January 2017 State of Affairs

By Architecture, Events, Pen and Ink, Watercolor

We’re 3 weeks in to 2017 and the year has started off with a bang! Since finishing the 12 days of Christmas series on January 5, I’ve kept up a constant stream of doodles, finished works, experiments and brainstorming.

I’ve also been fortunate to have been selected for two art shows around the valley – if you have a chance, please come out to see them! I’m happy to say that I have 2 artworks (below) in the Glendale  Arts Council Annual Juried Show which opened on January 8 and will continue through January 29.  You can find out more about that show here.

I was also selected as one of 62 artists for the Tiny Art show  at the Herberger Gallery@Arizona Center. What a fun, rainy night to meet new artists and enjoy art together! It opened on Friday, January 20 and continues through March 9. You can read about the Herberger show by clicking here. 

Finally, I’ve completed a few small, close-up works (6″x9″), a medium size artwork (9″x12″ – more about that one later) and started a large piece. Below is a peak at the latest 5.

Now I need a nap.

Fall 2016 Update

By Events

That crisp Fall feeling is in the air and my FB feed is starting to fill up with Pumpkin Spice dreams. In Arizona “Fall” means mornings in the 70’s and highs in the 100’s during the day but after a typically hot summer we’re grateful for any signs of cool. For the first time, all four of my kids are in school and I’m desperately trying to find my daytime rhythm in this new, yet never-quite-enough freedom.

Amidst all of the things to be grateful for this season are a few shows I’m happy to be a part of – I hope you will join me. I should warn you that the extreme introvert living inside of me will likely rear it’s shy head, so you might have to look for me hiding in plain sight and wanting but not wanting you to stop by and say hello. Also, if you’re not following my FB feed you’ll have missed seeing this interview at http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/southwest-valley/2016/09/01/esther-beler-wodrichs-detailed-art-celebrates-faith/89730122/.
