Special Invitation

Hello Dear Art Lovers!

I have been invited to participate in Saturday Night Live Art Shows on March 27th.

You may recall that last year I was a part of a group of artists that went on Social Media on Saturday to talk about our art! Artists joined this movement from all over the world! My friend Booke Harker started the idea.
 
March 27, 2021 represents one year since the inception of this awesome social plan—bringing art to exactly were people are hanging out these days—on Social Media. Specifically on Facebook and Instagram. Although a few artists also use YouTube.
 
I will “Go Live” on Instagram on March 27 at 6PM PST. Please join me! Ask questions, make fun of me, make me laugh, or whatever. I am excited to celebrate and talk about my art—with you!
 
Here is the funny thing. When I was invited I immediately said YES, I’d love to join. I thought about what art I’d like to talk about. I snapped a picture of me with my art. Then, after I sent in the picture above—the work I was planning on talking about…. I realized that poop, I would NOT be in my studio on March 27th! And this painting lives in my studio right now! (Unless you’d like to purchase her!)

Drats!

Sooooo, my alternate plan is that I will be talking about my art, but the work I will show will be a surprise, because I will be in California where I have work hanging on the walls, but not the one pictured above called, Crowning Glory. Also, it is a rather large 36 x 36 inch painting so I will not be bringing it with me that weekend!
Mark you calendars.

I will Go Live to talk about my Art on Instagram on March 27 at 6PM PST.

Art for the local hospital.

Yesterday, on April 4, 2019 I dropped off 3 pieces of art for a local hospital art show.

“Dogs, Cats, and Other Pets With Their People or Without.”

I thought this was a cleaver show theme. I thought I had zero work to enter this show. Then I took a look through my inventory and interpreted the theme my way!

The art I submitted is shown below.

Suzanne Gibbs ©2016, Development Perfect, paper, pen, watercolor, 4.75 x 4.75 inches, $185
Suzanne Gibbs ©2016, Self-Care Free, paper, pen, watercolor, 4.75 x 4.75 inches, $185
Suzanne Gibbs ©2016, Alive! LOOK, paper, pen, watercolor, 4.75 x 4.75 inches, $185

Honestly! Who says grasshoppers can’t be pets! I used to catch them when I was young. I also used to catch snails and spiders! For the snails I’d set up races and see who would win on an imaginary race track.

I am free to sell these works, and they can be shipped as soon as the show closes. Please contact me here if you are interested. I am willing to consider a bundle price for all three!

Opening is Sunday, April 6, 2019 from 1:00 – 3:00 at the Southern Coos Hospital in Bandon, Oregon.

Suzanne Gibbs, ©2019, Alive! LOOK, paper, pen, watercolor, 4.75 x 4.75 inches, $185 Framed.

Final show date is Saturday June 29, 2019.

Do That Thing

Do that thing you have been putting off.

Do That Thing.

I have been putting off making work for a solo gallery show I have coming up in July. So you know what I did when the gallery contacted me and asked if I’d like the space in May as well as in July?

I said YES, sure!

A bad idea? Maybe.

I am doing my thing. Too much work, too often, without enough time or planning. However, I am pretty sure everything will turn out fine. Because I am doing my thing!

Would you like to see sample work? Yes? Sure, here:

Each of these drawings are drawings based entirely off of paintings I created in the last few years. For example:

drawingandpainting

Top image is an encaustic painting on panel, bottom is an abstract drawing based on the painting.

Here is a sample of work in progress:

Encaustic painting, Heap O' and the beginnings of the Abstract drawing of the painting. And yes, my studio couch to!

Encaustic painting, Heap O’ and the beginnings of the Abstract drawing of the painting. And yes, my studio couch to, as a support and drawing table!

 

In conclusion, if you are anything like me, and procrastination is easier than doing the work that is most worth doing. Take a risk!

Do That Thing.

My show is at the RAA Gallery in Eureka CA. May 23 – June 15.
