Can you believe that we're half way through the year? We're entering the time for bright colors and hot weather here in the Northwest. I personally don't mind the PNW drizzle weather that we have most of the year, but I also gravitate towards brighter colors on a daily. I like reds, yellows, oranges and bright blues. I think that is pretty evident with my work too.
While working on custom wedding pieces, I am also creating bright cheery pieces to have on hand at Urban Craft Uprising's Summer Show. It is likely to to be my only show this year due to time constraints with also managing 6 by 6 Arts. I'll have a shared booth with 6 by 6 at UCU.
I've spent a lot of time sourcing brighter pieces of vintage kimono to work with. I'm really into avoiding neutrals right now. I will of course have some versatile white pieces on hand that are always a fan favorite, but this year I am fully embracing color. I love looking at bright fun colors, it makes me feel happy. I'm a firm believer that color affects your mood. Who doesn't need a bit more happy colors in their lives? So be ready to eye guzzle some color if you're coming to visit me at UCU this summer!
