...that it's been an entire year since I had updated my blog. It's even crazier to think that I've been back in my home state of New Mexico for just over that year. In all that time that's passed, there have been some pretty significant milestones, not the least of which has been securing the mortgage of my very first home. And with it comes plenty of extra room to play with!
What's up, everyone?
I just want to invite you to join us at the Kaktus Brewery Nob Hill location on Saturday, February 13th for the debut of Art Goggles!
Caitlin Padilla and I will be instructing groups of folks (just like you!) on how to paint simple, yet, beautiful compositions on canvas while enjoying a pint or two of your favorite Kaktus brew. This is the first time I will be doing something of this nature, so I'd love to have you join us for this event.
Spend opening evening with your significant other or your best friends as we first demonstrate how to paint this pair of love birds cuddled up on a branch, then gift your masterpiece to that special someone the following day - Valentine's day!
There are a limited number of spaces available, so act fast. $35 admits one and gets you your first drink as well as all the supplies you need to paint. And, if you stay for dinner afterward, you'll receive 10% off of your meal!
Visit the Art Goggles website for ticket purchases and more info.
Thanks, and we look forward to your presence!
I've pulled a couple of canvases from the (upright) stacks that have been lying in wait, unfinished, since my last term at PSU. Aiming to complete the set, these are a set of four paintings based on the four elements: Fire, Air, Earth, and Water. Only Fire and Air have reemerged with Earth and Water slated to make an appearance by summer.
AIR was originally a sketch I had made in my notebook while working at US Bank:
I've only begun 'mapping' FIRE by setting the composition of the anatomy.
I MADE THIS!
