Carla's Funky Art

The Whimsey of Women Art Show

Art Journaling, PaintingcarlaComment

WOW, now this is a little embarrassing. I haven't posted in almost a month. Yikes.  I do have a couple of GREAT excuses.  For starters, I found my watercolor art journal, and I CANNOT stop journaling.  Every night I sit down and go crazy at the kitchen table, I am obsessed!  Second, Dan and I started a "Biggest Loser Challenge" and I have been working my butt off (literally) ever since! :)

This next weekend is The Whimsey of Women Art Show at the Depot.

I have been gearing up for a whimsical show.  I have done an Anacortes series through my eyes. :)  All colorful and funky! Here are a few recent pieces:

Ahhhh....the "Gere-a-Deli" statue!  Every Thursday I am fortunate enough to eat lunch at an AMAZING hip restaraunt!  The little copper guy in the painting above is there to greet you at the door on your way in.  The first time I laid eyes on him, I knew I had to do a silly fun bright painting, he is SO COOL!   Gere-a-Deli is the BEST place in Anacortes for sandwiches, soup and salads!  It is always packed, no matter what time you show up.  If you are ever in the area, you MUST swing by and grab a bite, you will love it.....

Another piece I have been working on is the Anacortes oil refinery.  I have heard so many negative comments about how ugly or smelly the refinery is.  I think it is beautiful.  :)  Have you ever driven my the refinery at night?  It looks like a little city and all the lights sparkle off the water.  The refinery is such a big part of Anacortes, it keeps people employed and the city alive.  I don't even mind the stinky smell it gives off.....(ok, sometimes I do, I admit it.)

Here is my refinery:

The picture is horribly blurry, I think I better start taking some photography classes! Whaaaa!

Hope to see you this weekend at THE DEPOT!
