So...I have this thing where I buy “souvenirs” to capture a trip or a moment in time...it’s more officially called an art collection 🎨👩🏼🎨🤷🏼♀️ thank you @cindyberrysullivan for indulging my habits. I’m in an abstract style moment 💗....plus, I just love all things Annapolis! I will return to CT refreshed and inspired. What an incredible weekend. More fun shared in my STORY ⬆️
Commissioned pieces are coming along slowly but surely! The start of school has been crazy busy. 🙃 If I haven’t reached out to update you on the status of your artwork please don’t hesitate to message me. Also, if there is a specific time frame (birthday, holiday gift, etc. let me know so I can make sure to prioritize accordingly). I always have multiple pieces in the works at one time so no one is on the back burner.
Thanks to all of you lovely people supporting my small business! I can’t thank you enough for giving me the chance to do what I love every day! *
When things start rolling a bit, you can feel like you're flying! As with moments of stress, I try to live in the moment with happiness too - noticing my feelings, being grateful, and soaking it in but not becoming attached to it, as if my self-worth were my successes. No, I am me. Wins are fantastic but they don't change the underlying nature of my Self. ✨✨
So with all that being said, I'm thrilled that "Flowers Pop on Adobe" was chosen for the @mdfedart Member Show opening in late September. I'll be down in Annapolis for the reception on Oct 7 if anyone wants to join! ✨✨✨ Are you floating in something good tonight? I hope so 🤞😘 #hlcart
One project I really love is photographing artists at work. Here's Lauren O'Brien at her pottery wheel, which we dragged outside (I had no idea how heavy those things are 😊) for the shoot because, though obviously not where she usually works, it spoke to the earthy nature of her art and just seemed to fit her whole aesthetic. All in all one of my favorite artist shoots to date.
TOMORROW NIGHT! From 5-9 @artfarmannapolis on West St. I will be doing a live painting demo of jellyfish and open water during Annapolis’ annual art walk! Stop by to say hello and check out all of my original art for sale!
So excited to officially start offering a new creative service. MURALS!! Give your home a bold, one of a kind accent wall! I have ideas for every room in your house...walls large and small. Contact me so I can get you on my books. 👩🏻🎨
Morning session of Alcohol Ink day saw teachers from Germantown Elementary- We are excited this will be the second time teachers have learned and now are going to implement our class in to their classroom! #marylandteachers
Opening August 24th.... “The Mitchell Gallery at St. John’s College opens the new season on Aug. 24 with an exhibition on loan from the Reading Museum, “Albecht Dürer: Master Prints.” Albrecht Dürer, (1471-1528) the visionary and imaginative German Renaissance painter, draughtsman and writer, is best known for revolutionizing printmaking as an independent art form.
By the age of 30, Dürer had already begun the “Large Woodcut Passion” cycle, some of which are included in this exhibit. Also on view will be the complete series of 16 prints from the “Engraved Passion,” a highly praised suite of illustrations derived from copperplate engravings created between 1507 and 1513, which was begun shortly after Dürer’s return from Italy — the second of two trips that were so influential they made him a bridge between Italian and northern European art. Several prints by Dürer’s mentor, Martin Shongauer, are featured, as well as drawings created by additional Renaissance artists inspired by Dürer’s works. Portraits, mythological images and other religious subjects are included in this extraordinary collection of more than 30 woodblock prints and engravings. Events for this exhibition begin Sept. 5, and it will remain on view through Oct. 14.”🗞#thesundaycapital#thecapital#albrechtdürer#annapolis#artinannapolis#artstagram#instaart#renaissance#artexhibition#prints#printmaking#engraving#woodblock#copperplate#thingstodoinannapolis#illustrations#annapolisart#annapolisartsdistrict#downtownannapolis
