Kenilworth Artists  Studio Stroll ~ May 27 & 28 ~ 10am -5pm

I am once again, participating in a studio stroll in the Kenilworth neighborhood of Asheville, NC.  There is great information on the 19 artists participating in this years tour at this link: kenilworthartists.org, along with a map of the studios to visit.

My sheep family was inspired by the mountains I now live with, wrapping around us at every turn.  This  latest work will be on view along with a number of other new pieces for the studio stroll.

The West End Bakery in West Asheville on Haywood, has graciously allowed me to hang my art on their walls for the month.  If you’re in the neighborhood -stop by and have a yummy pumpkin spice latte and see my artwork! img_4819img_4820img_4821img_4822img_4823

Here are my pieces I sent on a recent postcard swap …falling leaves….

Mark your calendar for this great opportunity to view all kinds of art work and the studios where it was created.  

This is my  second time to participate in this great neighborhood event in Asheville, North Carolina. I join 14 other artists who will be opening up their homes or studios to display, sell and talk about their art. We are all part of the Kenilworth Artists Association.

Come and support your local artisans!

“Courage”

This was my recent piece that I used in the annual post card swap, hosted by Kat Sloma, called “LiberateYour Art”.  Participants send five postcards to enter the swap. Kat and helpers send your cards to five other participants which means I received five plus one from Kat , cards in the mail!!

Here is a short video hightlighting a sampling of cards from the swap that went not only across the US but internationally as well….(you will see my lion in here as well:)…

 

Here are the post cards I recieved in my mail box!IMG_3952

This was a piece from Alena Hennessy’s online class “a year of painting II” that I finished up this past year.

We shared collage pieces with other artists in the class using them to inspire a collabrative piece. My fox face, sun and leaves came from Alexis in Oregon I moved these pieces around till the fox image caught my attention and then had fun creating a space for him to play.

First time to do a collabrative piece – great fun!

Trunks up – Good Luck in 2016!

This wild elephant was the out come of some exploration in a class this past fall at Reston Community Center. Karen Mullarky taught Remix Mix Media and lead us through the exploration of many types of intuative background creations. This one was using spray paint floating on top of water that was then lifted out or printed onto paper. I saw the image of this happy soul and brought him to life.

Wishing everyone a creative and fun new year!

I have two pieces in the gallery and some smaller assemblage pieces in the show cases (be sure to walk down the hall to the built-in display area). A portion of my profits will  benefit a local charity – Cornerstones helping those in need lead productive lives.
