Late last year I was invited to give the first presentation for the 2019 season of “The Lounge Series” in Jasper, Indiana! How could I refuse when it’s one of my favorite topics – mandalas! I’m underway with preparing slides and images to share the history of this amazing art form, after which we will all create our own mandala artwork. All the details about the event are shown in the flyer below, if you live in the area it would be amazing to meet you!
Here is the class I’ve scheduled for March, Introduction to Mandala Art, presented at two locations so you can choose which one works best for you! To reserve your seat in one (or both) of these classes please go to THIS PAGE of my website.
Sign ups are already underway so get your spot before they are gone! Can’t wait to share this fun art form with you!
I’ve had the pleasure of being able to spend a few days in the studio this week! As of yesterday I completed five “in progress” batik pieces that I have been working on for the last few weeks and also completed painting 12 stones that will be incorporated into new mixed media art pieces for an upcoming show. Here is an image of one series of stones as they progressed throughout the day:
A different set:
If you are interested in creating some painted rocks, or just playing in the paints I’ll be having open studio play dates next week! The cost is only $10 for a 2-3 hour session and this month all the fees are going to be donated to HDSA. You can read the details in THIS POST.
Here is one of the batik pieces, almost finished:
I tried my first stop-action film while working on the finishing details on this piece but it turned out slightly blurry and a bit too fast. It was a good learning experience none the less. My second attempt was in focus but my camera battery died mid-recording. Now I’m out of works in progress to film! I’ll get it done eventually though, it’s one of those things I’ve wanted to do/learn. There are so many!
Now I’m off for a few more hours in the studio…I wonder what will be created today!
It seems like a long time ago when I first posted about a project I was working on that would become my first color book. I found out last week that it is now available for pre-sale on Amazon, at a $2 discount! Click on the image below to go directly to the book page on Amazon:
Although it says the publication date is February 2016 I’ve been told by my publisher that it should be released within the next two months. I’m excited! I’m working with a gallery to perhaps have a weekend event with a related class or two available as well as a “book signing” party. Details will be announced as they become available.
In the meantime I’ve already started drawings for a second book! Details on that later. 🙂
