Here's what I've been up to:
I created some new Philadelphia inspired work.
I used West Philly row houses for my references for the two pieces below. I think West Philly has the most beautiful houses in the whole city.

“Penn’s Woods II, watercolor & graphite on Rives BFK, 26x11”, 2015".
Another new piece was inspired by one of my very favorite buildings in Philadelphia, The Divine Lorraine Hotel. The hotel has been empty and unkept for years, but many people in Philly are really fond of this building. Read more about it here.

Philadelphia has some of the best food! One of my favorite snacks are Philly soft pretzels. This raccoon stole one! (He's way better than New York's pizza rat)
I've made notecards of this raccoon too:

The work above was shown at The Art Dept. gallery in Fishtown as part of a show, Faunadelphia.

Emily from The Art Dept. also stopped by for a studio visit, and took some fun photos:
4th and Cross:
I have my work up at the South Philly restaurant, Fourth and Cross until January.
They have the best fries! Stop by and check out the place.
Thank you so much to anyone who stopped by my table to say hi!
I am in two additional stores since August.
I have cards available at the baby goods store, Minnow Lane in Fishtown. I'm also in Nice Things Handmade on East Passyunk; you can pick up cards, prints, and brooches there.
Here's my schedule for the month of November:
There are loads of fun things coming up!
The first event is The Fall Art Star Craft Bazaar this weekend.
I just made a poster for the holiday Go West! Craft Fest. I'll share it in my next post, so check back soon!
