. We had to move out of the Downtown Studio space so that the city can develop on that prime location space. Now, I am in this multi-use facility called the Bothwell. I am hoping that I set it up for my best creative possibilities to emerge. Here’s to the possibilities!
I had a fun time yesterday at the Pleasanton Art League Alviso Adobe show. It was nice to meet the other artists and see their incredibly beautiful artwork. Getting the Merit Award was such a welcome surprise! Off to buy more art supplies with the prize money!
I am heading out to the post office to send these postcards out. I still have some to give away. If you are interested, please let me know by filling out the form here. I will not share the info.
