I have been in the fine arts / graphic arts business for many years, working in watercolor, pencil, pen and ink, acrylic, acrylic airbrush and computer art (with experience in Photoshop and Illustrator). I display in local galleries, and do illustration for a wide variety of venues.

Poulsbo City Hall Show

The art league show at City Hall went up a week ago.  I have three items on display.
Beach Creature











Croak-cosmia 
 










Gardener's Nemesis











The last one shown here is a slightly different from the one on display.  I did not get a chance to photograph that one before the hanging; so - this a recreation done in Photoshop.  I'm actually pretty happy with this version as well.  

Zazzle

Check out what you can make on Zazzle!  I water-colored an autumn leaf pattern; and they let you add that design to canvas shoes.  Here is the pattern:
















And here is the first item I created:











I'm definitely going to experiment with this more - have lots of ideas.

 and Mmmocha
















The show will be up for three months.

October already!

Too many things going on in September...!
The arts fair mentioned in my last post went well.  The weather cooperated and there was a pretty good turn-out.  I have to state that we had the lowest amount in sales that I can remember in the last four years.  Sign of the financial times, I guess.
The Poulsbo Art League also had our yearly business meeting the last week in September.  It looks like three of the four officer positions are going to be filled with people who have done it before.  I was secretary for two years a couple of years ago - and it looks like I am doing it again, for at least another year.  Our group does not meet in December and, honestly, I could use the break.  Between health issues and other distractions, I haven't found time to paint for several weeks.
Hoping that improves.
