Arts in the Park: The Poster

I was truly honored when I was asked to provide artwork for the 2017 Arts in the Park Poster.  I don’t just make jewelry.  I do lots of other creative things as well.  The jury selected one of my favorite puppy pastels.

Honestly, I have a love/hate relationship with the pastel medium.  It’s a very unforgiving medium in my opinion.  You can’t make one mistake because there is really no good way to erase or go over anything.  But when I’m having “pastel luck” (which is what I call it when something actually works out well) the result is really cool.   And this piece was truly the result of one of those “pastel luck” moments.

Arts in the Park this year is Saturday, April 22nd from 10AM-5PM.  I'll be there along with many other talented artists and many much-appreciated patrons.  Hope to see you there.
