We are getting ready for the big show

Julie and I have been very busy preparing for the Open Art Studios Tour known as the Loomis Art Loop coming up this weekend.

My art studio is small and upstairs, so I hang a display of my work in our dining room.  After we remove the dining room furniture up go the walls.

This wall is done.

Julie arrived after work this evening, and we moved furniture around in the living room an up went her walls.  Julie works with textiles by painting, quilting, and using glue and brads, and a host of clever tricks to create colorful textile murals.

Julie hangs the first piece for her show.

An hour later….

Where should I put this one?


We are planning to demonstrate our techniques, share our latest discoveries and answer your questions.   Julie will be busy on her sewing machine downstairs and I will be in the studio upstairs demonstrating techniques for painting watercolors on clay on board (“Aquabord”).


We hope you will come see our show this weekend, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm both Saturday and Sunday.  We are stop #7 & 8 on the tour map, just exit Interstate 80 at Penryn exit and follow the yellow signs with the Loomis Art Loop logo.   This is a FREE studio tour.  To learn more about the tour artists and print a map click on this link


Hope to see you this weekend.   Julie and Sandy
