I am devastated how fast this year is going-- here's a reflection of what April had in store.
My biggest accomplishment this month was finishing Abundance. This oil painting took approximately 3 months.
There were 3-5 layers and many details. This piece is now available. It's 18x24x2", priced at $3,300
I also hung a show at Artco Framing and Gallery with Erika Norris. We had a little reception on April 20th. More about that here.
Thank you so much to everyone who made it out to see the show, <3
Spaceworks acquired some money to give out as grants to creative small businesses in Tacoma that are Spaceworks Alumni.
After applying, I was randomly selected. This was HUGE. I've basically made zero money this first quarter. So this was such a blessing.
The grant was to be used on marketing expenses only and had to be used by April 30th.
What I spent it on:
Immediately Artwork Archive + Smartist have benefitted me. They make my life so much easier. The other things/services are a much slower burn. But I think they'll be hugely beneficial.
Interviewed by ArtRKL
Online art magazine ArtRKL reached out to me via Instagram. I was happy to do a zoom interview with their writer.
I look forward to that publication around July.
6 Minis for Proctor Art Gallery
I made the 6 new mini watercolors seen above for an artist feature at Proctor Art Gallery (May-June). The candy paintings are 6x8x2" and the fruit paintings are 8x10x2" all on Arches watercolor paper mounted on a cradled wood panel varnished and ready to hang.
Looking forward to...
I'm looking forward to the print release of Abundance scheduled for May 1st.
