Work Sent Out

I Just mailed my work out to the Three Graces Gallery.
The below pieces will be included in the Tiny Tiny Art Show 9
105 Market St.
Portsmouth, NH
Below are some of my process images, sketches and such.
One arting evening I came home with some cupcakes from Sweet bakery.  I made some holiday tea in out new wedding gift Anthropologie octopus mugs. I painted and nibbled on sweets while Tom played his video games, keeping warm with a cup of hot tea, what a lovely evening.

Below are the octopus mugs. look! They have ships on the inside!
The cupcake flavors were; cookies and cream, chocolate chip cookie dough, mint chip ice cream and bananas foster. I think the banana or the cookies and cream was the best.  My all time favorite is the strawberry shortcake.

Here are my finished pieces ready to be shipped out. I framed my Blue Squirrel in a cute shadow box frame.

Hope you can make it to the show, some other great artists will have their work there ad well, including  Kelly Vivanco and Amanda Atkins.

Old Label Inspiration

My Husband just ordered a bunch of old labels from Etsy.  Old labels have always been a great inspiration of mine. I love some of these color combinations.  I think the mmmmm good oyster stew label is my favorite, airport whiskey comes in as a close second, it reminds me of an old travel poster.

Tomorrow I start Graphic design classes and frame my paintings for the Three Graces Tiny Tiny Art Show 9.
