A friend told me about an opportunity for a big art project in Fort Worth. It would be a paying gig. They are wanting to commission eight artists (I believe I saw that said somewhere) to paint public art installations along a walking trail. They required a portfolio and an artist CV (fancy, in depth resume), so I’ve been working hard on building mine.
On top of that, the City of Mansfield is holding their annual painted rainbarrel competition. I decided I wanted to enter again. I just had so much fun with it last year! I decided to go with a watermelon design this time around. Last year, I painted a llama. The barrel would look like a giant watermelon. I really want to paint this, so I hope they choose me!
Then, this Thursday, I’ll be loading in my artwork for an artist reception on Sunday. And then the following weekend I’ll have my booth set up for Mansfield’s St. Patrick’s Day Pickle Parade (March 14th from 10 to 5, same location as the reception)! I’ve never been, but heard they expect thirty to forty thousands people to attend! I will definitely have my work cut out for me. I hope to meet loads of interesting folks who want my art!
I also hope to have plenty of people show up to the reception. Stop on by and say “howdy”, if you get a chance!
