88 Strong- Lets get Happy!


The 88 Strong Show- has 88 themes hence the name which you can pick from any one of the themes.  It's a really fun show because you can do pretty much anything that falls into any one of the themes.  Portlandia is one of the themes- which I decided to paint Le Happy- which is a crepe and steak restaurant in town- it really stands out because it's a vibrant yellow.  Crepes certainly make me happy.. especially when they are filled with nutella and bananas. yum!
About the Show: 88 Strong
Location: @ The Goodfoot, 2845 SE Stark, Portland, OR
Date: September 27th- 5pm and goes until October 23rd
Details: 88 artists that make 8 works and can choose from any of the 88 themes.  Every 8X8 painting is $50 and comes framed.  The show is a cash and carry show which means you pay and walk out with the painting that same night.

Like the Doll I love this so much Erica, awesome work as usual. I love crepes with bananas and caramel, not going to lie that I'd love some of that right now.

Hi Erika! I just caught up on your blog. You are so inspiring, amazing how much you have accomplished while being a new mom. Although we have never met I cannot help feeling so very happy for you with your new daughter. You are a wonderful mother! And thanks for the comments on my blog, Janice from Eugene

teehee...I am flying in here, this tiny paper airplane!

I LOVE YOUR STYLE from having left the corporate world, in order to chase art. I did the same thing, only I am a French teacher who is now going to substitute here and there....

THANK YOU for your visit and your art IS FANTASTIC!

50 dollars is a bargain for paintings such as these.
