Happy Paint Party Friday (On Saturday) and the Five By Five Small Works Exibition
Yes, I have been absent for a good three weeks...Life and "stuff" happens. It's sometimes hard to maintain a blog with work full time, and life outside of work, and creating, and then having to decide whether to simply create and share later, or simply step away for a bit to regroup. I found I needed to have some down time to pick up the pieces and begin again. Right now it's nearly 10pm after a long work week/day and I am sitting in front of this pc trying to keep my eyes open. Now it's Saturday as I am writing this post. The picture I am showing you was created for a call for submissions in 2012 by New York artist Seth Apter. I am tickled to share with you that my 5x5 creation is part of more than 100 others that make up the Five by Five Small Works Exhibition at The Empty Spaces Project in Putnam, Ct. You can read about it here. Also, I want to share with you that Uncle Bill will be celebrating his 100th birthday in about 10 days. I was commissioned to created a birthday card for him, not only because it's hard to find birthday cards for that many years and also because it needed to hold 100 signatures. At least that was/is the plan. So, I created this card out of a half of a sheet of poster board. It opens up to this so there was lots of room for all those signatures. The back of the card states that is was created especially for Uncle Bill's momentous occasion given by family and friends. I do not know Uncle Bill. He is the uncle of a coworker. I may have to go meet him at his party. I am not usually late... but like the White Rabbit, I am late for an important date over at this party. where I didn't know I was a the featured artist on November 28th. Thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting this every week. Thanks for letting me share my news with you and thanks for stopping by.
