Artoberly Ever After

Here we are mid- November, watching Christmas decorations go up at full speed. Hopefully we'll all not rush so headlong into the Christmas frenzy that we forget to stop and enjoy this fall's many other treats:

  • This is the most gorgeous, colorful Nashville Fall I can remember.
  • Thanksgiving is next week- what a sweet time to focus on thankfulness rather than acquiring material gifts.
  • Nashville's second annual Artober wrapped up very successfully! Yay for the growth of arts advocacy in Nashville- thanks in a large part to the Metro Nashville Arts Commission. 
To pull from that final bullet, here's a series of images that captured the creation process from sketch to completed painting of the Artober community project I did on the last Friday in October. It was hosted by the 5/3 Bank in Hillsboro Village. Many thanks to 5/3 Bank, who came in and sponsored Artober in a big way; I am thankful to be in a community where businesses recognize the value of the arts.

The rough sketch.

Event set up...
Kickstarting the painting and inviting others to join.
Community participants jump right in!

Signed and delivered!

The completed piece hangs in the 5/3 Bank located in Hillsboro Village, located on Wedgewood Ave.
