It's always when I post the least that it seems the most is happening. That seems a bit backwards. I'll work on that.
I am delighted to announce that I've joined the Fantasy Artists of Etsy street team, and I look forward to becoming part of this amazing group of artists.
I've also signed up for two art shows/sales in the Hampton Roads area:
I'll be in Artist's Alley at FantaSci 6 at the Hampton Roads Convention Center on September 29 and 30.
And, pending acceptance, I will be part of the Handmade Parade hosted by the Norfolk Craft Mafia on November 10.
I am very excited about both shows (although a bit nervous). I've been drawing and painting like a fiend to have enough work just to fill up my table. (Which also means that if you had any intention of purchasing one of the originals I have in my Etsy shop right now, step right up, because I'll be taking them with me to the show in two weeks).
If you're in the area, please stop by and say hello.
This weekend, I also had the opportunity to attend the Grand Opening of the Red Queen Gallery, in the charming town of Onancock, Virginia, where ten of my paintings are eagerly seeking new homes. It was a marvelous event. The gallery looks beautiful, open and sun-filled and colorful, and I am both awed by the work of the other artists and honored to be in their company. If you're anywhere near there, do stop in, and, while you're there, take a map of the town, also drawn by yours truly. And on top of seeing the gallery and meeting a number of wonderful people, I took a jaunt down to the wharf, and scrambled all over the Godspeed for a while. Any day with a ship in it is a good day, is it not?
