I am very excited to see the very first Chree Show out of my head and into such a beautiful gallery. The Chrees Show will be on display June 6 – July 29 at the BAAC Gallery on Main (226 E Main St. Batesville, AR).

The first of many in my future.

Paint Day in Art Alley

Over the weekend I had the exciting job of coordinating a community paint day in Art Alley for Downtown Paragould. This was the kick-off event for what we envision to be an ongoing and ever changing mural work for our local downtown. It was lovely to see groups of all ages come out to help paint a 90ft wall of EIGHT murals all in one day. I never would have dreamed we would have finished so fast. We finished all the designs in about 3 hours. Yes, you read that right, THREE hours. Of course, our Main Street Paragould board (which I am on) worked to have everything prepped, backgrounds painted and designs drawn out. I never would have dreamed we would have SO MANY great volunteers.

Little Debbie Mural Commission

Was asked to paint this Little Debbie mural on the side of a little renovated old store in our little town here in Arkansas. She’s a big girl, but I was able to finish it in a weekend with a whole lot of help from my mom and my dad helped a little. She really stands out in the sleepy neighborhood on S. 4th Street in Paragould, Arkansas.

New Sigil Stamp

I carved a little stamp of my personal sigil to use on the backs of my framed art and I just love it. It reminds me of the stone one I had made as a seal in Korea, but I am too afraid to use that one because I don’t want to mess it up. Heh.
