Small Art, Big Heart


Here she is! Mavis on her pedestal at the Small Art, Big Heart art show and sale. This is my third year to participate. Part of the sales goes to the AIDS Care Service. She was a hit. My past pieces all sold, so I think she may have a new home soon too.


Me and Maivs. I don't really like taking pics. The camera wasn't working and when I was ready to help out, the pic was taken. What a goofy expression I have.


Me and Steven Dunn, a wonderful painter. His work was also in the show. He's a great friend too. And he loves my work. The lovely lady next to him is Amie Hampton, one of the co-owners of Hampton House Art & Framing. The oldest family owned gallery in town.


Me, Mark and Lara Hampton. Great people to put on this event in their gallery. A wonderful place to have my work displayed.

 
Me and Laura Frazier, another wonderful needle felt artist. We had a blast.

It was a good turnout. The food was very good too. I should probably start planning for next year's event. I don't think it would matter, I like to wait until the last minute to get a piece done. Yes, I'm a silly. Have a good one.

I LOVE that you put up pictures of the event- it's not as good as being there, but I can blow up the pictures and have a little look around at what I can see :) Congrats on a good showing- I hope Mavis sells- and what a great cause! Your last sentence made me laugh because it sounds so much like me and my christmas ornaments. Every year I say I'll have them done by the summer and every year I am still painting them in the beginning of December! Nothing like a deadline and pressure to bring out creativity, right? Have a great day Wendy!!!

PS- I always think the pictures of you look fantastic- you can see your energy and creativity glowing in your smile :)

Hi Girlfriend
Fun to see pictures of this high energy event. Didn't we have a great time!! So good to reunite with artist friends that we don't see nearly enough. Mavis is a show stopper. Love her color and attitude.
Love you too!
Steven

Thanks everyone. Your comments make me want to continue and push my creative envelope even more.

Catching Up

Really working on keeping up with the sketching. I got a head cold on the way to South Haven and then when I got home it turned into a sinus...
