Art Sale – Saturday 11/11!

This Saturday, come see the *real* Best of the Northwest! 😉 Entry to our show is free. 😃 We are in the building just beyond the *ehem* Northwest art show – just look for our yellow signs! 👩🏼‍🎨🔶

Many styles will be represented in the show, we are a group of artists who paint together (past and present) once a week.

I’ve been working on some fun, smaller pieces, including some Stranger Things ornaments. Can’t wait to share them with you!

Come to Seattle’s Wedgwood Art Festival this weekend!

Spray paint on fingers bright colors fingerprintsHi Y’all!  I’ve been so incredibly busy since I returned from Portland, trying to get ready for the Wedgwood Art Festival.  Those are my fingers from Thursday afternoon.  See, very busy!  😛

Now I’m loopy because I still have so much to do before 10 am…. If you live in Seattle, please come by and say hi.  My booth is in the back of the space, along 36th Ave.  There’ll be lots of good art, good food, and good music!  I’ll have lots of prints for sale, as well as some original paintings.

Here’s some of the details:

July 13 & 14, 10 am – 5 pm, on the Hunter Farms Tree Lot at the corner of 35th Ave. NE and NE 80th St.

I’ve taken over the Wedgwood Ale House in Seattle!  Stop by and have a peek.  I’ve got big, wild works in the bar, and smaller, happy, colorful pieces in the family dining room. All work is for sale, minus one, which already sold…. So come in, have a beer, and buy a painting!  I’ll look that ^^^ happy! 😉

The show will be up, I believe, until the 6th of April, 2013

The Emotional Stages of Accepting an Art Commission

Heather Carr photo comic 2012Woo-hoo! I just finished up 3 commissioned painting last night.  Now I just need to photograph them…  It was really nice to get the job, but I’m also anxious to get back to work on some ideas floating around in my head.

l love playing around with self-portraits and was inspired late last night, after a week of too little sleep, to put this together.  I know I’m not the only one who feels commission work is an emotional roller coaster, but in the end, a fun ride.

See you next week!  xoxo

p.s. – ugh, just caught that my first version had a typo… now corrected!  whew!

Free Facebook Cards at MOO! A Good Deal for Starving Artists…

Heather Carr 2012

I love MOO’s MiniCards.  They are great business cards that don’t feel pretentious.  Also, they’re inexpensive and you can have a different design on every card.  I really like that since I paint in many different styles.  Anyway… I was placing a new order a few weeks back, and saw that they had these things called Facebook Cards.  Right now they are FREE, so I had to try them.  They use your cover photos from Facebook, plus your profile pic.  So I uploaded a bunch of cover photos, and got to ordering.

I think they’d be great for handing out at art retreats… I turned them into business cards by adding my URL in the message area on the back.  Here’s how they turned out:

I think they are pretty neat.  You can get to the Facebook offer here.

Also, if you’ve never ordered from MOO, and you want to help out this starving artist, place your first order through this link and get 10% off, and help me earn free cards. 🙂

On Sunday, I’m participating in The Color Run with my daughter.  I’m not, not, not a runner.  Not even close.  Mostly, I  wanted to do it for the chance to take pictures – people will be drenched in color while they run.  Hopefully it will be a blast… though getting up early on Mother’s Day? I’m not sure what I was thinking there…

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

I’m working on three commissioned paintings at the moment.  Two 3 foot squares, and one 4 foot square.  I love the early stages when I can just play and drip paint!  They have already evolved out of this stage now, I’ll share more pics after I work on them tomorrow…

Hope you have a great weekend!  See you next week.
