This was my first Art Hop and it was a blast. I was a little stressed to get everything done but I was more stressed by Saturdays weather. We held out and ended up having a great Friday evening and an excellent Saturday.

I met some super people and got to listen to some excellent music. I am HUGE music fan and an even bigger live music fan. I heard Marty Power play for the first time and cant figure out how I had never heard of this guy??!! Things were too crazy for me to mingle too much but I got to observe and listen to Marty and found my new favorite local musician. He seems like a super nice guy and I could have listened to him all weekend. Saturday ended with the public debut of the Haymakers. They were great as well. It was there first outside-the-garage- performance and they played only original stuff. Gutsy and worth it I think. Good job guys!

Now some pics! I was too busy to pull my camera out after the event started but at least I caught a few images of the mural and the artwork on display.

Above you see Poco, Uli, Roscoe, Brian and Yazzy.

Here you see Mickey and friends. I couldnt resist the cute butt angle.

Above you see Lucy and her favorite (slightly torn) red sweatshirt. Too cute!

My display of smaller items. They were the big hit this show. Luckily I love making these items. They are all original pieces of art but not all paintings. It makes for a nice break but still allows me to be productive and play around a little with color without having to bust out all the paint!

The first corner of the open show area.

Here is the furthest wall of the open show area. I liked this wall a lot. I think Masha and Ryan had a great idea to display the pieces all along the fencing.

Above is the last wall of the display area as you are about to exit the area. It was a grouping of the pieces that didnt really match with all the others and it was kind of a last minute move. Another artist was expected but he never showed. He dropped some stuff off a week or so ago so they put it up but he never made an appearance. The guy missed out!
I had a great time and I am super thankful that Masha and Ryan invited me to join them. I would love to do it again! I now know what to expect and I had some great ideas on how to make it all smoother (on my end ofcourse) and new things I would love to display. Thank you to everyone that stopped by! Drop me an email and let me know what you thought of the show; I would love to hear from you!

Great painting weather

So I might be a little under the weather but the actual weather is perfect for working on my mural at Play Dog Play. Below is sample of what you will see if you stop in this weekend. Not the best pic but you get the idea!

The above image shows about eight feet of the 97 foot wall. So stop by Play Dog Play this coming Friday night or Saturday and check out the other 89 feet of YellowDog Art! Food, drink, live music, pups and art....what more could you want?? Oh, I know! Nice weather so it can be outside! Well, so far so good. Keep your fingers crossed.

There is less than a week before the South End Art Hop. Less than a week!! Thank you Mother Nature *knock on wood* for the recent beautiful weather; it has really made catching up on the mural possible. I put in a solid 6 hours today and it felt great. I havent felt 100% lately but I finally got some black lines on the wall for definition and Im feeling much much better. My paintings for the Art Hop are almost all done. I have actually kept up on those all along.

I also have some new items to show at the Art Hop. Some Mail Art and the newest of new, cards! Both are on recycled products and each and every little piece is original art. No prints! Oh, and Moleskines! Who doesnt love a good Moleskine journal?! Now you can have original artwork on your Moleskine. They make for excellent gifts. Stop by Play Dog Play on Pine Street Friday night or Saturday, say hello and let me know what you think. There will be drinks, food and live music. If weather permits, we will be outside and your canine friends are more than welcome.

Blogger isnt letting me upload anything right now so I will try again tomorrow to give you a little look at what I worked on today. Even better, check out the Art Hop next weekend; I cant wait to see everyone!
