The second is a solo show:
Artist Statement: Pretty little injured girls, candy coated mushrooms, cupcakes, sweet dreams and nightmares. The world is a scary place full of wolves and pitfalls. If you can pluck up enough courage to wander in the forest there are treasures and beautiful things to be found there. You will gain strength from suffering and learn perhaps one of the greatest lessons, sometimes cake is worth the cavity.
With special guest DJ Corporate spinning tunes!
I have one or two pieces in the 12 days of x-mas show, I painted two but they may only be using one in the show, Im not sure. Then for the show at the Stables I will have 12 pieces, some new original artwork, some framed open edition prints and some framed Limited edition hand embellished canvas prints so a range of prices from like $20-$650. Stop by listen to music and look at art! =)
This is the official website for artist Alexandria Sandlin AKA Cherrybones. Thanks for checking out my site!
I will be vending at the Seattle Etsy Rain pre-holiday show next weekend 16-17th at the Intiman Theatre at the Seattle Center. You can get all the details here:
I will be sharing a space with my good friend Mary of Happy Delusions:
Also I wanted to point out my public art page on Facebook. That is the best place to go for my most recent artwork and event/show dates and random babling from me(not to much of that though). There should be some cool stuff going on over there soon to so if you are on The Facebook you should add this page:
Also I have recently restocked my space at Happy Delusions down in Renton and took some new art and prints in to Twilight Artist Collective in West Seattle so if you are local and in need of some new art you should stop in and check it out :) I also have a bunch of art, prints, cameos and bookmarks on Vashon Island at Good Merchandise, I dont think I had posted about that yet over here.
I have been meaning to post this for a bit now. I have a few shows going and coming up.
First up This month my art has been hanging on Vashon Island at the Red Bicycle and it will be moving to Good Merchandise for the month of August. Both locations are curated by the lovely AnnaLisa LaFayette who owns Good Merchandise. I also have some prints and stuff in her shop for the duration of the art shows. I am also having another fun art show in August here in Renton at Common Ground Coffee and Cupcakes, it is of course a cupcake themed show! I am painting two new paintings for it, possibly a third if I have time and I will also have a bunch of sweet framed prints to hang there. Then in September I am having an art show at Happy Delusions and I am painting some new BIG paintings for that, more on that show when the time gets closer. I need to update the shows/appearances section of the site here still. I also have a bunch of new art I need to add to the gallery section, I am a little behind at the moment :P
I brought one of my newest paintings in to Twilight Artist Collective the other day. Powder Blue Pompadour, Acrylic on Wood Slice:
They have a really cool art show going on at Twilight right now to, if you are in the area you should stop in and check it out!
Well I better get back to work, so much painting to do....
So I haven't posted my "new" Paintings here yet. Got to get better about posting the new art here when it is actually brand new. So I have a few Alice in Wonderland paintings that I recently finished, they were in an art show a month or so ago at Rung Studio in Georgetown Wa (Seattle). They are now available in my Etsy Shop and clicking on the pics will take you to the individual listings there, prints are also available:
I also just finished my first custom painted Mini Munny! This was pretty fun to do so I may do more in the future :) Click the pic to see more shots of her!
So Ill have more new art to post really soon! Now though its time to go clean the house. I had a house guest over the weekend and a show- I heart Indie in Kirkland on Sunday so I need to get caught up on my chores so I can paint without distractions...
Well Etsy has made a new treasury that is open 24-7 for treasury making now, Treasury East. So I made these two treasuries yesterday :) The first is titled Blueberry Smoothie because I didn't get to have my blueberry smoothie because part of my blender broke the other day :/ I still don't know if Ill pay the $10 for the new part or just go buy a new cheap blender....
The next one I did is based on my husbands profession as a commercial electrician. He actually used to do more high voltage stuff than he has been doing lately which used to stress me out so bad...
I hope you like my treasuries :)
hanging my laundry out in the sun and gardening.....
Geoff and I got the terrible news yesterday about the helicopter crash in Arizona. We knew these people for many years, my husband worked for Tom and we lived on his Vashon property for something like 7 years I think. All of the people on board including the pilot were kind, good people and this just breaks our hearts. We are thinking about their families and their close friends. Our hearts go out to you. I really dont know what else to say.
