It's MN State Fair time!

I am so lucky this year to have gotten the piece Agree to Disagree into the MN State Fair Fine Arts Show!!! The show has lots of great work as always. Some thought provoking, some kooky, some creepy and some just plain beautiful. 

And personally, I was over the moon to be given the Margaret Bromschwig design award "for the work best incorporating the Modern". Exactly what I have been trying to do! Create pieces using traditional techniques that have a fresh, more modern approach to composition. I did a tiny bit of research on Mrs. Bromschwig and she sounds like she was a wonderful person. Very connected to the arts community including the Walker and beloved by friends and family. 

So please stop by and say hi to my piece. It's around the corner to the left. It's very blue, you can't miss it.

Cute Couple @ Art A Whirl

The painting is called Agree to Disagree, sort of ironic to have a couple in love standing in front of it. So great! Lois Rhomberg from Studio Pintura captured this moment from Art a Whirl for me. Cool fashion, good conversations and lots of cute kid artists. Fun weekend… back to work painting this week.

Art Attack

Thanks to Lois Rhomberg & Armando Gutiérrez at Studio Pintura for inviting me to participate with them. It was so fun to hang out, talk shop and see what the Northrup King experience is like. Lots of nice people taking time to come out (in terrible weather) and look at art. My husband surprised me with a piece by Jan Spencer de Gutiérrez that I had been admiring. Love it & very excited to have it!
