"Grand Hotel"

11"x15" mixed media on paper
Today, I finished this little guy and resumed working on the pieces that need to get finished.

This cup has a splash of coffee on it and a few other mixed media items. For example, there is golf leaf,  glitter and some kind of screen stuff (not sure where it came from anymore) and layers of paint, stained papers and pieces of financial charts.

The piano's will be out this Thursday and I am working on putting a little video of last Saturday's Piano Party.

Have a great day!

The map of piano locations and the back of "Out Loud in the City"

42"x55" mixed media on canvas to be mounted on the back of the piano.
Painted for the back of the piano, so it can be experienced from all sides, this piece of canvas I taped to the floor of my studio and just had fun.

A map of all the piano locations through out the Indianapolis area can be found here on the Women's Fund GO Ahead & Play Map page.

Also check out this little video to hear and see more about this project.
Have a good day!

7 Paintings for "Walk Away With Art"

"Stairway to Heaven"   10.5" x 10" Mixed media on paper
"Bailey and Me"   10.5" x 9" Mixed media on paper
"Martini Moulin Rouge"   10.5" x 9" Mixed media on paper
"Orange Twist"   10.5" x 9" Mixed media on paper
"Alan Harpertini"   10.5" x 9" Mixed media on paper
"Clock Work"   10.5" x 9" Mixed media on paper - SOLD
"Martini Magic"   10.5" x 9" Mixed media on paper
These are the seven paintings I have in the Raymond James Stutz Art Gallery for the "Walk Away With Art" show the month of July.

The idea is this; there are seven artists and each artist submitted seven pieces of art to be sold at $100 each. Patrons buy a ticket here and then on July 26th at the "Walk Away With Art" reception numbers are drawn and the first number gets to make the first pick. And if you are a couple you can buy a ticket for $150 and pick two. Wow, to me that's a pretty good deal.

Anyway, I finished these last week along with the piano's finishing touches.  : )

Have a great day.

Piano Update July 3rd - Angela this is for you!

A couple of images of the piano, still in the shop. For some reason and I don't know why (fatigue maybe) I didn't take a photo after I painted the other leg. Hmm.... I do have an idea so that you all can see the whole piano, but that will have to wait a bit too. I'll tell you this, it has to do with taking a video.

Happy Fourth of July tomorrow!
