Yesterday, I installed signs to help bring attention to the upcoming exhibition, "Petaluma's Participation in the Women's Suffrage Movement." The exhibition opens officially on August 26th!
In lieu of in-person visits, the museum will be offering an online gallery tour with the dynamic curator historian and patron Paula Freund. I am really looking forward to seeing it! Check the museum's website https://www.PetalumaMuseum.org for details on the online gallery tour and upcoming events related to the exhibition.
Check out my new VOTE with LOVE series and Sunflower signs installed last night. I will be selling stickers, and perhaps posters, to raise money to fund this and other empowering inspirational projects. Don't be shy about sharing the wealth if you can! And, remember that no matter what, you are amazing!
To see the designs go the the VOTE with LOVE page.
And, stay tuned!
And, the save goes to.... PRH!
Always and ever the procrastinator, I planned to seal and finish the signs for tomorrow's installation today, outside in the driveway. Mother Nature and planet Earth had other plans. The smoke and light ash rain from nearby fires, north and east of Petaluma, forced a change in plans.
After the initial panic subsided, I called my friend Pam for help. She loaned me her barn for the afternoon and I was able to meet my deadline.
Thank you, Pam!!!!!!!!!!!
So, instead of working on some materials for a meeting that I have today, and an overdue commission. I designed this yesterday. Running away from my anxiety, or maybe I should say refocusing it, is often beneficial!
Now... back to work :P
Inspired in part by Robert Indiana.
I designed this one while waiting for the paint to dry on the larger sign. fun!
I think that Vote with Love wants to become a series. Let's see what happens in the next few days...
I designed this one as a sticker earlier in the week and converted it to a 2'x2' sign last night. (Special thanks for inspiration to artist Robert Indiana.)
