Refers to the act of hiring someone to execute a certain work of art or set of artworks.
So I took my first plein air plunge today and met a fellow artist friend, Miriam, for lunch and sketching. She and I are are also doing a mural so we did have a little business to discuss too. Afterwards we exchanged journals and talked about teaching classes and she got me a gig teaching class, once a week, to do art journaling! How exciting!...well, if anyone shows up it will be exciting!! lol
So as we were sitting there sketching, talking and having general fun the owner of the Jongo Java came over and sat down with us. He offered Miriam and I, a 38' wall inside the store to display our work for the month of August! PLUS a grand opening party with free beer and wine....really? Have you seen how LARGE a 38' wall is?? lol After leaving that afternoon I went and ordered 30x30 canvases....so I will be finally taking my art to the next level! This is something I have always wanted to do...check off the bucket list!!
And of course, a picture of the front of the restaurant, so you can compare my drawing to reality! I cleaned up the front a bit, it's way too cluttered for my taste. This was the view from where I was seated.
So, teaching classes starting in June and a HUGE show in August.....thud.
