You may or may not have caught the news back in May that I moved my blog!
From 6pm to 9pm tonight is the gallery reception for Petshop. I can’t believe it is here already!
Kellie Talbot, Jeanette Jones & I will be hosting with wine, cheese & grape leaves. Yum!
Stop on by if you can because it is sure to be a good party
I have had the pleasure these last few weeks to get to know two fellow artists. We are all showing together at La Familia this month so we used it as an excuse to join each other for a happy hour planning session awhile back.
Artist Kellie Talbot is someone whose work I’ve seen and taken notice of before. When I found out we were showing in the same month at La Familia I went “squeee!” literally. How could I not with paintings this gorgeous? I was a little star struck just by her stars alone but then I met her for real met her (over a drink is a time honored way to meet someone methinks) and she is just a lovely person. Someone I am greatly looking forward to talking with more. There are rumors of a plan to see her converted butcher shop studio and meet her pet duck in the very near future!
Through the work of Jeanette Jones I have been introduced to a whole new series of historical stories I previously knew nothing about. Jeanette has exquisetly painted seriously intriguing portraits of some of Picasso’s women in her series “I Feel Bad for You?”. If you do not know of these dear artists then you should read Picasso’s Weeping Women.
I gallery sat on Friday and could not stop staring at Jeanette’s paintings – finding more and more intrigue of these women’s stories within her winding layers. She has her two smaller works priced for a steal at only $150. I highly recommend getting lost in them.
Oh Brain oh Brain – where have you been? Two days ago I started this post:
“PETSHOP is trucking on the downhill slope! All the pieces are wrapped up and ready to make their way to the gallery. I’m a little sad that I have to say farewell to my menagerie of pets! I’ve gotten so used to them crowding me out of my studio these last few weeks. 29 pieces take up a lot of floorspace…”
In the wee hours this morning my brain suddenly realized I never actually posted the above post. My oh my.
The show is officially up as of today. All these characters are sitting pretty on the gallery walls.
Come join me for the First Thursday Arts Walk Opening tomorrow night will you? I’ll be dressed to the springtime nines and thrilled to see each and every one of you!
Indeed indeed this busy bee has been busy!
Since we last spoke I have:
Fully updated my website www.SaraEverett.com
Got my postcards delivered from the printer for my show in May and they turned out gorgeous — see?
Been painting like a mad woman. (I even traveled to Vancouver to visit with my folks and subsequently took over my Mom’s entire dining room) Currently there are 12 wet pieces in progress sitting around the studio and the only one finished is the one you see here. Yikes! Back to the studio with me!
Hopefully you can get out there and enjoy this lovely April sunshine Seattle is having on my behalf okay? =)
Happy Weekending Everyone!
