Illustration Friday: Wool
Seems appropriate for this week, don't you think? It was gorgeous and sunny over the weekend, and now the temp has dropped and clouds have rolled in. I'm stuck at home with a cold. Time to get out my long-abandoned knitting and watch a movie. Have a great week!
PS I now have paintings for sale at Studio Seven Arts in Pleasanton, CA. I'll be out there Saturday March 2nd, from 10 am-2pm, demonstrating my gouache resist painting technique.
Happy New Year to you, dear readers. How was your 2012?
Mine was really pretty good, now that I look back on it. Highlights:
- Had 2 exhibits of my work.
-Hosted an art sale in our garden. We had so much fun, it may become an annual event.
-Set up a family etsy shop. We actually sold a few things, too.
-Made more money from my artwork than ever before!
-Finished grad school: I now have 5 picture book biographies I am excited to send out into the world in 2013.
-Helped our boy finish high school and go off to college. Sent him across the country. He thrived. We survived.
-Celebrated our daughter's 21st birthday, and watched her grow into an amazing filmmaker.
-Moved into a beautiful new art studio where I teach. Trying to remember where we've put everything.
-Saw lots of art at galleries, Art Murmur, museums.
-Traveled: New York, Rhode Island, Oregon, Cazadero, Half Moon Bay, the Sierras of California.
-Turned 50! Celebrated with friends near and far.
Sunday night Dan made dinner while I finished off the thesis... Look at that gorgeous calzone!
It tasted great, too.
Signed, sealed, delivered. DONE. Yes! We had a drink in the city last night to celebrate. It was fun looking at all the store windows decorated for the holidays. The hotel bars were full of groups of happy people dressed up and celebrating after work.
On a tuesday night. ... Hmm, guess I don't get out much.
I'm back in tea towel production...for my neighbor's holiday bazaar this Saturday.
Requests are already coming. I might just have to make a business out of this.
Oh, and I got some new business cards. I decided, cute as they are, the tiny Moocards are just too small. But look, they're just the same, only bigger. Still cute, don't you think?
Leave your email address below and I'll send you a link for a 10% discount on moocards.
