I LOVE this time of year!
Spring is here and the sun is shining! Flowers are beginning to bloom and April showers are here and there. I have lots of pictures to share today! I have been super busy painting everything from canvas to furniture and guitars. Plus there are the first Iris blooms in my front yard!
I have been enjoying the season so much that I haven’t been online much lately. I’m so inspired by the flowers and sun that I have spent a majority of my time in the studio and sun room painting like a mad crazy woman. I love being inspired like that, time stands still, I’m in my own little world!
I am VERY CLOSE to finishing my first painted guitar. I also plan to string it up and put some beads on the strings. I figured since it’s been a while I would post a brand new progress photo or two. I also finished a canvas that has been half done for months and a new daily painting. Even though there is only one daily to post, I have been painting everyday on all my other projects.
I am starting to map out my show schedule for the year and just sent my application in for my booth at the NM State Fair. I’m considering doing a show called GO! that is in downtown Albuquerque at the end of September. I did that show the first year they held it, back in 2003 I believe. The only problem with that show is it is the first weekend after the Fair. Which basically means I will be sitting a booth with my art for the entire month of September. I guess I can’t complain, it should be a lot of fun!
Also, May 12th and 19th I will be at the brand new Albuquerque Neighborhood Market which will also be downtown.
Oh and I can’t forget the Open Studio/House Concert we are planning for Saturday, May 26th! This is going to be a whole ton of fun! For the afternoon, my studio will be open for visitors and then later in the evening, my husband Aaron Lewis, will put on a house concert to introduce some of his newest compositions!
