Oil on canvas, 10x10, $100
I had a great, fun time - and success, too! - at the Mystic Outdoor Art Festival last weekend. To all of you who came to the show, thank you! It was great, so great, to see friends, collectors and family - and to meet new people, too. You honor me when you come to the shows; I know what it takes to get there, to park, to walk around in the summertime heat, and to find me and spend time with me - and buy paintings, too! Thank you. I appreciate it so very much.
This weekend, I'll be at the SoNo Arts Festival in South Norwalk, CT. My friend Cynthia Battista - a wonderful jeweler who makes deeply original jewelry for men and women - you can check her work out here) will be there, too, as will my friend, Ronet Noe, a Connecticut artist and art teacher who makes amazing 3-D paintings - see her work by clicking here!
I still don't know my booth number or location, but will post that on the blog here, on my Carrie Jacobson, Artist Facebook page and on the Jacobson Arts website as soon as I know. The show is Saturday, 10-6, and Sunday, 10-5 in South Norwalk. Click here for the SoNo website.
Here's a happy buyer, hiding from her husband, who told her (joking... sort of) "Go to the show, but don't buy another painting from Carrie!" Here she is below, showing off her purple sunflower painting.
I'VE BEEN EXPERIMENTING with sponsor gifts for my upcoming 101 Dogs project; one of the best, I think, is the tote bag. A toteb ag with the painting of Abby is modeled here by a friend and supporter who bought it at the Mystic show.
The bag is really great. It comes in various sizes, from 13x13 ($25) to 18x18 ($35). You can find them on my Fine Art America page.
If there is a painting you want to have printed on a bag, pillow, notecards, etc., please email me at carrieBjacobson@gmail.com and I will get the painting there, in the right size for whatever you want. In upcoming shows, I'll have totebags for sale, too.
Dog of the Day
It's Taz, left, and Tyler, the dogs who live with our daughter Erika and her husband Paul and son Ashton, in Westerly, RI. They've had Tyler for a while, and recently decided to get him a friend, so they found his twin in looks and spirit. Wouldn't it be great if humans could decide they needed a friend, and then just go out and get one?
A Final Thought
"Art, undeniably, is conducive to happiness."
