Hi! I had a fun weekend. How bout you?
Saturday was spent downtown, vending my art at the Portland Saturday Market. I was very very pleased that there was no rain for the day, yay! I brought along my current "work in progress" painting and got a lot done on it, check it out:
Its not done yet....but getting very close. Not only did it give me something to do while sitting there from 10-5...painting live in my booth drew a lot of interest from the crowd. people were very excited to see some art in progress and i had fun talking with them about my mediums, my process and my inspirations. I think I will have to bring something to paint more often when I am down there, it was so much fun!
People at the market seemed very much drawn to "The Mistress and the Orb" and were asking if they could buy a print of her...thus I have decided to release prints of the original pen and ink drawing for sale:
5"x7" High quality digital print

And now for some super awesome amazingness:
"Sri Yantra Ebru"
original 100%handmade four layer acrylic and ink ebru(turkish paper marbling) monoprint on kozo paper by Danny Rodriguez.
He contuies to amazing me each time he does a new Ebru project. Interested to see what he will make next.
But It isnt always all work, work, create, work...I swear! On Sunday we made it a point to not get out of bed until 10:00am, and that felt great. Despite sleeping in I got all my house chores done including cleaning our patio out and planting some morning glory seeds(I know some people consider them a weed but they are my fave flower!) Today after work I intend to go on the hunt for some various flower seeds + basil and chamomile seeds. I think i need some more soil also. I am looking forward to some warmer weather so that I can hang out on my patio again, drink, tea, play with my cat and read some books. I have a small lil space to grow things but i try to utlize it anyhow.
Here are some photos from last years lil patio garden:
So, have you begun your garden yet? If so what are you planting?
Much love and light,
