Here it is and February is almost over already. I know it’s the shortest month, but it has flown by. It’s almost March… I’m almost 30… THIS weekend is the SE Area Art Walk… and in just 5 short months I will be a flippin’ Mom!
February has gone too quickly. I am not ready for any single one of these things much less all of them! Oh, and that Mom thing? Yeah… That is the big time personal project I have been working on lately. And the project to soon consume my life, I am sure. So, for now, lets focus on what is coming before August, shall we? Namely the Art Walk?
SE Area Art Walk is happening THIS weekend. March 2nd and 3rd, that’s Saturday and Sunday, from 10am-5pm. You can walk around the whole inner SE area (within certain limits) to visit artists in their home studios! See where they work, how they create their art, maybe get a glimpse of their process, even poke around some pretty impressive old houses in Ladd’s Addition…. But that is just a fun bonus, the ART WORK is the focus here. So come out! Brave the weather, or enjoy the sun, whichever happens, it is Portland afterall. And support some local artist! Buy some art. Meet some neighbors, and get to know the area in a whole new way! It’s a great time, really. More maps, links and a complete artist list is available on the website at www.seportlandartwalk.com
Aaaand if you come to MY house (#32 on that handy little map here) you may even get some homemade treats!
As a way to focus my energies and very scattered brain these past few weeks I have been working on a new painting. Something fun and new to debut this weekend at the art walk. Something to relax me and give me a few minutes to just release instead of think and worry and stress… so I let go this time and just painted. Also a little bit inspired by a dream. I love that, don’t you? I mean what more organic and wholly your own can something be than straight from your subconscious?
So here is just a sneak peek.
If you wanna see the whole piece you should come out and do some art-walkin’ this weekend. See ya there!
