It's gonna be a big year, folks...

Well it looks like 2013 is shaping up to be a super artsy year for me, which is very exciting.  I have been creating at a level of intensity that I have not experienced in quite some time, and I’ve been finding time to paint just for myself, which just hadn’t been happening enough.

Along with creating for myself, I have also been doing quite a few design projects on the side for friends.  I mentioned my friend’s Pilates studio in the last post, and I have continued doing projects for Breathe.  If you’ve never tried Pilates, you can give it a try at Breathe free for your first class – check it out in downtown Harrisonburg!  Here’s a poster I created for the studio (you can see the real thing on N. Main Street):

Another design project I worked on recently was a logo design for RPS Therapeutic Massage.  Richard had a photograph and a symbol he wanted to work into the logo and this is what we settled on:

Now onto paintings!  I created this one for some very special people in my life a few months ago, but was finally able to give it to them last weekend.


I’m hoping to have a solo art show in 2013 and while I haven’t figured out a location yet, I have already been doing a lot of painting in preparation.  Here are some detail shots as a little teaser.

And last but not least, I’m designing a jewelry line for the Restore Love Rock & Runway (designed the logo for the event too), an event in February that will benefit the Collins Center.   A little preview below…
