Artist Market

Thank you to all who came out to the Ithaca Artist Market yesterday. It was a busy, hopping place! Such a nice event to be part of, and it looked like everyone was enjoying themselves. Music, food, art, good company, what else can you ask for?! It was wonderful to meet so many people.




A lot of paintings went to good new homes! I will be posting the remaining bird paintings soon in my Daily Paintworks Gallery.

Shows

The Summer Mosaic Show was great! Wonderful to see everyone's art, and to meet a lot of new people. I'm happy that 8 of my pieces went to new homes!
This week I have been getting ready for the Ithaca Artist Market on Friday; 12-7PM at the Ithaca Farmers Market site (Steamboat Landing). I have taken part in this the past 2 years. It is a beautiful spot, and covered, so always a good place to be, rain or shine. I'll be bringing some of my birds and other works.

I'll be in booth 68. Hope to see you there!!!

Done!

Last but not least! The final three of 50 are done! 
Downy woodpecker (from a picture by Petra Glorie).

I had trouble deciding which birds to paint next, until co-worker Mashelle showed me some of her pictures. This one of a starling that had fallen out of a nest was just so cute! She put it back in its nest, so hopefully it all turned out well.

The oriole is such a beautiful bird! This summer I saw one in our yard for the very first time.

All these birds will go the Summer Mosaic show in Corning. They will be part of 1500 pieces of art in the show! I'm looking forward to see what everyone has been working on.
