And of course finish framing and hang tags.
Cheers as I recently sold a sumi-e that was in the Republic office and a pendant that was on www.shopthefrontier.org . Another sale in Olympia is one of my watercolor pencils sketches of a Jack Rabbit.
I finally finished the Artists in Cellophane art blocks – I make mini sumi-e and adhere them to the blocks and wrap them with “cellophane”. The blocks are placed in retrofitted cigarette machines for “Art-o-Mats”. There are 82 machines located here and there across the country. Their website is: www.artomat.org
As far as the classes I have offered this Spring, I have had five classes cancelled just in May for low enrollment. I also had two classes cancel in April!. The Shelton PMC class [Mason County Senior Center] had 10 people signed on but 9 [count them - nine!!!] participants cancelled out. So I will know this Friday if it will run or not. I didn’t listen to my intuition and ordered the PMC Sunday night instead of waiting to order after the first class on Monday June 2. Least I received the call before I drove all the way down to Shelton.
The “Out and About Drawing” drawing class in Bainbridge has been switched to July 30th due to lack of enrollment.
So on Wednesday July 30 from 2-4 pm I will present Watercolor Pencils - the ability to explore line within color sketches; the option to add water to blend some or all of the areas of the sketch and are very portable when working outside.
With the price of gas and fuel/heating rising – people are really watching their pennies!
Turned in my proposals to Extended Ed @ Evergreen, Tacoma Community College Extended Ed and Encore +, Olympia parks and Recreation and South Puget Sound Community College Community Ed… Now I’m waiting for confirmation and verification of dates.
