TONIGHT! Is the grand opening of Ad Hoc Art!  It looks amazing and I'm definitely going.  I'm so excited that I've decided to bring my baby AND my mom!  It's a gallery.  It's downtown Minneapolis in that sweet building with the notes painted on the side.  And it has MY art inside.  Lil' old me.  Yippee!

"It's about community, creativity & connections. And the art! Amazing LOCAL art. Help support the local arts scene and have fun while you're at it - music, food, drink, interactive pretension. We'd love to have you (& your friends) both Friday and Saturday eve! Cheers."

So come down for a visit from 5-11pm tonight AND tomorrow night!

Bedroom art for my kiddo.

This week (yes I know it's Friday) I'm starting a new painting for my daughter.  She has a new room to decorate and I've decided to paint something new for her.  She has requested a rainbow rain painting based on this one:

I've decided that Sierra's will be a close up of a girl jumping into the puddle with splashes making up the drops instead of the rain drops.  So I've collected some inspirational photos to help me with the splashing and the boots:

Stay tuned to see how I combine these ideas to make something unique for my kiddo.  
The best part about making art for my family is that it doesn't have to BE anything in particular.  It doesn't have to be marketable.  
It can just be.
What a relief.

Ad Hoc Art Minneapolis

70 dog days of local art in downtown Minneapolis

Ad hoc art is about community. Creativity. Connections. It's about art accessibility and awareness, bridging the gap between Twin Cities artists and patrons. And I get to be a part of it!!
Where: 88 S 10th St, Minneapolis, MN 55403
When: June 22nd-September 2nd 2012
Here's a selection of paper art that I'm dropping of at Ad Hoc Art.  6 canvas paintings will also be tagging along.  I'm pretty excited!
