upcoming stuff for November

NOVEMBER will be a busy month!

  I get to do First Friday (Nov. 4th) in Phoenix.  I am helping a friend with his booth since he will be out of town so I will get to have my stuff on his table......Then that Sunday is the 1st Sunday Art Market behind SunDust Gallery.
I will do the 2nd Friday Mesa Art Walk
and don't forget on the 19th and 20th is the Gallery's 2-day festival - I will have lots of stuff to sell.
so come check out all of the booths.  My friends Woodsy Widgets and CCJ Glass will be there!

I will be missing the  Chandler Art walk on 3rd Friday to get ready for the 2 day show but I will be at the Gilbert Art Walk on 4th Friday!
Thank you to everyone that comes out and says hi.
It is important to support your local artists even if you just buy something little - it keeps them creating more super cool stuff.

Saturday Afternoon

OK so this past Saturday I went to a Golden Products Demo in Phoenix.....It was actually pretty cool.  The instructor was really fun, as she was talking about different products she would smear them on a clip board and pass it around with a pallet knife so you could see the different textures.  I wanted to go because I use alot of the mediums in my 3 D paintings.   I like that she went over the different properties and why they act the way they do.  It wasn't just here's what we offer so now go buy it.   I have to admit there was one paint that just blew me away.....interferon violet!    you can use it by itself or mix it with another color and you tilt the painting one way and you don't notice it but you tilt it the other way and BAM there it is!   this bright violet.   I had to buy some.     when the demo was over they gave out some really nice sample bags.   there were two texture mediums that I actually wanted to try but was hesitant to buy them.  I wasn't sure if they would give the dimension I like.   so of course over the weekend I started a new Dia De Los Muertos painting with my new blue paint and fiber paste.   I am happy with how it is working.  I will have the painting for sale on Friday at the Gilbert Art Walk.    Over all I think the videos that I watched on their website were really good but would highly recommend going to one of the demos.  there is nothing like seeing it all in person.
