Art at Bumbershoot Theatre!!

It is official~my art is now up and on display!!!! HOOOOLY CRAAAAAAP!! It feels SO fantastic!! Bumbershoot Theatre, a marvelous  theatre company here in Kelowna, has given me this opportunity to show my art, and I am so, SOOO grateful.  It is such a creative little hub, and I am SO excited and honored to be part of the fun.  As of this week, I’m feeling closer than ever to achieving a long-standing dream of mine: being a mom, at home with my kidlets, making art. Nothing sounds more perfect than painting and coloring and playing together, and then sharing all that bright, colorful artwork for all to enjoy.   Here it is!!

Artwork!

Ta-Daaaa!! Me and my paintings!

It is SOOOO EXCITING!!!!!! Never before have my abstract and cartoon paintings been on display together, and I am so happy with it! With MUCH help from my family and friends, we hung the abstract art up higher on the wall for a gallery for grown-ups, and the cartoons low, like a gallery for kids! I’ve always wanted to create art that was accessible and easy to connect to, and that inspired children (and adults) to explore their own creative voices.  Paintings that are bright, colorful, fun, and not too serious-paintings that make people smile. We all can use a pick me up now and then, and I hope my art does that.  Here are close-ups of a couple of pieces:

      Thanks so much Miss Amy, your encouragement means the WORLD!! you are the BEST!!!! How about i paint you a similar one to the 4 panel one, as that is one of the only couple pieces that aren’t for sale! (i did that one for my bro, but it doesn’t fit in his place right now 🙂
