I just moved into an art studio in Magnuson Park that’s been twenty years in the making! It’s such an honor to be a part of this new community. I’m looking forward to building my career in this space.
There will be an open house this Sunday from 2pm – 5pm. I’m on the ground floor. I believe that at least half of the studio artists will be participating. It’s a great opportunity to see this wonderful space the city has provided for artists, and to see some local work!
Use the gatehouse entrance to Magnuson Park at NE 74th Street. Turn left on 63rd Ave NE. The studios are in the first building on the right.
A pencil, pen, chalk and oil pastel sketch. It’s a bit Blade Runner inspired. I believe all but one sign is from a street in Kowloon – which I visited long ago… It’s taken me two weeks to finish this and manage to get it scanned and posted. I can’t wait until my kids are back in school! 😛
Expect to see more of me in September. I have several paintings to share! In the meantime, look for me, HeatherUnderground on Instagram.
Thanks for stopping by! If you like my work, please consider subscribing to my blog (top right, on my home page)
In high school and college I studied Russian, and lived in Russia as an exchange student multiple times. Those experiences have stayed with me and influenced me in many ways. I even sign my paintings with my name in Russian: XE3EP, pronounced “heh – zher” as there is no “th” sound in Russian. I love communist propaganda posters. After I finished this pencil sketch, I attempted to color it using my rudimentary digital art skills…. I’m pretty happy with the results. Instead of “Workers of the World, Unite!” it’s “Artists of the World, Unite” which we all should, I think! 🙂
In 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!
