All ready for SAIC’s Spring Art Sale tomorrow!

Along with all the other chaos going on right now, I decided to take on the challenge of a mini show; I’m currently showing my work for the next few months at a bakery that just opened! Not something I would usually do, but hey, why not right? It all turned out great! The work will be up until around Labor Day.

Crunch Time

Hello!

So as the semester is coming to a close (a measely 4 weeks remain) I have a lot of different projects going on. Along with finals, I’ve been preparing for the SAIC Spring Art Sale! Next weekend the school’s ballroom will be open to the public to come and see student’s work. I wish all of you could come out and see, but obviously I’m not exactly a short drive away. I’ll make sure to post pictures!¬†

Recap

I’ve been dropping the ball on this blog lately, I apologize for that.
Things have been going really well this far. My work is starting to add up, but I’m excited about where all the research I’m doing could take me. My gathering particles science and art class has got me reading book after book about different artists that study science and how it influences their work. I’m looking forward to where this research takes me! A few projects have been done so far, but mainly exercises to see what can happen later on. Fashion photo is going well, you can see on my art page some of the portraits I’ve been doing, but a lot of the shoots I’m a part of pertain to the catalogue the fashion department had out, so I don’t have “dibs” on those photos quite yet. But I will. Looking forward to expanding my portfolio horizons. Printmedia is treating me well, I’ve got a few plates going at once. Just finished an edition of one of the plates I’ve been working on and I’ll post good images on my page once I have my critique in a few weeks (accompanied with an artist statement). So much going on. What else. My Freedom of Anthropology class is good. Just turned in my first paper pertaining a “live event” or just a situation where there are people, and analyzing their actions and how it all has to do with freedom. I wrote about my experience in a pet shop. I’ve never written a paper like that before, so we’ll see how it goes. Art history is also fine. (I feel like I’m beginning to repeat myself). The boyfriend is doing well, he doesn’t live up the street but we make it work, we both have our time to get work done but we also get to spend a lot of time together on the weekends etc. We went to Madison Wisconsin together a few weeks ago, that was fun! I had never been before and he has friends going to school there so it was neat to see the campus and to finally eat real cheese curds. Looking to post some photos of that mini adventure later on. Oh and I stood on a frozen lake for the first time! I might have been more excited that necessary with that one. :)
Hope all is well!

Last night my boyfriend and I went to see phantom of the opera. I’ve always loved this musical, but it was an incredible experience finally seeing it live. The effects were amazing, fire, mist, disappearing acts, you name it. I highly suggest going if you have the chance!

Some photos from my trip to St. Louis! Had a blast catching up with Darrious.

Just a few pictures of life since I returned home. Pretty slow around here (mainly due to weather) - but it’s been nice catching up with friends and family!

The show went so well last night. We had a great turn out! I also sold one of my pieces!
Thank you to everyone who has supported me all these years. I really appreciate everything my friends and family have done for me, I feel truly blessed.

My flight home is December 23rd and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone after Christmas!
Hope everyone is doing well.

Liz.
