Think Outside The Box!





At the North River Arts Society, they have a fun event that's coming up.  Artists get an 8x8 inch square of foamboard and they have to think Outside The Box (or OTB) when they make a piece of art on it.  The pieces are not signed, rather they are assigned a number, and throughout August people can bid via Silent Auction on them.  So I was working on mine, and there's NO WAY I'm putting it up here, but I'll show you my brainstorm pieces - and my submission is inspired by one of these.  

The Opening is open to the public (and a good time will be had by all, I assure you!) and is the 7th at 7 p.m.   Join us if you can!

Happy Birthday to my son, Conor!

  10. Oh oh... ammunition. Think I may be in trouble. Better gear up my arsenal. (what in the world are in the boxes?)
    What's tomorrow going to bring Kelley?

  12. What a cool/fun event...love all of your pieces.

    So relieved to see you've stocked up on D-Ammo. This could get ugly, as in stomach aches,lethargy and the desire to act like Barney Fife.
    But beautifully painted! I like the way the boxes are echoed in the squares of the table cloth. So creative!

  14. Happy belated birthday to Conor, Kelley!

    I like the abstract pattern of the first one.

    OTB sounds like a fun idea. You better show us your submission when it's done!
