We Live Here Now

The Hub-Bub artists, Arielle and Rachel are living downtown for 5 days in a store front on 100 E. Main Street. Their goal is to promote downtown and its small but growing art scene, and to highlight in a unique way what it would be like to live downtown. They are calling the project "We Live Here Now."
I dropped by today to sketch art in the making! Arielle and Rachel are two of four artist participating in the Artists-in-Residence program run by Hub-Bub. Hub-Bub has some great things happening.
Now that "I live here now" it is things like this that has me encourgaged that great things are happening in my old town.

Many Balls to Juggle!

No that isn't a paint brush in my hand.....
Been a while since I've posted a new entry. Still getting use to the additional balls to juggle (website redesign, and blogs) in the arena of promoting my artwork.
Alot has been going on since my last post. The Chapman Cultural Center has officially opened! The City is blessed to has such a wonderful new venue. Check it out! (See my links.)
My watercolor (see the post below) was juried into the SC Watermedia Society Show which is the first show to be in the new Art Museum at the The Chapman Cultural Center. I was honored to get in. My painting is really a humble sketch.
Just getting back from a trip to Boston. What a great City! I was totally inspired and am back home ready to paint some of the sights and people I saw.
