The Night Market starts this Thursday, downtown. Though I wasn’t able to sign up as a seasonal vendor, I did submit the paperwork to take part as a week to week vendor. I’m planning to be there selling my tote bags, paintings and jewelry. If things go well, then I’ll probably sign up as a seasonal vendor there next year as well.
I’m currently working on a few new items as well. I’ve got two beautiful mandalas painted on acrylic paper and framed in 12×12 frames which will be available on Thursday. I also will be adding some more resin items over the next few weeks.
Things have been busy around the house, so I haven’t been able to get any more videos recorded, but I am planning to sit down and record at some point this week. Please leave a comment if there’s anything you’d like to see on a video.
So, I’m having a bit of a problem sorting out workspace issues. When we moved into the new house, my first thought was to work in the basement where I’d have plenty of room to spread out and nobody would be wandering through while I work. Unfortunately, there’s very little light down there and even with lamps it’s just gloomy.
When it got warm, I moved things out to our enclosed front porch figuring I could take advantage of the nice weather, but mosquitoes and the heat have begun to be a problem, not to mention that I’d have to move when the weather got cold anyway. So now, I’m arranging storage in the dining room so I can work there and just put things away at mealtimes. At least, that will work until I figure out a better option. We’ve talked about putting a floor down in the attic and looking into using it as my studio, but it gets very hot up there as well, so I’m not certain it would work. For the moment, the dining room works well, and I’ll keep working on other options.
I am still working on new paintings and videos, which I will continue posting as I get them finished. My most recent is a multiple mandala piece done in rainbow colors on a black background. I am fairly pleased with how it turned out, though there are a few differences that I’d like to experiment with on later pieces.
It’s been a busy week for me. I’ve been working on several new paintings, as well as my continued efforts to get this blog and other social media things caught up. There’s a third process video on my youtube channel. Please check it out, and while you’re there, subscribe and let me know what sort of videos you’d like to see me make in the future. I’ve got an instagram set up as well, and will be posting my artwork for anyone who would like to follow me there.
My Patreon page has launched, so I will begin posting mandala line art and coloring pages for my patrons. If you’re interested in supporting my projects, please click the button to the right to visit my Patreon page.
