Well, not really. And hey, you can always go to my flickr photo site to download pretty pictures for free, but I think you ought to support your Plucky Local Independent Artist and the Plucky Local Independent Art and Frame Shop where her paintings are at:
Yesterday Allison showed me the mats she was working on for my stuff -- and what a fine job she is doing on them. Here I try to fit them all in one photo and fail:
She hopes to have them framed and on the walls by next week but you can go in NOW to get early dibs on anything you like --just ask Allison to show you my FABULOUS paintings.
Look, MARY -- an OWL! Doesn't it shout out to you? I'm sure it does.
She had one piece nearly ready to go with a fine frame:
And she said a couple of the pieces might also sell as prints. When I started to explain that I didn't know squat about having prints made but could find out, she said that she'd handle it all for me, does it all the time for her other artists. I like that. I wouldn't do this if it wasn't easy!
If you don't like birds (and who doesn't?), there are a couple of landscapes here and there.
Can't wait to see them with frames and on the wall! It's a small shop on The Ave (AKA University Way) near the corner of 43rd on the west side of the street. On the corner is an ICE CREAM shop, and then the Woolly Mammoth shoe store, and then Allison's amazing Four Corners Art & Frame Shop. I know parking in the U-District is a hassle. Combine your visit with a trip to the University Bookstore, which is across the street and has a parking lot in back. Or come on a Saturday after 12Noon and park for free on campus behind the Burke Museum.
I think it's open Mon-Sat 10-5 and closed on Sundays but you can always call first. And did I mention the ICE CREAM SHOP?
Tell all your friends! Tell all your friends who love ART. Tell all your friends who love art and nature and birds. Tell all your friends who love art and nature and birds and who have money. Support your plucky local independent creative folks, and help me to retire early!
TRUMAN SEZS, BUY MY MOM'S ART!
Actually, he kind of looks as if he's saying, "OhMyGod I've been turned into a spokesdog! Arg, the pressure!" He is, after all, a Highly Sensitive Dog.
