|Mixed media artist, Marianne Konvalinka|
Indeed -- I have the rare pleasure of spending most Tuesday evenings in the company of a variety of talented, smart, funny and caring fellow Boise artists; all gathered in the cozy confines of Marianne Konvalinka's studio space. Sometimes it's just Marianne and one other artist, at other times five or six of us squeeze in to work on (small) projects and enjoy each other's company.
I so value these evenings because it gets me out of my normal mental and physical work space. These are not equine artists; among us we have mixed media artists, painters, metal and ceramic sculptors and print makers. Boy do we learn from each other!
Tuesday evenings at Marianne's are the perfect time for me to work on more experimental projects, like taking the concept of analyzing a human form in simple blocks representing key elements (torso, pelvis, legs bones, knees and feet) and applying that to a four-legged critter. I was happy with how well the technique translated to an equine form!

Tonight I'll be taking over a relief to work on. Check in on my Laf'n Bear Facebook page for an update later on that project. Well, time to pack up and head over for Super Tuesday at Marianne's!
Be well all!
