Dusting this blog off

Its been several months since I last posted anything on here. To be honest I was hibernating in the cold Portland winter and when Spring came I was so overwhelmed with the beauty that I just immersed myself in it. As the days started to warm I was able to get out into my studio and really get the ball rolling with my art making. My mind was on creating, not composing blog posts. But I am at a point now where I would love to share the projects that I am working on and adventures I am going on.

Very soon I will be leaving for an artist residency in Quebec Canada. I will be returning to The Ayatana Artists' Research Program. I am thrilled to be coming back for my third year and again as an expedition leader. I am excited to be working with the experts and scientists and deepen my knowledge of insects and entomology.

My plan is to try and write a short blog entry each day to share my experience, I hope you follow along and let me know what you think.

New mini encaustic paintings

I am thrilled to share that I created 10 brand new mini encaustic paintings exclusively for the 2018 UGallery.com Ornamental Artworks Collection.

Each 4x4 painting comes gift-wrapped and includes a petite easel for display. They are only $75 each and includes free shipping!

Visit www.ugallery.com/artist/Shannon-Amidon to claim yours before they all fly away.

Thank You! SF Open Studios

San Francisco Open Studios was fantastic!

I flew down from Portland for a few days to participate in SFOS at Secession Art and Design. The weekend was so great and lots of paintings found new homes. One of my favorite parts of being an artist is meeting and talking with the people who like and connect with my artwork. If you didn’t get a chance to come out the artwork will be on display until Nov. 24th!
