the Glass Outhouse Gallery

January 21st, 2019 | Posted by jesskeylon in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

I am ready… almost. A few details to touch up, a few coats of clear lacquer and then I will be ready.

After almost 3 years of having this show looming on the horizon, I am seeing it come to full fruition. My paintings are (almost) finished, starting to think of some last minute details (what kind of snacks shall I provide?) and it’s all feeling right. It’s good. I’m ready. And for all of those who were wondering, yes. There will be rabbits.

The Glass Outhouse Gallery is in Wonder Valley, just east of the busy little town of Twentynine Palms. Directions can be found here.

Hope to see y’all for the opening on Saturday, Feb 2nd, from 1-5pm. The show runs thru the 24th.

After a fun filled summer of being away in a landscape that included lakes and rivers, I am back at the studio in Pioneertown, creating up a storm and getting ready for the Hwy 62 Open Studio Tours next month. Next month! Good thing I’m ready. Just got in some new prints, will have some seasonal greeting cards soon, painting some new paintings and I even spruced up the studio a bit in anticipation.

These iron on embroidered patches arrived a couple of weeks ago and I could not love them more. Exactly perfect.

Awesome iron-on embroidered patches available in my studio/shop in Pioneertown.

I am also making headway with my art pieces for my upcoming solo show at the Glass Outhouse Gallery out in the Wonder Valley neighborhood of 29 palms. Had to get my home studio up and running before I could start. Now I have no excuses.

I’ve been busy putting together my finished art pieces and prints for you folks in San Diego!

Yes it’s true I don’t live in San Diego anymore, but I will be visiting this weekend in order to participate in this year’s Mission Federal ArtWalk in Little Italy near downtown San Diego. I have a great spot on India Street where I will be gazing at Blick Art Supplies.

Come on down Saturday or Sunday to tent #910. Also on that block will be my friends at Scripps Health, who will be letting everyone participate in a huge coloring sheet mural which I designed and inked out.

If I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to you, now is the chance to come by in person and say hello (and then goodbye), all while stocking up on some new art for you walls.

See you this weekend!

It’s national cat day, y’all.

I’ve also been pretty darn consistent with the Inktober challenge. Only missed one day when we were off in the desert. I will be making that one up though, I promise.

Happy #nationalcatday to you. #inktober #instaart #watercolor #watercolour #winsorandnewton #cat #meow

I am participating in Inktober. It’s October with ink. Quite a challenge that I stumbled into on October 1st after innocently posting a portion of an inked artwork (my first out of 31). I then came across many, many other artists tagging their creations with #inktober. “What is this inktober?” I asked myself, and through the magic of the internet I found out 3 seconds later. Draw in ink, take a picture, post it with the tag. A great way to practice and motivate myself, and saturate the internet with my artwork for people to enjoy.

So for the entire month of October I will be creating daily sketches, drawings, and artwork with ink and posting them on my social media accounts. Yes social media, I am in. I was reflecting on that for today’s post:

Strangely wise

I love popping into the local Japanese Diaso store from time to time. They have a great selection of useful household and personal items, and some unique things I never knew I needed. My current favorite section is the stationary section, full of colorful pens, Sumi brushes, inks, and cute pencil cases. Some of these have sentimental phrases that kind of make sense, though the clarity has been lost in translation. You get more of the feeling of the message, rather than the logical, literal sense. I like these. It helps me get into the figurative, emotive, experiential world, where images and words have more meaning than their literal counterparts. Go now, to the nearest Japanese store.

lovely weekend

Thank you all who stopped by to visit, it was a hot, humid weekend and seeing everyone’s smiling faces made the heat much more tolerable.
A success! Now back to painting.

thoughts on cats

I have never lived with a cat. Before my husband and I married, he was adopted by a stray petite, sweet one eyed kitty (legend had it she had a fight with a raccoon) and she stayed with me one night. My apartment had fleas afterwards. Other than that, I have never lived with a cat.

When the Artist Republic 4 Tomorrow gallery in Laguna Beach asked if I would participate in their upcoming cat show, I balked. I know nothing about cats. I”m not even sure I trust them- they always seem to know too much… planning for revenge…

But alas, I agreed and ended up with the kitty above. This was a very fun project to work on, fun to come up with the objects inside (my favorites are the bread clip and the thumbdrive). So glad I decided to participate!

The show runs Through the 26th of April, I recommend heading over to the gallery in Laguna Beach if you find yourself in the area!
