A Little Something New for You

I’ve been in a frenzied mode of creativity for months now. You can usually find me running around with paint in my hair and mountains of paper scraps at my feet. Between the crazy nonstop world of the regular everyday madness, starting a new poetry workshop in January, and being involved in something like a billion incredible art projects, this poor little blog thingy tends to become neglected. Don’t get me wrong. I’m grateful for the busy pace. I crave it, you know.

Creating new pieces for Free Art Friday NoVA and giving pieces away every week has become an obsession. I’ve even sent a piece of my free art off to Sydney, Australia. Every once in a while I give away a Free Art Friday piece on my Facebook page as well. And, just in case you’re interested in finding some of my free art in Northern Virginia, I’m planning to drop pieces at the new Epicure Café for the next several weeks. I would love for you to find a piece! If you do find one, please take a photo of yourself with your Free Art Friday piece and post it to the Free Art Friday NoVA page and/or to my Dear Suburbia page on Facebook. I would love to see you enjoying your free found art!

I’ve also become part of a new art collective, The Bunnyman Bridge Collective, with fellow artists Jason Davis and Javier Padilla. Be on the lookout. We’re already up to quite a bit of creative mischief in the unsuspecting wilds of suburbia. There are so many exciting collaborations and art filled events in the works for 2014. I’m keeping them as sort of a secret for now. I’ll let you in on all of it very soon. For now, here are a few of my most recent collages that I hope you will love!  xoxo

Free Art for the Finding in Suburbia

Imagine free art waiting for you every Friday right here in Suburbia. I often get ahead of myself. I know it’s only Thursday, but I’m preparing to leave this 3 x 5 mixed media piece late late tonight somewhere in Fairfax, VA. As it turns out, Free Art Friday is quite magical. Have you found your piece yet? Tonight’s drop will be my 5th. I plan to continue creating free art pieces for you to find throughout Northern Virginia. Please be sure to like Dear Suburbia and Free Art Friday NoVA on Facebook to get the latest news and updates about more free art drops, including photos of the drops and clues to their locations as soon as they happen.

Free Art Friday #5

Free to an art loving home…please take me! I’m free! xoxo

Even More Fun the Second Time Around

Dear Suburbia, I have more Free Art Friday NoVA art for you! I’m planning to drop this 4×4 double-sided mixed media piece off late late tonight in Fairfax, Virginia. I’m hoping it will become a magical Friday morning discovery for someone! So far I’m thinking that this piece will be waiting for a lucky someone somewhere near either George Mason University or Epicure Café. We shall see how the evening unfolds. Happy Free Art finding to you!

Yes, it is free!!! Go ahead...take it...I made this for you! xoxo

Free Art Friday

Want free art? This 5×5 original piece of art could be yours! You could find it somewhere in suburbia as part of Free Art Friday NoVA! Keep an eye out for this little piece of art, and more to come, Fridays in Northern Virginia. I’ll be leaving my pieces in Fairfax. If you would like clues for how to find free art, or if you are an artist who would like to participate, check out Free Art Friday NoVA on Facebook. I love the idea of someone finding a free piece of original art. I’m hoping it will bring a bit of joy and wonder into someone’s day.

Dear Suburbia,  I made this for you. P.S. It is free. xoxo
