Crazy Week Commences!

The week before my big show. I"m up and running this Monday morning, tea in hand and paint brush in the other. I'm super excited about my new pieces and wanted to share them and a video to start your week off. Enjoy.

Happiness is...Do Re Mi & licenses.

1. Good Morning! I thought I would start the AM off with another video. In my wildest dreams everyone would break out into spontaneous song and dance like in Grease. This is one step better I believe. I can't stop watching it. Please enjoy...

"More than 200 dancers were performing there version of "Do Re Mi", in the Central Station of Antwerp. with just 2 rehearsals they created this amazing stunt! Those 4 fantastic minutes started the 23 of march 2009, 08:00 AM. It is a promotion stunt for a Belgian television program, where they are looking for someone to play the leading role, in the musical of "The Sound of Music."

2. I am excited to announce that I officially launched my licensing career recently as one of my images was picked up by Artists to Watch for their Holiday 2009 greeting card line. Click here to see it and thanks to everyone at ATW for everything.

Plus, I woke to a message from my former prof. at TX St. University (thanks Michel) letting me know they featured it in a little blip on the Art & Design dept. website. Awe...that makes me smile.

Have a wonderful day!

Happiness is...crunch time & twirl-a-whirls!

1. I'm hunkering down in the studio getting ready for Art City Austin. I'm very nervous & excited about my first juried art festival. So, I'll be super busy in the next couple weeks freaking out and painting and packing! If you are in the Austin area, please stop by! Here are some details:

2. Yesterday, I got together with some crafty ladies for what I'm hoping will be Art Club V.2; a once a month get together to make art with friends. We simply dyed eggs to make Cascarones for Easter. It was a total blast to do on an amazing spring day in Texas!

3. Two visits to the carnival this week! A friend's family owns it and they are in Austin this time, so we went and rode fun rides and ate candy apples. Brilliant fun. I took lots of video footage and want to make a little iMovie soon with some awesomely creepy carny music! Be on the lookout!
