Presenting spindle’s work, Zellandine’s denouement.  Up close and personal.

For y’all’s joy and art-ness.

Okay, I know that I showed y’all an installation image, but meh, wouldn’t y’all like to see them closer?

So, yeah, that’s the series so far.  There’s more pieces coming, probably for the next quarter at the ARTgarage.

Oh, also, I build a knitty knotty today out of PVC pipe. <–Melissa from Hellp Purl has one; that’s where I got the idea.

And, if y’all are looking for something to do this Friday:

Come to Circus Nerve.  You know you want to. *wriggles fingers tentacles hypnotically*

Courage.

Tonight is Gallery Nite!

All you lucky, lucky people.  Gallery Nite!  Snacks and booze and trolleys taking y’all to the different Green Bay galleries and little artists like me demo-ing for your perusal.

A magical, magical time.

Okay, maybe not magical, but who can argue with the combination of art and booze?

So, come on by and see me.  I’ll be at the ARTgarage demo-ing spinning, yo.  The ARTgarage is having an Artists’ Market, like a mini-Crafting Cartel, and I’ll have books and roving and my drop-spindle, and a theoretically cheery disposition. <–Today’s already been irritating and it’s not even noon.

I’LL GET BETTER I PROMISE!

Ahem.  Where were we?  Oh, right, Gallery Nite.  It’s from 5-8 this evening.  Start at any gallery you chose and hop the trolley to the next.

It’s like a pub crawl but with art!  <–It’s like the least expensive, most interesting date that y’all could ever hope for.

And, while I’m here shilling for The Art Man, have I mentioned I have an opening for a group show coming up?  I have?  It bears repeating, don’t ya think?

It’s vera, vera exciting.

Courage and ART FOR ALL!

GROUP SHOW!!!

So, yeah, I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I was asked to participate in a group show called CircusNerve.

I delivered my pieces last Friday:  a 24×48 in. painting and a clutch of fungoid owlets.

I’M VERY EXCITED!

I don’t really have an proper pictures of my fungoid owlets (YET!) except for these.  They’re representative of the series if not completely encompassing of the options.

So, yeah, an idea of what I’ve got in the show.  But, I am only one of many, many artists.

Y’all will have to come and see!

Also, if y’all need something to do this Thursday night, come by the ARTgarage for Gallery Nite.

I’m spinning.

Seriously, I’m spinning yarn.  It’s kinda wild.

Courage and cake.

 

slacker=me

Okay, not really.

I’ve been running around with job interviews, tiny plantlings, making a new piece for Circus Nerve, and fighting off weather-induced migraines.

My life, it is full.

So, this week’s post is about half done (mostly because I forgot I have 30 images that I needed to, ya know, process).

To tide y’all over: Live Action Angry Birds movie trailer (not real unfortunately).
