Art Show and Sale

Another beautiful weekend has come and gone.  I spent it yard sailing and nose blowing, I have come down with the classic early summer cold! :P  Ah well!  So the majority of this weekend was lazy but good and we were blessed to get a diaper box full of baby toys, books and a gorgeous mobile for my sister - all for $3.00!!! 

But last weekend, well I was busy then - and thankfully not sick! ;)   A woman I know has her own gallery space and it is here where I showed for last year's Art In The City Tour, which, if you like, you can read a bit about that here.  You'll also see in that post, from about a year ago, that we were working on our master bedroom and thought we had found a home in the country.....ah how a girl dreams....it was a pretty nice place but obviously it wasn't what God wanted for us.....I think I'm just going to stop calling it from now on.  What will be will be! :)

Anyways, back to the art!  It was good to get everything hung and the place looked great - but we sadly had to compete with the first sunny weekend in months, so the traffic to our show was a little....quiet.  But a few people wandered in and had a look around and since she has such a great location we may just do it a few more times this summer.






Our art is very different yet shows well together and our sarcastic humour helps pass the time.





Her space is so neat and full of great oddities and eclectic pieces of furniture.





And knowing that many of you couldn't make it due to gardens calling and boarder crossings, I will give you a closer look at some of my work that I had hanging.  I hope you like it and I recommend you grab a cup of coffee as you meander through the gallery.

Well I hope you enjoyed the Art show!  I'm building a new website to combine my art and photography - my old art site is here at PiccoloStudios.com but you can check out my new site at KaitlinAndrews.com is you like.  I'm still working on it but it's getting there.  Seeing as I have a large body of art at the moment, I think my next step is to focus on my illustration work.  I'd like to build of a nice portfolio for that...or hey even write my own book and illustrate it...who knows? 

My original passion was for illustration but I have had fun adventuring out into other forms and mediums but I think I shall get back to my roots....at least until I can sell off some of my other stuff and make room for new work! ;)  I'll let you all know next time we open the doors on the gallery and maybe you can pop by for an in-person-look-see!

  1. Oh WOW, I love some of your newest additions...especially "Hidden Potential" (gorgeous colours!) and "John 8:31,32".

    I just kept staring at the figures on that one, contemplating a Christian's transformation from sin to His likeness, the mess Christ rescues us from and the beauty and holiness He desires for us to walk in.
