Great news; “Lipstick” made it into the Minnesota State Fair Fine Arts show. Last year 413 pieces were shown out of 2330 entries, so it is a huge honor! I am excited to see the show and the other entries and eat a few cheese curds and Australian potatoes!
I decided to straighten the horizon and crop in on the drawing from all sides. Here it is in it’s final state:
I was going to exhibit it at the LoLa Art Crawl if it didn’t make it, but since it did, I am making a few prints of it. At work I have access to an Epson 11880, a great giclee printer. I plan on listing a couple prints up in my Etsy Shop.
In addition to the Fair and the LoLa Art Crawl, this month brings us the Cold Blood Creations Art Show held in conjunction with the National Reptile Breeder’s Expo in Daytona, Florida. I have been participating in this show for years, and it is a great time. The art is right on the expo floor with hundreds of beautiful reptiles and amphibians for sale at the largest reptile expo in the U.S. This year I am sending my colored pencil drawing “Shiraz” down to be a part of the show.
It’s going to be a busy August!
