Art Open Studio Texas

Dear friend,
Well, I have just spent the last 16 hours or so trying to figure out why I cannot send out my art newsletter to my subscription list. So, I am hoping that Facebook and my blog here will get the word out to most of you who would like to know about the following events. First one is TODAY!
Thank you for your continuing interest.
'night (nap time) and see you at the book signing later today,
Kelly

CONTENTS of Borsheim Art News:
* Invitation to Last Open Studio
* Book Signings - Austin, Texas: “My Life as a Street Painter in Florence, Italy”
* Subscription Info.


Dear Art Lover,

Hello again. I just wanted to send you an invitation to my last Open Studio in the place that I have lived and worked for over 20 years.


October 14 - 16, 2011
Friday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day

Borsheim Arts Studio
223 Greystone Lane, Unit A
Cedar Creek, Texas 78612 USA
Tel. 512.303.3929
Online directions:

Besides letting you see the near-finished marble “Gymnast” that I hope that you have been following the creation of via my blog, I will also be introducing two new works. Both are inspired by the divorce that I have been going through this year. The first is a bronze “The Unwritten Future” and the second one is a 30” x 40” oil painting titled “New Year’s Eve.” Images will have to wait until my next newsletter.

While this kind of thing is never really happy, per se, I am not trying to share depression or anything dramatic. And moving offers opportunities for many, including an array of good deals on selected artworks, time to visit, and also a sale of a variety of art supplies and random goodies that I just cannot take with me. I hope that you will come out to this event or the few others I have before I leave Texas in November.

Details Stone Carving

Cari Amici (Dear Friends),

It is not all in the details, but the details can offer fun little bonuses. These images show the beginning of my carving marble shapes into the hair band on the ponytail of the “Gymnast.” This is another case of a seemingly open space to work in that is actually not: There is not really enough room for me to get in an electric rotary tool to carve the small spheres in the band at all the angles I would like to reach. The legs that point to the sky in her pike position get in the way. Still, I hope that the details will be worth the efforts.

Below, you are invited to come over to say hello, during my upcoming book signings. The first is in North Austin this Thursday, while the second is in South Austin this Saturday. The book “My Life as a Street Painter in Florence, Italy” is getting good reviews, including this one:
Says Mary Condon, Mayor of Florence, Texas, "I love your book. I can barely put it down to do my work. I would like to order two more . . . "
