Art at Shades of Brown

This morning I packed up a large group of original paintings and some prints and headed down to Brookside in Tulsa to hang at my favorite little coffee shop, Shades of Brown! If you've never been there, it's such a nice place to go and hang out, and you're fully expected to just sit and talk for hours. The furniture is old and worn and mostly velvet, so you know I love that!

So after a morning of wielding a hammer in a coffee shop, the art is all up and if I say so myself, its looking rather nice! The art will be up through the entire month of February and can be bought right off the walls. If you're in the area, I hope you stop by! And if you do, i suggest the heath mocha or the grasshopper :)


Aside from doing this show, I've been thinking about some other Audrey Eclectic stuff. As regards to my painted mugs, you may have noticed they're not as prevalent in my shop. I am so happy and grateful to have sold so many, but the 'paint to order' mug system started to wear my down after a while. I'd like to get more creative and spontaneous with them, and not have to worry about the need to have a large supply of mugs so that they're all the same shape and size.

What I think I will start doing is painting custom ceramic pieces that are more originals and one of a kind to offer in the shop. That way I can be more creative in what I paint on and dont have to worry about whether I can get my hands on the exact same mug for dozens of cups and months to come. I hope that sounds good to you all! I think that will make the pieces more fresh and inspired as well.

And while I'm talking of changes, I'm going back and forth about my Ma Ingalls blog. As much as I like the idea, it always come a very distinct second to this art blog and I feel like my inattention is not making it what it could be. I've been thinking of just moving the whole 'love of little house' over to this blog, especially since I've started the Little House art series. I hate to bum anyone out about not doing that blog, but I feel like dividing my attention is not giving it the quality I'd like.

So. Those are the latest mission statements for 2012 :) It's February now, can you believe it?! And I do have daffodils and hyacinths popping up in my garden. Oh, I have a feeling they'll be in for a surprise at some point...poor confused little bulbs!~

Thanks so much for your support and your reading here!~ I appreciate it!~

  4. Your work meshes so well with the mood at Shades of Brown. I agree, it's a neat little spot. And I love the idea you're working on for the mugs. Just throwin' it out there, but I always find really funky, retro mugs irresistible. I think the one of a kind nature of the new designs will make them really desirable!

  5. That is a wonderful way to display and sell your work. Great idea and gives you an expanded fan base.

    I know what you mean about having more than one blog. I think I have too many but at this point I'm note sure what to do.

  6. First off, a Heath Mocha sounds dee-licious. I love toffee.

    What a cute little shop! Your work fits right in.

  8. The place calls out for your beautiful pictures. They seem to fit very nicely in their nooks :-)

    I agree about having way too many blogs. There were times I got carried away and realized that one is just good enough :-)

    Be blessed today,

    Maria

  10. I collect plates that you hang on your wall.I would love the opportunity to purchase a set of 4 from you if you go in that direction.

    I tried having two blogs and it didn't work out for me.I hardly ever blogged there and I thought heck if my new friends like my art then they will like my occasional "other stuff" as well.Personally I love reading whatever you post.
