Well I hope your Tuesday has been a delight so far. Last few days have been busy with backend business, gessoing (which is now a verb) new panels for the future, ordering supplies, and website maintenance. My Etsy store is having a sale (check that at etsy.com/shop/LandLabArts) and use bonus COUP10 for an additional 10% off your order. Boom.
Urban Scrawl came and went last weekend. For those not privy Urban Scrawl is an event where artists get a panel that’s 4 x 4 feet or 4 x 8 (on average, some folks collaborate and get an even bigger space) and have 2 days to complete the work. Theres dancing and DJs, foodtrucks, 400 West Rich opens their studios up, and it’s a good time. The some of artworks are made available for purchase annually at the Art for Franklinton fundraiser auction to benefit Franklinton Arts District’s George Bellows Grant program. I’d say I did decently this year. 4 x 4 feet is large for me and I usually spend a lot longer than what I would guess is around 12 hours total work time on a piece, but it was fun. Slideshow of my photos are below.
Another thing that happened a few weeks ago is that W. Ralph Walters interviewed me for his 61411 Columbus Artists series. Between you and me I feel weird about being on camera, but there it is.
Speaking of being on camera. I got a panel on my easel and I’m going to try to record and put up a video later. Test driving for live streaming, so we shall see how that goes.
