This morning I got the exciting news that I’ve been chosen as one of the artists for Rachel Notley’s 12th annual Art from the Unknown Art art exhibit in Edmonton. I’m very excited for this awesome opportunity ❤
It’s going to be a busy month since I also have a solo exhibit at the Fort Saskatchewan City hall art Nook at the start of October and now this at the end of the month but I love it. More opportunities to share my creative voice with others.
Keep checking back for more upcoming events and exhibits.
So, back in 2014, I was approached to do another commissioned guitar that I’m going to share with you today.
Why am I only posting about this now, you may ask?
I was asked to keep it on the down low because it was for a company that was, at the time, in the final stages of app development and would be launching a beta version soon and hadn’t made an official public announcement yet.
So, I kept it Hush-Hush.
Until today, that is, as I see they are fully up and running and downloadable.
Now for the details.
Last October, I received a message from Andy Altman the now CEO of Gig Town, in San Diego, California, asking if I could do a guitar for him as he had seen my other pieces online and thought they were “awesome.” *Yay!*
He wanted it for the headquarters of his new biz and asked that it include their logo (another reason I couldn’t share pics ’til now).
Of course I agreed because I love a challenge and I love painting, so it was a win-win. Plus, it gave me one more piece to add to my Colour of Music series.
After working out all the boring details & layout, I was given free rein to start work on the piece.
A few weeks of serious painting later, (from which I’m still finding paint splashes in my studio) I was finished and ready to ship in early November.
Without further ado, here is Wild Orange–Gig Town’s Commission.
