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

HOW IS YOUR 2014 ENDING

Once again we are at the point coming to the end of another year.   This year our focus was more studio working hours, more paintings, more exhibits and completing my first Art book.   Well we did what we set out to do.  All in all it turned out to be a good year for us and it looks like 2015 is going to be an even better year.

We have one exhibit so far in January 2015 and so many ideas as far as more paintings and designs.  My sketch book is over flowing with so much for the up coming year.

As we come to the middle of December, and everyone is running around trying to finish up Christmas shopping….lets stay focused on the real meaning of holidays……family, friends and reconnecting to ones inner voice.

We all have the ability to create a better place, as artist we show ours in the form of paintings, photography, drawings, sculpture, singing, movies.   Art is our avenue of opening doors to creating more beauty,  more inspiring works, more togetherness.

I so enjoy reading and looking at so many of your works of art and you have no idea how you have encouraged me with my own journey of art and for that I say “thank you”.

You can see more of our works at http://chinue.imagekind.com/
Art is a wonderful gift this time of year and a lasting gift which does not lose value as time goes on.

Artist you are the shinning light in the world…….create and let your lights shine bright.  Have a wonderful holiday season and look forward to our January 2015 writings.  Thank you for liking our page,  follow us and please feel free to leave comments we really do read them……

 

Lighting The Way

September Ended ……October Looks Even Better (2014)

????????????????????????      My September ended on a good note……this piece of art is currently at the RAA Gallery on display 9/20/14 to 10/24/14, so my October is starting off really great as well.

I used water mixable oils, which I use in the summer months as not to have fumes from art drying and this piece is part of the Small Art Series that was started about two years ago.  I did have it framed with a wood frame and removed the glass from the front of the frame so the painting could breath while hanging.

The water mixable oils are nice, however they dry very fast while you are working and the color is not as rich as the regular oils.  I still am learning to work with them.

The exhibit has several established artist from the area so I am happy to be among them and this will be my first exhibit for this area so again I am grateful for the opportunity.

Now that the end of the year is racing towards us, I have been busy in the studio with new pieces of art as there will be another exhibit coming around the 25th of October.

I am still waiting on Fall weather to come because so far we have had temps reaching 104 degrees  so summer is still among us.

We’ve added some pieces to the store http://chinue.imagekind.com/ so stop by and find that perfect gift of art.  The store is another aspect of our galleries online so do stop by for a visit.

As always thanks for following us on this journey,  be sure to leave a comment as we do read them,  like our page and of course follow us…………..
