Art After Dark this Friday. The concept in general is so cool ... to have the opportunity to enjoy music and art together for an evening and I was honored to be invited to participate.
I will have my large, abstract acrylic paintings with me. I am getting back into my foundations, and painting and drawing often again. Of course, I am not giving up photography, I love it, but it has been fantastic to be delving back into these other forms of creative expression. I took off the spring term from teaching, just to have this kind of opportunity to explore my own projects, and I am loving it. I can get so lost in the colors ... hours pass by before I touch back with reality.
I will also be painting while at the event on Friday. I have the canvas all prepped and I am really excited to see where the evening takes my brush. The music, the interactions, they will all touch the canvas. And I wanted everyone to have the chance for this type of experience, so I am setting up an art table so those attending can create their own works of art. I might have a couple of surprises along with me, too ...
E. M. Spencer will be there playing their music. I have been listening to them on line and can't wait to hear them in person!
All in all, it should be a great night ... if you are in the DC area, I hope that you will come on out and enjoy it with us.
