The Art Gone Wild Fundraiser took place over the weekend kicking off with an art show on Friday night, and a two day sale over the weekend. It was such a joy to be a part of this event, and I can’t wait for next year as I hope to be selected as an artist for Zoo Atlanta again!
Last Thursday I participated in the Reimagine 13th Street event with several other artists, vendors, and food trucks. This event is “to help residents “reimagine” what the corridor could look like with fewer, slower traffic lanes, on-street parking and revived businesses along the route.” (Read more here).
In addition to setting up some artwork and jewelry to sell, I also helped Midtown Columbus prepare for the celebration by painting the windows of the mostly empty center to give people an idea of what could be there.
Yesterday I had the honor of painting the iconic vintage greyhound-turned-dining room of Country’s BBQ on Broadway. I am so excited that people will see a little something of mine everyday! And if it was done well enough, they may not even realize it as they will think it was there the whole time.
I mean, how many artists can say they got to paint on a 1947 silverside greyhound bus? That people eat in? See more pictures here.
Week 2 roundup! Lesson learned this week: Make time for your art. I think this project is teaching me about time management more than art! Although all this practice is making me faster, I believe.

On day 6 I had spent most of the day in the car driving all around the state of Georgia, but I made sure to get a quick painting in before bed. I only put in about half an hour, but I don’t want to miss a day!
