I thought it might be fun to create a clamshell box for one of my journals – and it was fun. I like these as a set and think I’ll do some more.
Saturday, November 4th, 2017 is the beginning of the holiday shows for me. This is a great show with great artists from the area. I hope you get a chance to come out and see me and the other artists.
My 2018 Calendar is made up of some of the acrylic paintings that I have done over the last few years. There are some designs with cats, birds, trucks and houses. The calendar is a desk calendar that sits in a CD case. It is now available on Etsy at www.etsy.com/shop/JWyattArt
I will be at the Port Townsend Crafts by the Dock show this weekend, Sept 9-10th. The Wooden Boat Show is going on in town, so a lot of people will be around. Hope you can come see me.
The hours are Saturday 10am – 6pm and Sunday 10am to 5pm.
I was recently asked to create a painting for the Nourish Restaurant in Sequim. This painting would then be used as the basis for creating coasters, 6×6 trivets and cards. I just delivered the painting and all of these products to Nourish and they are now for sale. I am very excited about this opportunity. Next time you are at this great restaurant, please check out the painting and products.
I just finished a bunch of new blank journals. Some have a hard cover with exposed spine and others have soft wrap-around covers. I am taking most of these shown to the Focus on Book Arts conference in Oregon this week, where I’ll have them for sale in the artist shop.
I have finished the illustration drawings for the newest book by Gene Bradbury. This one will be called “Kitten Kitty Reads a Book” and will be for pretty little kids. The drawings are done and now on to the painting. The book should be out early to mid-summer.
The other book of Gene’s that I illustrated, called “When Cricket’s Snore”, was published last summer. It was a lot of fun to do and so far this one is as well.
Here is my latest painting. It is 18×24 and done with acrylic paint on canvas.
