...playing a little catch up on my blog...here is a summary of the first part of November...
On November 1st John and I attended a fancy private party at the Lighthouse Art Center in Tequesta. I donated a piece for their D'Art for Art event (November 8th) which gave me the invitation for the Artists Appreciation and Collector Party. I made a second, smaller piece for this event...hopefully it will sell!
Here is a link to a short video of the part...John and I were grubbing out, the food was delicious! And there was such a good variety of art! (http://youtu.be/F7eD3OiyzZw)
Day of the Dead
We left from Tequesta and drove to Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery in Lake Worth for the closing reception of the Day of the Dead Group Show. I am already thinking of what I want to make for the next show in December!
I wanted to mention my latest DYI mini-project that I utilized for the above events. I am a little neurotic about having the same thing on for events. Its weird, I know. If I can at least change up my accessories, especially if I am wearing a basic black dress then I am happy, and my #OCPDartist inside calms down a bit. To handle the two art events on the same day I paired a black metal necklace I purchased from a local shop (I think it was under $14) with a long black dress. Then I used black wire to make two mini 'hangers' to simply attach a black polymer clay skull (encrusted with rhinestones, of course!) to the necklace. (Shown below without the skull in #1 and with the skull in #2) I made this skull a while back with my friend Jess,during one of our polymer clay baking play-dates. You could do the same with a fancy button or pin, or with several of them. Just a thought.
If I get a chance, I will do a quick tutorial on the polymer clay jewelry pieces with some ideas for how to use them...
wait...more DOD! (well, kind of!)
Last of the weekend's events, the ArtFest at El Sol in Jupiter. This was my first artist festival in a while and the weather was perfect...I had my Fridas, my Day of the Dead pieces and good friends all right there.
At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.
