Through my meandering on the internet I had the pleasure of meeting and conversing (virtually) with Maryanne Ventrice a photographer based in New York. Maryanne also enjoys interviewing creative individuals on her blog, be it musically or otherwise and was kind enough to include me among her interviewees.
You can check out her blog and the interview here:
Interview: Amanda Milke
Enjoy & Cheers!
Lots seems to be happening around here even though I sometimes fail to realize it.
Here’s a look at what’s happened, going to happen and happening.
Happened-My art showcase at Edmonton Jam Space finished Oct 4th so I picked up my paintings from Jonny on the weekend. Things have picked up for him too so he hasn’t had a chance to set up the next artist for display. Those walls are going to look some bare. He offered to have me back sometime so I may set something up for the future. I did however leave him with a “Commission Flier” to stick up in case anyone wants their old guitar made over into art.
Going to Happen– Nov 15th, 2008: Shop in the Fort Trade show (I’ve already mentioned this one)
*New*-I have a gallery showing booked at the Dow Centennial Center’s Gallery for the whole month of February 2010. Sure it’s a ways off but hey it gives me LOTS of time to create new pieces and have old ones framed. Either way exciting.
Happening-I currently have 2 abstract paintings, 2 new watercolor series, commissions, and some abstract recycled jewelry on the go. Fun Stuff:
One of the abstract paintings you’ve already had a glimpse at and the other one I’m keeping until it’s finished.
I will give you a peek at one of the new watercolor series I’m working on.
It’s a three piece series titled: “Three Fold Prayer” and will be done in the same style as all my other watercolor pieces such as “Life Simplified”.
Here are the outline drawings and I’ll be adding the watercolor today with the hopes of starting the text on at least one of the pieces. Each piece is 9” x 12” on 195gms weight cotton acid free watercolor paper.
Back to work.
