The first weekend of the tour was so fun! I got to see a lot of dear friends, and meet new ones. Connecting with people is always the best part of shows for me. I'm not a great salesperson, but I love meeting people!
If you live in Austin, and have a chance to studio hop next weekend (May 20-21), please make Blue Genie Art Bazaar one of your stops! We have 47 artists; pretty much something for everyone! A real treat for me was getting to see sculptor Dana Younger live demo, using my friend and fellow artist Rebecca Wood as his model. Blue Genie will be hosting a party on May 20, from 6 - 9 pm.
This commission of a mother and a baby zebra is just in time for Mother's Day! So many species besides humans form family bonds. Zebra mothers take their offspring away from the herd to bond with them, which makes them more vulnerable to predators. My client (a young mother) provided the reference photo, which I found so heartwarming.
