Marriage is a work of art... Update!

I have a nice update from the Marriage show at Krab Jab last weekend. Emily and I both sold paintings!

The painting I sold was "The Green Man" and Emily sold her companion piece titled "Children of the Forest." They were bought by the same patron and it's nice to know that the two pieces made an impact on someone. I actually had some reservations with putting my painting up for sale. It was a personal piece and I was happy with the way it turned out. But beyond that, the painting actually meant something to me. Many of my freelance illustration paintings are fun or interesting but they don't have much long-lasting meaning for me. I'm still working on a post about "The Green Man," but the painting represented a feeling about nature, compassion, and happiness that is hard for me to describe. My only solace is that whoever bought our paintings felt a strong connection to them and just had to have them!

Our two sold paintings!
The show opening went really well. There was a steady crowd throughout and Emily, the other attending artists and I gave an interesting artist talk about living and working with our spouses. (I think Krab Jab recorded it but I'm not sure when it's going up on their youtube channel)

Marriage is a Work of Art

Emily and I will be showing some pieces in the upcoming show at KrabJab Studio this weekend! The show has a special theme featuring artist couples. It's a really great idea for a show since in our years of being professional artists we've come across many artist couples and it's always interesting to see how they work together.

Emily and I got to know each other because of art, and art is a huge part of our lives together. We'll be doing a talk during the show's opening night on Saturday April 11th from 6-9pm. I'm sure all the art-couples in attendance will have alot of interesting stories about the ups and downs of being with an artist. So if you're in the Seattle area this weekend please come by and check it out!
 We'll be a bit late to the opening because we're attending a workshop taught by Omar Rayyan that also takes place this weekend, but we do hope to arrive in time for the artist talk.
