If the truth be known, I'm in full procrastination mode. I should be working on my commission...and I will get to it today but I've been sidetracked with getting my ArtandFoundDay artwork ready for placing tomorrow. ...and taking orders for some little teddy bear magnets I've recently received.
I'm sitting here listening to Benjigirl chewing on her prime rib bone and Terry watching some golf tournament so easily tuned out background noise. It's a lazy Saturday almost mid March! We'll putting our clocks ahead tonight and for me that means Spring is starting to happen as the days get longer. Spring, my favourite season! This year we had some work done in the backyard, we're getting married in May so I wanted all the shrubs etc professionally manicured and I had a firepit put in for Terry! We have yet to use it, it's been a month and a couple weeks of that were snowfilled! Not to mention it's been a little too damp cold for us.
But I digress... So many art projects I'm thinking about... I have ordered my Cyantype chemicals and am planning on working with cloth this year for some banners and possibly some table cloths! I've just ordered some art supplies and hopefully I'll get pieces done before we start getting into full wedding mode. As mentioned previously, my facebook friends have been wanting to order my little business card size magnets so I am making templates for ordering more magnets of my art. Trying to keep costs low and pass this on to my customers. I may even look into making an Etsy shop!
My BIG NEWS for this Blog is my Art Show news!!! I entered my first juried art show (Actually my very first showing of my art that wasn't online). I entered the 10th Annual Ladysmith Art Gallery Show, I entered "Innocence Letting Loose" This was the third time I drew my childhood teddy bear and I love the juxtaposition of a teddy bear with a moonshine bottle. ...and I love my teddy bear Charlie! Anyway, I won a Juror's Choice Award!!! OMG! I could barely believe it! I had to keep looking at the result online and I only believed it when I picked up my cheque and Certificate. I teased my neighbours that they can now tell their friends that the live next to an award winning artist ;)
I'll post a couple of pics of these exciting moments....
