Just Add Vodka

Who knew painting glassware could be so complicated and backbreaking?   I decided to try dabbing my dots on new barware to compliment my “Drink Series” of pointillism paintings.   I had no idea just how time consuming it would become once I started painting all the individual colors and planning sets.  However, now that I have finished the last step of baking them so that they will be dishwasher safe, I’m feeling much better about the whole operation.

Tequila Shots Anyone?

I will be selling these originals at the upcoming Artists of the Superstitions 6th Annual Studio Tour at the base of the Superstition Mountains in Apache Junction, AZ. on the weekend of Novemebr 3-4th.

You can print a map of the many artists’ studios at http://artistsofthesuperstions.com/Tour_map_2012.pdf

Along with the various designs of all kinds of barware, I will be selling original pointillism paintings, framed miniature prints, & T-shirts of my painting images.   You will surely find a unique holiday gift from my collections or the wonderful artwork of the other artists at our studio location: KimmBerly Ioane’s Raku Sculptures & Vessels, Lori Berry’s Fused Glassworks & Jewelry, and Diane Haugen’s Gourd Art.   Our Studio is #3 on the Apache Junction Map.

Perfect for Wine Coolers

It’s quite the drive to see all the studios but well worth as this year the tour has many more incredible artists than before.  And, if you should come to Studio #3, we will serve you a yummy Mimosa or a hot cup of tea and snacks.

I hope to see many of you there.
