Sketch Book Project: Get Set Go...

© A page from my sketch book

Want to be the rockstar of the sketch book world? Then this is a project you want to be a part of. Like it says on their website "Its like a concert tour but with sketch books".
I first heard of it while chatting with a young artist and docent from a art museum at Starbucks. She was very excited about this project and her description and enthusiasm got me interested in it too. I immediately registered for it and opted for a random selection of a theme.
Finally got my sketch book in mail and my theme is 'Down your Street'. Now I am looking forward to some sketching fun. My first destination, the farmers market round the corner, down the street from home. I will keep you all posted on my progress.


If you want to know more about this project then just click on the image of 'The Sketch Book Project' on the right side of this page. It will take you to the official website of this creative project.

Artisans

Some of my work on the wall at the Artisans Gallery, Opening Tonight.


A couple of weeks back a smart and savvy young girl, Dora Szekely, walked up to me and asked me if I would like to show my work in downtown Mystic, all I needed to do was hang my work and Gallery Sit. She had seen my work earlier and thought I was a good fit. The prospect seemed very exciting and I jumped at the offer. I did have a few hiccups in getting my work hung, but there it is on the wall, contrasting and looking beautiful against the green. 


Portion of the Gallery space


Its a nice little creative group consisting of jewelers, blacksmiths, painters, mixed media artists and photographers. Some of the people whose work I admire greatly and collect.
