Kilpatrick’s Public House that is, the only Irish Pub here in Ithaca NY!

A while ago I was asked to do this, and I am very grateful that it’s finally worked out (and that they were on board with me drawing oodles of Irish faeries)! This drawing is very much in service to them – I hope that anyone looking at this or coloring it as they wait for their meal thinks about the fae, and the richness of Irish culture.

Ta da!!!

More views below (click for larger views!).

Ten Forward has a charmingly small art space – all atop that bookshelf and the walls above it – but since my work is so small I chose to just show on the bookshelf and on a few pegs that hang below the windows (there was an option to suspend more from higher up, but surprise, I chose the cozy option!).

For my October show I had a much more fluid arrangement of pieces, and many of those pieces are featured again here, so I had to rearrange some things for a more linear feel. I like that, though – It makes it feel really sequential to me, and reads really well if you start at the left end (which are all “Tock the Gnome”-related pieces), then things shift a bit to a more serious Tock piece (“Purity”) followed immediately by the (currently unposted) “Tea Meditation Fae,” which is very much about more general Faerie-inspiration! That theme persists as you move forward, along with a couple features of work I’ve done for others (my Gnome designs for the Weber sisters’ The Chronicles of Dru, and at the end there, that new fanart of Jaclyn Weber’s and GrimReapette’s “KINGS”).

That very last piece, above my information, is a very special one that’s been long overdue. I will be posting the scan of it here ….soon. Gotta give some incentive for people to go see it in person, you know!

That said, if you are in the Central New York area, please come take a look! And again, grab some food!!! I am honored to be bringing Faerie light to such a delicious and planet-friendly place.

Art show time again!

My work will be on display at the Hilton Garden Inn, Ithaca NY starting October 1st, bringing Faerie Light there through the end of October!

Some of the pieces I’ll be showing have not been posted online yet, either – that will probably be happening sometime next month, after show prep is over, BUT if you want a sneak peek and you live in the CNY area please come to take a look! Also, the evening of October 6th there will be a reception from 5 to 8pm – so come partake of some delicious snacks while you view some beautiful art!

Also a great chance to meet me and ask any questions you have about my work 😀

Remember that delightful little local festival I spent months frantically preparing for last September, leading up to festival day, October 1st?

Well, somehow I missed this article, which I actually interviewed for that day, and then completely spaced out on!
 
Still so grateful to have been a part of this and looking forward to it again this coming (…..far off, but still coming) fall ❤
Thanks once more to Kristina at Amuse Modern Cottage Industry and Press Bay Alley in general for putting on the festival and inviting me to be a part of it. And thanks to Ithaca Week for featuring me in this article!
