April 26,2011..ETSY site!!!

Good news..I finished putting some art on Etsy and sold a piece this morning!!! Wow that was fast. Here is hoping it wasn't a fluke.
It has been snowing off and on today...YUCK
I found out about a public art project today for our local SLC alternative newspaper...The City Weekly. They wanted 10 artists to paint,decorate, create art with one of their metal newspaper boxes that sit in public places.
So I emailed the director and asked for the info. She had me email her some photos of my art..which I did right away..and then she said yes, arrange to pick up the box at their warehouse!!! All 10 will be featured as part of the Salt Lake Art Festival! There will be press and videos made! That is a big 3 day festival that is juried. So I am stoked..now I have to come up with some designs and see if I can implement them. The only rules are no nudes,duh, the box has to open so papers can be retrieved and the name City Weekly has to be somewhere in the design. I am thinking of adding metal forms to it..we shall see..I can't stop thinking about it...I had a hard time concentrating on the drive to and from the grocery store and then went on a bit of a binge and spent more than I planned...head in the clouds!
Tomorrow I have a phone job interview with a woman in Tuscon, Arizona. She will interview me for a retail clerk job at the Timpanogos Cave National Monument which is just up the road and canyon so close to my home! There is a wonderful cave full of stalagtites and stalagmites that is way up the mountain. The office and store are at the foot of the trail. It is a temporary job..end of May to Sept. but could be fun. I love our canyon. So I include a photo of the piece I sold..before it is shipped to Virginia, a photo of the American Fork Canyon from my yard and maybe something else! ok there is a drawing I did dedicated to an injured fawn I found up the canyon, "Nest of Thief" is sold, I thought this was the canyon but it is of my horse in the trees,so the one with the lovely clouds is my canyon! Have a great day
