Like my new motto? Lauren Strom art to make you happy.
That's all I want to do; make art that makes you happy!
Art-A-Whirl preparations have started up. I placed 10 orders last week for art supplies, picture frames, hardware, packaging materials, office supplies, postcards and so on. When you buy art from an artist you aren't just paying for the time and materials it took to create it. You pay for the planning, the painting, the frame, the wire, the labels, the paper to wrap it up in, and the studio in which it was created. Thank you to everyone who will pay for all my orders with the art they buy at Art-A-Whirl.
Speaking of AAW prepare to be blown away this spring. I've done a boat load of new styles of art about which I am incredibly proud. I have a new series of framed fat birds based on children's book authors. I created another new series of uplifting graphic prints, hand-drawn and printed in my studio.
For those who haven't yet experienced Art-A-Whirl/don't know what I'm talking about let me walk you through it. Art-A-Whirl is the largest open studio event in Minnesota... possible second or third largest in the country. This year May 17-19 all the studios across northeast minneapolis will open their doors to the public to come in, explore, buy and most importantly build lasting relationships. I hope to make some friends.
