Give art a chance!

I donated a painting for the 7th annual Art Perchance held at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. They call it an evening of art and artfully clever carnival games. And it really was alot of fun. I tried to capture the evening in photos. And where else would I start but with my painting. I did a larger version of one of the Black Shells I donated to the ripplesketches blog. Black Oil Shell is a statement piece of personal responsibility. We really do hold the future in our hands.

My new business cards.

I had to bring my own lunch pal. I'm kidding. They actually had some fancy snacks for the artists. I guess I was so busy eating I forgot to take some savory photos of the food. My favorite was the watermelon/salty cheese number.

I think I photographed most of the charming extras. I think their job was to try to get people to play the carnival games. And to just look cool.

If I wasn't an artist before, I officially am now!

I even put on some fancy shoes for the evening. A band played all night. But these shoes were only made for walking.

I met Nancy. She designed all the carnival games. (all the games were free by the way) And she was wearing a hilarious poodle skirt.
I also met Brian and Gerry. They might not ever know I remembered their names. Unless they check out my blog that is.

I won my very own glow stick playing this game.

I thought this would be the perfect photo to end this post. This is where my painting was. Now it's location is a mystery.
