For the very first time, I am participating in a huge Austin wide show called EAST. I am excited yet very nervous.  Why? Because I am showing my work with a lot of bigwigs. May they be kind to me.

The piece that you see here is titled Rustic. It is an encaustics piece with rusted cardboard and some string. It is one of the 7 pieces that will be displayed at a gallery. I may end up dropping off some more pieces if they ask for it.

This weekend, the entire east Austin will turn into a chain of galleries. I will be volunteering talking to artists, patrons and even doing a demo of encaustics with found objects. I am a little nervous about that but super excited about seeing artwork by various artists.

This event is really BIG. If you don't believe me, check out the website.

And wish me luck!

PS: sorry for the poor quality of the photo. I recently got a Mac but haven't installed proper software to edit/crop photos.

Your work is wonderful and I can't wait to attend. It's going to be so much fun. An art-infused weekend of fun events, I can't wait.

Sounds like a cool event, and I really like this has a nice industrial quality to it. Good Luck! Save me some wine and cheese!

@Carol: Thanks so much for all your help and support! I am sure that we will have a blast! Can't wait either. Your work looks fantastic!

@Mythos: This is my first time but it does sound like a lot of fun! Glad you like this piece! It is slightly different from my bright, bright pieces. We need to do a project together!

You know, artists don't know what they are doing half the time. They just make stuff. Somebody comes along, and says, "That reminds me of my aunt's false teeth." (I got that once...) It didn't have anything to do with false teeth to me. But at that point, it is their own Rorschach moment, and if they buy the piece, it's ok with me. The world is crazy. Have fun.

Mythos: You are so right. At least I don't know what I am doing half the time. I have an idea what I want to do but then it art takes over and has its own life:) I let it and just have fun.
