Hurricane Erika

I have been so busy with painting.. school... work.. my life is a Hurricane! Work is extremely busy! They are pushing us to work at 48-56 hours per person. Then I have class 2 nights a week. Then I also have my paintings to work on. Here is one my homework assignments starring my super model little angel Winston. The assignment was to paint something in my house using 2 colors other than black and white. I used yellow ochre, raw umber, black, and white. He is sleeping on a pillow on my couch and he is pretty adorable.

Over the weekend I had the orientation for the SE art walk and there is going to be over 100 artists participating.. so the room was quite packed! It was great to see so many passionate people. I am also going to have a piece of art in a group show at the New Deal Cafe for the month of February. I am also working on my piece for the Love Show at the Launch Pad Gallery/Olympic Mills annual Love event. :).... so hopefully I can finish everything in time.

Have a good week everyone!

So I am waiting for few paintings to dry because I really need to get into gear for this summer and my future endeavors.

I started my class this last week and it's my first painting class, EVER! It was an extremely humbling experience. Going to a class and being open and honest to change and learning something new which was and is huge challenge. So this last week we starting working on a still life black and white painting and it really makes you realize that sometimes you need to get back to the basics.

This weekend I met up with my art group and we haven't seen each other in awhile due to holiday hiatus. I really missed each and everyone of them since they all bring a different percecptive to the group and we all really "get" each others creative spirit.

I also found out this week I got accepted into doing the Southeast Portland Art walk which I don't know exactly where I am going to be but I'm sure I will found out more information in the orientation in weeks to come.

Have a good week! :)
