88 Strong

This year I am lucky enough to participate in the annual 88 strong show curated by Mr Chris Haberman and Jason Brown.  I have been tucked away in my studio trying to get some new paintings done. It's even harder to get in the studio since I am a new mommy of a 2 month old but have been working away when she sleeps- and her long sleep happens to be around 8 pm to 1 am, but I am pretty darn proud that finished all the work on time.  Woohoo!   
I decided to paint a couple of vintage radios.  I do have a soft spot for hunting for vintage treasures.  I am still trying to figure out how to bring a baby estate sale hunting because she doesn't fit into one of those baby back packs.... yet :)  


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.
