My first artist reception!

I am looking forward to my first artist reception on Friday, July 15th!
I agreed to show at the Lotus Moments Event Center in March, knowing that I would need to provide 30 pieces of framed artwork by June 1st. At the time I only had 7 framed chalk pieces and didn't feel comfortable in watercolor. It wasn't until April that I finally found my style and began cranking out watercolor illustrations and sharing them on this blog!

I am excited to share with you that I was able to provide 30 pieces of artwork and that they are all hung and ready. They will be on display for private events over the summer at Lotus Moments and will be open to the public for my reception in July. You will find all of my watercolors there (some prints, some originals), sketches, chalk pieces, and hand carved block prints. Many of these pieces are for sale and can be purchased off the wall.

Today I created my postcard-style invitation that I hope to print tomorrow. I am using "An Outing for Foxes" for the front and wrote a poem for the back to add whimsy to this very special invitation! Here is the invitation, for those of you who live far away. I hope you enjoy my little poem. You can click on the image to enlarge it for easier reading.
