News, Travel & Thoughts, Oh My!

There are a lot of activities this summer, so to catch you up on recent past, current, and immediate future events…and to provide a bit of In My Travels…

Builder’s Brewery Art Auction was held June 20 to June 28

What an honor to participate by donating my art to be auctioned off, with all proceeds benefiting Relay for Life.  Blue (Blue Myanamotu) did an outstanding job of organizing and blogging about the event on her blog: Virtuosity 11:11.  I had been out of the country and returned on the last day of the auction, to see that all of my artwork had sold at auction.  Blue tp’d me to see, and I had to rub my eyes at the final auction price of The Return. 

I don’t know that I ever saw the final tally for all of the proceeds from that event, but I do know that it was extremely successful.  This was due to Blue and her team’s very hard work.  A huge thank you to her, again!

Art in the Park opened a new exhibition on Sunday, July 19th.  Information about Art in the Park can be found here:

Windlight Fellowship

I am very excited to announce that I have been selected for a Windlight Fellowship.  My art will be on display in the Windlight Gallery during the month of August.  I’ll also be featured in their magazine.

Commissioned Art

I am thinking about accepting requests for commissioned artwork.  In advance of that, I’m seeking 2 or 3 unique requests for a FREE trial.  Please take a look at The Wharf.  Ideas can include: friends sitting outside a house, a group of people on a RP SIM, a couple in a romantic setting.

Please contact me in world or on FB for guidelines.

As if the Sea should part
And show a further Sea—
And that—a further—and the Three
But a presumption be—

Of Periods of Seas—
Unvisited of Shores—
Themselves the Verge of Seas to be—
Eternity—is Those—
