Grand Opening Art Gallery


We had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of a new gallery. The Theshold Art Gallery is located in Redlands, California.  It is always so inspiring when someone makes their dream come true. We met some amazing artist Lynn Richards, Cindy Rinne and Aeron Brown.

It was an amazing night.

Winter Fest Tree Lighting 2015


Winterfest Tree Lighting Festival 2015
Winter fest Tree Lighting Festival 2015

Tonight we went to the Winter Fest Tree Lighting Festival.  This is the reality that Christmas is just around the corner and 2015 is almost out the door.  Where did the year go.

We stayed long enough for the tree lighting and then left because it was cold. They even brought snow  in for those who wanted to snow board.

Santa and Mrs Claus were there walking around greeting everyone, they had a group there called Heart and Soul line dancing who performed, there was a choir there singing  Christmas Carols, and plenty of food.

All in all it was a good community event.

Be sure to follow us for more festivals, museums, and events.  Like our page and leave a comment (we really do read them).  Tune into our Periscope Art Scopes where we inspire the emerging artist with tips on Getting Your Work Seen………….

Artist Trading Cards

My new project is the Artist Trading Cards.   Each one of these small pieces is 2.5 X 3.5 .  I bought the Canvas Paper for oils but they also have the ones for Pastels, Charcoal, and Water Color.  You get about 10 cards per pack and since they are already treated you can just paint, glue, stamp or whatever you want.  I have seen some very creative cards online.

I love to paint small as you know by my Small Art Series Paintings which start at 8 X 10 but I must admit painting on this small-scale 2.5 X 3.5  is really a challenge.   It will be interesting to see where this leads me.

Let me know your thoughts about these trading cards and take a visit to my gallery for other pieces  http://chinue.imagekind.com/Smallartseries
