A Night of Surprise!

Tonight was the First Friday opening for the 64th Parallel Juried Exhibition. The show Juror, Emily Nachison had her work cut out for her. There were over 200 entries, only 64 are chosen for the show!

I was pleased to find out that two of my pieces had been selected for the show.

“Gold Dredge” and “Summer at the Cabin”

I was very surprised tonight when I found out that “Summer at the Cabin” received Honorable Mention!  What a great night.

The Cabin is ready!

What a great summer project, I am pretty happy with this one. This is one of the larger pieces I have done, 13 in. x 9 in.  I will be entering this in a juried show at the end of this month.  I will update on how I do.

The Cabin

Update on The Cabin

Sky and clouds are done!  Working on the second layer of pine trees, and the bush.  Birch trees are next. Using size 15/0 for the pine trees, a mix of 15/0, 16/0 and 18/0s for the bush. I will probably use 20/0 for the birch leaves.

New Bead Art

Getting ready for summer.  I will be one of the Artists in Cabin 13 again this summer.  This is a small cabin in Pioneer Park, a lovely tourist stop in Fairbanks.  The cabin is sponsored by Fairbanks Arts Association, artists bring in their work and man the cabin one day a week. It is a fun way to show/sell your art and meet new people.  I will be there on Mondays all this summer, stop in and say “Hello.”
