Recently I completed a piece that I have wanted to do for quite a long time. Buck, 10×8, Alcohol Ink on YUPO pays homage to my youth. Growing up with a family full of gunsmiths I saw many deer. Most of them at the end of their life in front of me on the dinner table. I spent many hours in deer stands hanging out with my Dad and at one point killed a deer. That one experience made me realize I was not a hunter.
Participation in the Tarrywile Spring Artisan Fair was a great experience. There was such an eclectic mix of booths. Booths included fabric covered button jewelry, handmade greeting cards, alpaca socks, painted drift wood and a watercolor artist. Our event coordinator Stacey did a fantastic job putting the event together and the venue was very unique. We had the luxury of being setup in the green house room of the historic Tarrywile Mansion. Lots of light and some very cool windows completely surrounding us! Perfect to display my very colorful art. I raffled off a free class to one of my upcoming classes and the winner was a young lady named Courtney. I look forward to seeing her again and sharing my passion of Alcohol Ink Painting with her.
The rain and cool temps did not discourage my students this past Saturday at Gallery 25 in New Milford, CT. In all we had 14 students attend and I know the majority of them have a new obsession — Alcohol Ink Painting! It is always such a pleasure to share this relatively new medium with others. It’s so much fun to see all the amazing art created by my students.
The Gallery 25 Alcohol Ink Demo in New Milford, CT was a lot of fun yesterday! We had a nice turn out and everyone was very excited about learning more and incorporating this medium into their current art applications. A big shout out to Gallery 25 for hosting me and a huge thanks to my husband Tony! He is the most awesome assistant I could ask for! I am looking forward to the upcoming Let Go, Let It Flow Alcohol Ink classes this coming weekend!
