Here it goes, my first "blog" post. I should start by saying that this is a space where I will share what is happening in my studio and discussing Art-Mom-Life. It might spiral into my love for things outside of the "Art-World" (*cough, CrossFit, cough, cooking*) but I will try to keep it under control.
COVID-19, aka "Rona", aka "Corona Virus" is taking over the world right now. We are all in self-quarantine mode and practicing some serious social distancing. I don't need to go into the details because Rona has already taken over everyone's news feeds, stories, emails, texts, phone calls, brains and life as we know it.
What I will tell you is that Rona ruined my first appearance at Superfine Art Fair. I was supposed to show at their event this April and obviously it was cancelled. This is and was a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. I have been painting several hours a night, every night, even after working as a graphic designer all day to get paintings ready for this show for the past six months.
I am in no way upset with Superfine, they have postponed the show until next April, 2021. Cancellation was absolutely necessary for them and all other events right now. I am just super bummed I won't be able to show my paintings to the world outside of my studio. And truth be told, I thought I would sell some paintings. BUT, this has motivated me to re-do my entire website and set up an official shop for potential buyers and collectors. I am really excited about this process and can't wait to keep posting more updates as my shop and art practice grows.
