just over a year ago, i had what i call my FIRST BIG ART OPENING in madison, wisconsin.
i signed on to be part of madison's gallery night and hosted an art show and opening at my favorite local coffeehouse, the evp.
i remember this opening party as my first big art event because absolutely everyone turned out that night! brian's band ghost town council performed and we filled the coffeehouse with family and friends from all over!
this event was also HUGE for me becuase it really catapulted my confidence and belief in myself as an artist and how i could share my life and art with the rest of the world!
so to celebrate and as a BIG THANK YOU! brian and i are hosting another opening party FRIDAY, JUNE 24!
we hung the art show at the evp earlier this week and it looks fantastic! i can hardly believe how many paintings there are!
and i'm so proud that this is the first time i'm showing a piece from my new large painting series (this is your life, 30x30 inches)!
it's really amazing to think that only a little more than a year ago, i had my first show at this location and it literally spun all of this confidence into me to accomplish so much this last year!
i was very happy to update my little artist bio here...and to add in a bit about the upcoming session of my next HOW TO PAINT AN OWL E-course!
and looking back, i seriously would have never ever thought i would have just gotten home from a lovely art retreat and trip to england!
or that my artwork would be featured in somerset studio gallery and somerset studio magazines!
and that i had the opportunity to be invited to teach at artfest 2012! and have had so many amazing teaching experiences with my HOW TO PAINT AN OWL workshops already!
well, i can't think of a better reason to celebrate and have our second annual opening party! and this time we have three amazing bands performing!
i so wish you all could be there! i think i might just have to shoot a bit of video to share and will definitely snap lots and lots of photos! if you are in wisconsin at the end of june, i hope to see you there!
