The Ornament Exchange
Well, with much pulling of hair and gnashing of teeth, I finally completed my ornament for this years exchange. It was for the RiveCity Figurative Artists Guild that I am a member of and our Christmas Brunch tradition This years theme was to be based on some art form or ism. Our luncheon is being held in the Cincinnati Art Museums cafe this year. So, I thought this theme was appropriate. At the last minute I finally decided to honor our ancient traditions and do a piece loosely based on a variety of petroglyphs. It is kind of simple but, I really like the way it turned out. It is very totem like in the way it looks.
It's been a busy fall season and I have been one of the lucky artists who have sold a nice amount of work. At both of the Essex Studios art walks I received a lot of great feedback. Nothing inspires an artist more than that. So, I am really inspired to get going on some new things and yes, even a new class is on the horizon. Have a great weekend everyone. Until next time in Codyland.
