Bold Brush painting contest

Hey peeps, check out this Bold Brush painting contest. I've got a piece entered, and then you can flip through and see a whole bunch of work by other artists.

Maple Valley Benefit

October 14th, the Maple Valley Creative Arts Center will be having a benefit to raise money for the Arts Center.

Details here

I'll have a painting I did last year that will be auctioned off, as well as another painting I just did earlier this month. Here's a glimpse of the painting to be auctioned off with the rest of the artists who have donated paintings to the Arts Center.

Painting is 12''x12''. I'll also be there, doing another painting at the Arts Center. Hope to see some of you there!

Risk it for the biscuit!

Hey peeps,

Just a quick reminder, don't be making choices out of fear! Only you can know if you are or not, and I would implore you not to! If you're not willing to take a risk, you won't be able to get that reward! So go out there and try something! Risk that canvas you have sitting around! Try something new! Say hello to a new person! Be more honest with people than you have been yet. Part of being an artist is to be vunerable... we put ourselves and our work out there. So, don't be afraid to get hurt; it'll happen anyway. Go get that reward, make powerful work, and become a powerful person!

What the odds don't know is that this isn't a math test.

Don't "take care". Take risks!
