Since getting my FFFFOUND account I've gotten a little obsessive with the photo collecting. I constently post (from all my favorite blogs and sites) whenever inspiration strikes. It has become an amazing tool for bookmarking my favorite images from all over - not to mention finding new ones.

Here are some of my recent favorites:

It's delightful discovering new artists and blogs too! I love the suggestions under the "New for you" button....they are pretty much spot on (...except for a week they thought I was a gay man. The pictures were amazing - just, ahem, a lot of men)!

Spokane for....

Darcy Drury (a most fantastic local artist) and I will be collaborating on a "LIVE" mural painting in the "Pit" at NYNE - for the Spokane for Japan show this Friday! Come out in support of Japan, and have a seriously amazing time! This Friday is the first of a two part event. The second will be May 28th at the Lincoln Center.

Next, the Great Spokane Art Party May 7th..."it is the antidote to the typical silent auctions, wine tastings and benefit dinners. It is an engaging evening of wine, hors d'oeuvres, camaraderie and hands-on art exploration for adults." The event is in support of Blueprints for Learning...which works to improve the quality of early childcare and education in Spokane. Check out all the amazing projects with local artists as instructors: clay tiles, mono printing, paper making, fused glass pendents ...to name a few. I will be teaching "Mixed Media Illustrations on Wood"! I can't wait.

And third! I can finally share with you the design I made for the INBA Outreach fundraiser. They are printing it on reusable bags filled with goodies and selling them to raise money for their annual scholarship. I was so excited when Devon asked me to do it! To kick off Pride week they are also having an art show and there is a call for entries going on now (you can find it here) for any GLBTQ and A(llies)'s.

I am back now (without blogging for what seems like forever) - but it was all for good. I have some super exiting projects in the works - images coming soon! Have a most lovely week!...and hope to see you Spokanites Friday!
