Hello all! The last time I managed a journal update, I was about to be the AGoH at ICON in Cedar Rapids, IA (which was a **WONDERFUL** time), so it's only appropriate to follow it up with another AGoH announcement! You can catch me this weekend at ConStellation 8, live in all my awkward glory! This is the con that started it all, to say nothing of my beloved con family, and it means a great deal to me be one of their official guests this year.
ConStellation 8: An Octopus' Garden
April 28th - 30th, 2017
Cornhusker Hotel in Lincoln, NEwww.constellationne.net/
CS8 t-shirts featuring this handsome fellow will be for sale, and the original shirt artwork will be available at Saturday's art auction. In addition to having prints and small originals in the art show, I'll have still more prints and postcards available at my booth in the dealers' room. The art show, dealers' room, and art auction are all FREE and open to the public, so feel free to wander in just to enjoy all the lovelies! Truly, there are some amazing artists that mail in to the show, and the folks in the dealers' room are an honor to know both within and without the convention circuit.
My few of newest paintings, prints of which will be available at the con:
I really ought to update this more often, but when free time comes around, I confess to hiding in my studio by default. My gallery has been hopping, at least! I've a personal goal of finishing all twelve paintings for "Make-Shift Angel--Series 2" in time for a 2018 calendar, and as the fifth angel is currently waiting to be completed (I had to pause for con prep), I ought to just manage it.
Life-wise, all is wonderful and delightfully boring, which has been a relief after my husband's health scares the last few years. Indeed, boring is GREAT!!!
Love and happiness to you all. If any of you can make it to the convention this weekend, please feel free to flag me down and say hello!
