American Craft Council Baltimore Art Show

The ACC Baltimore Show is one of the best places in the USA to see and buy Decorative Art Work. There are over 700 artists featured, with some incredibly creative work. At this show, there is truly something for everyone. You owe it to yourself to go, and to treat yourself to a new addition to your home or art collection!

It is also the only show that I plan to do on the East Coast this year. I will be in Booth #3501, at the Baltimore Convention Center, from February 24th at 10:00am through February 26th at 5:00pm. Come by and visit! I'd love to meet you!

For me, a show is a great motivator to get out to the workshop and follow some new ideas. Or maybe try to do justice to that delicious piece of burl that has been waiting for me. The weeks right before a show are usually my most creative.

Ideas come from all different places. My sister saw this picture on the ACC website, and suggested that I make one like it in blue (her favorite color), because that shape looks like water flowing. Great idea! I had been planning to make a piece in that style again. Maybe I can get it finished in time.
Here's a piece that I just finished, one of my first for 2012. This color scheme would look good on the flowing water design. 

Now I'm all excited to get out to the shop and start working! Hope to see you all at the Baltimore ACC show next month. Here are the details:
