Show Time!

"Light Reigns" is all dressed up and ready for its trip to Seattle!
I always send these paintings off with a bit of trepidation.
There are so many unfortunate shipping horror stories out there.
But I've shipped a few large paintings at this point and so far so good.

Here you see the painting ready for packing in a float box.
They are so easy for packing and reusable.
I have three in various sizes and have used all of them mutiple times.

Since "Light Reigns" has a more modern feel to it,  I have chosen a simple
 black frame to set off the coloring and composition.

Larry and I will follow out to Seattle shortly for the opening gala reception.
My painting, along with other selected exhibitors, will show in the 
Washington State Convention Center
July 1 through September 30, 2015.

Because NWWS is celebrating its 75th anniversary they have gone all out and are hosting a day of workshops for the particiapting artists along with a vendor convention.
I have four workshops that weekend, one with Brigit O'Conner, which I am over the moon about!
In fact every time I mention the Artists Convention Larry chuckles a little because of
 how excited I am about it.  
Just the thought of meeting so many other artists in the workshops, touring the Dainel Smith facility and the vendors with all their lovely paints, papers and brushes sets my geeky little artist heart all a flutter!
Larry will be salmon fishing while I'm at the convention and we are looking 
forward to visiting all the Seattle sights.

But for now I'm off to the UPS Store and then back to work!
