The Plans Begin

I am excited to announce that I was accepted to show my art in the 'Local Color Studio Tour' this year. I finally found the courage to apply. (Thanks in part to a year long art class I've been taking by Sebastian Michaels.) I finally feel focused again and this class has been just what I've needed. Unfortunately the others are taking a back seat for a bit.

I was accepted on my 'digital art' entries so I won't be able to show any of my normal photography. The 'studio' that I will be at is a private home and there will be 6 other artists there. One I know fairly well and a couple I've met before. The nerves are already getting stirred up but I have lots of time to get everything I need lined up and finished.
New business cards, postcards to send to friends as invites, display set ups...

I'm trying my hand at mounting my prints on wood panels and finishing them out with matt medium or possibly encaustic wax. It will be fun to experiment for sure. My first trial is nearly done and so far it's looking good.

This will probably be about 90% mobile art. I hope to have a small display showing the progression of a print so I don't have to try and explain it. A picture is worth thousand words right?


  1. it all sounds great Roxi - I'm sure your art will shine! Once you get this first show under your belt, the next one will be so much easier...and yes, I am confident there will be more!

  2. That's wonderful Roxi! The prints on wood panels sounds great, I cross my fingers for inspiration and that the preparations for your exhibition will process smoothly!

  3. Hope you get to sell lots and get commissions !

  4. Good luck! I love this flower image! I can imagine this piece being mounted on wood with encaustic wax :-)

  5. How wonderful, Roxi! Congratulations! They are in for a treat.

  6. Congratulations! Well deserved, your digital art is amazing. I am so glad you found just the right inspiration to help you get where you needed to be.


I read and appreciate all your comments. Have a blessed day!
