Watching a Painting Grow.
Have you ever stumbled upon a work of art that left you wondering to yourself "How did the artist do that?" Although we like to make guesses as to how the artist might have made their work, many pieces would be so much better understood if you could just view a time-lapse video of the piece actually being made (which I hope to create in the coming year!).
Those of you who frequently visit my facebook page know that I enjoy posting in-progress and completed photos of my most recent works of art! I find that the process of making the piece is just as, if not more interesting than the finished piece. My process of making art is messy. It involves a lot of risk-taking, experimenting, and exploring. Rarely do pieces turn out as I originally imagined them and, although in-progress photos do give you some insight into my process as an artist, they can in no way compare to a live viewing of art being made.
Next Friday, June 26th from 6-9pm, I invite you to a very unique event--my first LIVE artmaking event, hosted by Outnumbered Gallery in Littleton, Colorado. For this event, I will be stepping away from the comfort of my studio, to share my creative process, as messy as it may be at times, with the public! I am very excited to be able to have this opportunity, and hope you will join me for a special evening at the art gallery! Hope to see you there!
