Upcoming Shows and Events

It's going to be a busy next few weeks!  Midterms are over which is a relief, but that also means that there is less than 2 months left in the semester and the projects will be piling up.  Before I know it, Finals will be here...
In art related news, I have several things going on in the next few's a quick rundown...

March 31st, 2012, Inner Self Portrait group show - Cush, Beverly Hills, CA
April 1st, 2012, Vending @ BeBeO's 2 Year Anniversary Party, Fresno, CA
April 6th, 2012, Femme Fatale group show, SOMOS, Salinas CA
May 2012, 31 Girls in 31 Days - Online Exhibition

Inner Self Portrait

This show will be supporting The Forgotten Goddess and efforts to end domestic violence.
 This is the painting that will be a part of The Inner Self Portrait group show...

"Kindred", acrylic on canvas 2010
  I'm working on about 5 paintings at the same time right now.  Finishing up the last painting for the Femme Fetale show, barely started the painting for 31 girls in 31 days themed show, working on 2 new ones for my painting class, and also brainstorming ideas for my half of the collab piece that I received from Tammy Mae Moon.  On top of that, sketching ideas for several little paintings that I will be auctioning off to raise money for my trip to Florence in June.  I'll be going with the CSU Summer Arts painting and drawing class for three weeks!!  I am soo looking forward to it, not only because I get to experience a new land, but Florence is one of, if not THE most influental art cities in the world.  I'm also a little nervous, but I know that it will be an amazing experience.   Here are a few rough photos of a new painting that I'm working on.  The idea behind it is that there is a tear in the universe.  This figure is looking at the tear, and see's Earth and it's surrounding planets...she wonders, what is this strange new solar system?

Sketching and brainstorming a lot lately.  This one is an idea for an upcoming themed online group exhibition.  The theme is a tough one! So I'm toying around with different ideas.
