March Roars in Like a Lion...

..wonderful evening at the opening of Boise Open Studios Collective show
at the Boise  State  SUB.
I have a piece in the show. It will be up until March 25th if you haven't seen it yet. 

Then it was time for the Quartlery Gypsy Gallery Show.
This time it was held in the Historic Hoff Building in the Crystal Ballroom.
A beautiful location with live music all evening. 

9" x 12" Adventure Mixed Media on hardboard $50
Of course I had to leave some time for art making.
Had some nice studio time with my daughter before she  moves back to Texas.

Then it was off to Green Chutes Gallery for the opening of  Art By The Square Foot, of which I have a piece in that show.  I also updated my display taking out Valentines Day items and replacing with more spring themes. This was a tradition I learned about in the Japanese culture. That you would never hang a painting out of season, like a snow picture should not be hanging in the summer time.

I also applied to be chosen to participate in a Public Art  Project for the City of Ketchum.
My proposal was for a similar work of art as this one featuring one of their most popular mountain biking areas in the painting. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Then it was time to put everything away and clean up for my assemblage workshop last Sunday.
In the foreground is the work table.
The black desk held all the paints, glues, scissors etc.
and the table behind that had all kinds of buttons, wood pieces, papers etc. 
I had three ladies join me for my class. We had a great time but no one finished.
I will have an "open studio" the next two sundays from 2-4 for people to work on their projects.   If you are interested it is $50 if it is your first time and I supply everything. If you are just coming to finish a project it is $25 for my glues and paints and my assistance.
