Space Exhibit at Dansville ArtWorks

As you may know I’m letting go of my funk and getting out of my comfort zone, and with that comes pursuing new opportunities…or even certain opportunities again.

A few years ago I had some pieces in a gallery exhibit at Dansville ArtWorks as well as some of my jewelry up for consignment there. It was a great experience, but I never took part in it again. I don’t know why, there was nothing that prevented me from doing it again, I just…didn’t.

I still followed them on Facebook, and I happened to see them post about an exhibit and they were looking for artists.  It was a space theme, and I just so happened to have a piece PERFECT for it. I sent in my application, dropped off my art, and I’m back in the gallery!

My youngest and I went to the opening reception together. My older two kids had opening night of their musical, so my husband attended that as he couldn’t go Saturday (which is when I went), so it was a great time for a date with my little guy!

I swear, it’s so weird seeing my art on a gallery wall. Ryan never made it to see my work at the last exhibit, so he thought it was cool seeing one of his favorite pieces of mine on the wall, too!

Because the reception was on May 3rd, May 4th is Star Wars Day (May the 4th (force) be with you!), and it was a space themed exhibit, they had Darth Vader and Chewbacca there!!!! Ry absolutely loved that, and Darth Vader said he’s his new apprentice.

The exhibit runs through June 29th, and every time you visit you can enter to win a Boba Fett blaster signed by Jeremy Bulloch, the actor who played the original Boba Fett! You can find more information about the gallery and the amazing work they are doing here.

Drawing a Day Challenge 2018: Day 5

This morning, I was so excited. We got a phone call around 5am that there was a snow day, so we had a lazy morning full of snuggles and sleeping in. We cleared the driveway of 12″+ of snow, and while we watched a movie, I worked on my drawing. It was going so well, I was going to not only have it done really early today, but also get the blog post written and scheduled to publish tonight while I was out with some friends, and it was going to be a fantastic day!

Well…you know what they say about plans.

After the movie was done, our youngest (who was home on Tuesday) moved from snuggling up against me, looked at me, and his eyes rolled. I put my hand on his cheek, and it was HOT. I grabbed the thermometer, and boom. 103.3. I grab my phone, ask the hubby to give him Tylenol, and call the doctor’s. It was a flurry of activity, scrambling to get our littlest dude out the door (who didn’t want to leave the comfy couch), get me dressed and presentable, and get on the road after a snow storm to the other doctor’s office half an hour away as our local one wasn’t open due to power outtages.

But we made it. It’s looking like our little has a virus, but we’re waiting on the 24 hour strep test (regular strep test was negative and he tested negative for the flu as well). He’s sleeping next to me on the couch right now, and I rescheduled tonight’s plans because all he wanted was his mama and to watch movies.

And that was more than okay with me.

Thankfully today’s drawing ended up being much easier, smoother, and quicker than I had anticipated because she somehow got finished:

Drawing a Day Challenge: Day #17

I am so surprised today’s drawing got done.

Today I had so many errands to run, food to make, and cleaning to get done. Tomorrow is my youngest kiddo’s family birthday party, and I’m always running around crazy trying to get party prep done in time. Adding anything else to my to-do list is highly frowned upon, even work things.

But, I set aside the time anyway, and I got the drawing done!
