Heather Carr Alice in Wonderland Piano Flood of TearsIn case you missed my previous post, my Alice in Wonderland piano is on display this month at the Richmond Beach Library in Shoreline, WA.  And it’s outside, so you can actually play it!  😛  There are 11 pianos on display along streets and in the parks of Shoreline, WA.  A list of the locations is now available.  You can download a map and read more about the pianos here.

The pianos will be on display for all of August.  Hope you can stop by and check them out!

It’s Back! Alice in Wonderland Piano @ The Richmond Beach Library in Shoreline, WA

Looking mad as a hatter…

Piano Time in Shoreline, WA is back!  While I didn’t have time to commit to painting a new piano this year, I’m proud to say that my Alice in Wonderland piano is out of hiding and has found the perfect home.  For all of August, Wonderland will be on display at the Richmond Beach Library in Shoreline.  I can’t think of a more appropriate home than a library!  Best of all, it’s art you can touch.  Visitors are welcome to come and play the piano. Unlike my cat, this toothy-grinned beast won’t bite…

Here is a link to all my Alice themed work, including progress photos from painting the piano: http://heatherunderground.com/category/alice-in-wonderland/

The Richmond Beach Library is located at 19601 21st Ave N.W., Shoreline, 98177

I’m heading to Portland later this week for 5 days of painting with Jesse Reno.  This will be an advanced workshop in his studio.  I can’t wait!  It will be the third workshop I’ve taken with him.  I love his teaching style and painting philosophies.  

I’m looking forward to posting new work and photos from the trip.  See you all soon!

By the way, I will be participating in the Wedgwood Art Festival this year.  More on that next week.  

 

Portrait of an Artist – Pencil Sketch

pencil sketch portrait heather carr Here’s a drawing that I did last week.  Just a wee sketch in pencil on paper, to which I added a bit of a digital vignette… It’s a portrait of my friend and fellow artist, Sean Fleming.  Sean is a contemporary fine artist in Dundee, Scotland.  His work is mainly figurative, expressed both as paintings and drawings. Check out his art page on Facebook or his website.

Here’s a little peek at his work – (images are cropped):

Lost in My Mind

Heather Carr painting acrylic lost in my mind girl lady woman sad melancholy thoughts daydream I finally got a decent photograph of this piece… so here it is!  Lost in My Mind, a self-portrait.  I finished it in late winter.  My inspiration was a sketch I found by Klimt.  The painting is acrylic on a 30″ square canvas.

“You Know Nothing, Jon Snow…” From My Sketchbook

I sketched this with a crappy old marker and a drawing pen.  I didn’t draw it in pencil first, which is why I ended up looking like an old lady with a giant nose… ah well, an excuse to draw this again…  🙂
