The Almost Weekly Update

One of my annual goals is to blog more but I never tell myself what more means. So my more is to do weekly updates.
On Saturday I dropped off my items for the gallery that starts on Friday. It feels more real now that the tack and models are in the display.
 They'll be more spread out once the previous show is gone and the larger display is out.
While I was dropping off pieces a few of the other artists also dropped off their work. Isn't it cool?! There's such a variety of pieces that are going to be shown. The camera didn't pick up the cool details and textures in the two pieces on the left. I can't wait to meet everyone that's in it. 
I'm almost done with the pebble sized cross stitched saddle pad. 
And I picked my victim for NaMoPaiMo or National Model Painting Month. It's a Mini Hazel that I bought at Breyerfest 2016.

So. Excited.

It's the 2nd week of classes and the weather is still fall-like.
That's great but this is exciting.
Earlier in the fall, one of my favorite professors asked if I would be interested in contributing pieces to a gallery exhibit she wanted to put together. I had helped with the putting together and organizing of a campus-wide mosaic mural.
Students and Alumni were able to paint a piece of the mosaic and after all of the pieces were painted, I helped put them in order to create the picture.
My obvious answer was yesyesyesyes and then she proceeded to ask for examples of my work. I really didn't have examples of 2D work (still sorta don't lol) but I went out on a limb and brought some of my model horse tack.
She. Loved. It.
So I'm going to be in an art gallery.
