I spent this past weekend at the Edgewater Fall Art Fair, enjoying the most gorgeous fall weather, meeting new friends, and selling some paintings. Thanks to everyone who helped make it such a great success! It was a lovely weekend.
I took time on both Saturday and Sunday to walk around and hang a few paintings for The Found Painting Project. After packing up, I noticed that some were still there and some had already been found. Yay!
In advance of the Edgewater Fall Art Fair next weekend, I got to talk with the organizers about why I love painting and The Found Painting Project. Check out the interview here! I’m really excited about the new work I’m bringing this year and can’t wait to share it with everyone.
When I was about five years old, I decided I wanted to design wallpaper when I grew up. Random, I know, but I recently found out that the printer I work with is capable of turning any of my paintings into wallpaper. What?! This is amazing! A chance to realize a childhood dream! Is there anyone out there that still uses wallpaper? I’m picturing one of my urban scene paintings blown up and repeated in the wall of a restaurant, maybe in the bar area in between exposed brick walls… Hey, it’s possible!
There is a sort of wallpaper happening on my artist portfolio site, too. I have been posting images of all the paintings I make for The Found Painting Project here, and the thumbnail squares remind me of a mosaic, quilt squares, or wallpaper. Scroll through, enjoy, and watch the wall of paintings grow over time. And please let me know if you want some wallpaper!
I’ve been busy working on some larger paintings for two art fairs coming up in just a couple of weeks. I’m looking forward to hanging some small paintings around these fairs in addition to setting up my tent. Please mark your calendars!
