Fremont Sunday Market

Michelle Bloom and I will be bundled, drinking coffee especial, giggling and selling our wares at the Fremont Sunday Market tomorrow.  You will find us in the parking garage in the northeast corner of the market from 10-5.  I know the Seahawks are playing – but not until 1pm.  So maybe pop on over before.  I’ve been working hard and I’d love to hand these new bowls over.  Tues would especially love it, she really wants her table back.  I will also have magnets and ornaments.  Michelle is a gifted artist and she’ll be selling paintings and cards.  On hand we will also have delicious, all-natural soaps made by Colby Batts and lovely cards made by stellar ninja photographer, Jennie McClintock Tucker.

Michelle wears many hats (our space at the market is so teeny tiny she’s only able to bring two of those hats) to find out more about her work please visit her at: bloomiverse.com.  To find out more about Jennie’s photography please visit her work at: http://www.facebook.com/jmcphoto3.

Thanks guys.  We really hope to see ye.

Summer Vacation

I have been busy, sitting cross legged on an old chair that’s bound to give way pretty soon.  Late at night, early in the morning, gripping a nail, thinking deep thoughts, not thinking, getting paint all over my dining table, which doubles as my work space.  Here are the fruits of these times.  I hope you like.  I’m in the process of adding everything to my etsy account.  I’ll send a link when I do.  Thanks to my dear friend, Jennie McClintock Tucker for the great photos.

Hi there. Long times. It is summer vacation, which means coffee at midnight, wine at noon, and painting every chance I get. Here are some works in the progress.

Aaron

Big thank you to Aaron who was in from Oregon for two weeks – he picked out two of my pieces for his wife, came back the next day and requested one for his mother in law.  What a great guy.  Thanks Aaron, hope they like!

¡Muchas Gracias!

Many thanks to the people that braved the really beautiful weather and navigated their way to Booth 52 at Art & Soul this weekend.  Cherylyn and I probably had more fun than we were supposed to.

I met some great people, was visited by friends and family, had repeat customers (!) and was overjoyed by all the touching (of my pieces) that went on in our tent.  Thank you for visiting, for your interest and curiosity, for purchasing and for making the past few months of endless painting absolutely worth it!

As usual, I took a photograph as each bowl changed hands.  Permission was granted by each individual (or guardian).  As you will see, some people didn’t mind having their pictures taken, others were feeling a bit too sweaty – it was pretty hot.

Oh, I also had the good fortune of being placed directly across from the booth of Donna Marquardt, a stained glass artist who came down from Ripon, Wisconsin with her husband, a blacksmith.  Her work was right up my alley and I wandered away from my own booth (sorry, Cherylyn) several times to admire what she brought. Think: found glass of any kind – soldered together and placed perfectly in a frames that she found in dumpsters or second hand stores.  I believe I’m doing her a disservice here because I can’t adequately describe the amazingness of her work.  She doesn’t have a website, but here’s her email if my lame attempt at a description has piqued your interest: marquartD@ripon.edu.  We both loved what the other did and made a trade at the end of the show – I can’t stop looking at what I received from our barter.  The picture is below.

Again, thanks everybody.  It was a great couple of days!

See you soon!
