Today I hung my show Hawaiian Holiday, at the new Two Twelve Arts Center. It has moved 2 doors west from the original location. I am lucky to be the first Featured Artist at the new place, so I tried to really make it pop.
I hope you will come to see the show, it starts Tuesday, Feb. 1, until Feb. 28. The best time to come will be the reception, Friday, Feb. 18th, from 7 to 9 p.m.
Seen from the front door.
In the West room are a couple Hawaiian Chickens.
In the East room, a few flowers, and some coffee.
In the dining room are 12 more flowers. I forgot to take pix of a few.

In the upstairs room, are the Art Salad Challenge pieces. While waiting for some to be brought in, I hung a place holder. And the last 4 Hawaiian flowers are here.

Here it is! It has a mask, a snake, alligator, zebras, birds, what more could you want? It's about 6 by 7 feet.
I just finished a large African fabric quilt. This was a big project. I don't have room to take a picture of the whole thing, until I take down a large quilt. I'll post a picture as soon as I can. Number 7.

The idea is to make a picture of what's inside you. Your contents are totally up to you. The media may be fabric or paper. The due date is Monday, Feb 7th at Art Salad class, 6 p.m. at Two Twelve Arts. If you bring it ready to hang, your art will be in the Hawaiian Holiday show, with my challenge pieces.
If you choose to participate, and are not in Art Salad class, please email a picture of your challenge to me, so we can share it. Post a comment to this blog, and I will give the address.
Have fun!

Happy New Year to all. My wish for you is that this year brings more laughs than tears, more success than failures, more friends than ever, and sweet contentment whatever comes. My official item count for the year is 335. (The Hawaiian chicken is not counted, so it may be first this new year.)
Art Salad class is Monday, Jan. 3. at 6:30 p.m.We will be making seed bead rings. You are welcome. The cost is $15, and I supply all the materials for the project. I will bring a huge stash of beads for you to choose. It's easy, fast and fun. Hope to see you.
