The annual Petoskey Gallery Walk will be held June 21st, not the 23rd which I had previously thought. Eleven galleries will be participating and the walk will end with fabulous food and entertainment at Stafford's Perry Hotel. All the galleries will be donating artwork for a prize drawing.
Yesterday I took seven of my older pieces to Northern Michigan Artist's Market for a total of nine on display. I included a mix...one colored pencil piece, two watercolors, three graphite pieces and one print. When everything had been delivered and put into inventory I promptly went home and took a three hour nap. *huge sigh of relief* I had no idea I was stressing so much but apparently I was. I'm all better now.
While at the gallery I had a chance to chat with Martin Scott, one of the gallery owners. They're in the process of updating their website so buyers will be able to purchase their artist's work directly from the new site. As Martha would say, this could be a very good thing.
I finally started this one...my peacock orchid. I'm posting an update on my progress so far. I think the worst is over...the center is completed! I keep telling myself I need to work in a much larger format. Cutting away all those tiny bits and pieces is a bit nerve wracking.
