10th Annual Delta Visual Art Show

It was definitely a rainy, Arkansas weekend, but boy did the Blue Bridge Center for the Delta Arts shine. It was the 10th Annual Delta Visual Art Show, a show that brought 210 visual artists, 25 authors and 10 musicians together in downtown Newport, Arkansas for a celebration of talent, skill and creativity. It was also great to see my artist friends in the area.

It was a great opportunity, and not too far of a drive. Already signed up for next year, and I can’t wait!

Painters on Snapchat

For a while now I have been actively showing my works-in-progress on Snapchat. It is a great platform for informal, behind-the-scenes stories that are more personal and real because they disappear to the public.

Are you a Artist on Snapchat?

I have also found it to be quite difficult to find other artists on Snapchat. Typically “snapchat artists” on emerging directories are referring to people who doodle on their snaps with the built-in capabilities of the app. Don’t get me wrong, @Cakes1toDough1 ‘s cute cats are to die for, but I’d love to watch the daily practices of fellow traditional artists. If you draw or paint on snapchat please send me a friend request – mandyatlarge – let me know and I will definitely give you an add back!

Happy Chatting Fellow Snappers!

New Twitter Account

2015 Ozark Foothills Film Fest

Ozark Foothills FilmFest

Again this year I got to create the look for the annual Ozark Foothills FilmFest. I really like the way this years turned out and especially the tshirts. Looking forward to another great day of movies tomorrow. Bob and Judy are the very best.

Website updates

Ugh… My website recently got hacked, but that gave me an excuse to work on it, I guess. I have made a lot of changes to the galleries, and there is artwork missing from some of the galleries, but I am working on it. It should all function better on mobile and be easier to update. Enjoy.

Game of Thrones – Khaleesi Fan Art

HBO’s Game of Thrones is one of the most popular shows on TV, and for good reason. The characters, the locations, the sets, the attention to detail — it’s incredible. Earlier this year while waiting for the new season, I did a couple of watercolors of one of my favorite characters, Daenerys Targaryen or the Khaleesi, Mother of Dragons. These are of my two favorite scenes of last season.

 I don’t do many fanart-type pieces, but these were fun… Who knows? Maybe more will be inspired from the last season.
