Ugly Fish?

Hello fellow artists and art enthusiasts!

My name is Felicia Follum and this is my first post for Art-a-Day, though I have been following the blog since March. I am an emerging artist and will be graduating from the University of Wyoming in May.  My artwork tends to focus on social issues.  My most recent body of work deals with African American religious culture and my next body will be dealing with human trafficking.

To see more about me and my artwork check out my blog, website, or Facebook page.  But for now I would like to share one of the watercolor studies I painted a couple days ago. This painting was supposed to be a study of cloth using my dad’s old fish tie. I ended up drawing the fish instead of the waded fabric at the other end.  I really enjoy the colors in this painting...

My mom hated the fish tie and gave it to me in high school.  I kept it and entered it in  an ugly tie contest at Alexander's, a jewelry shop.  It won enough for a free pearl necklace.

Card Show at DS Watkins

A great show and a wonderful experience, thank you Deborah!
The Downtown Kennewick art community is the best! These businesses have supported many artists throughout the years and deserve support from the artists in return. The big art stores, fast food restaurants, and Fu-Fu coffee shops may deserve some of our business, but ask yourself: “Do they support local art and artists?
Support those that support you by spending a portion of your money at those businesses that participate in ArtWalk and other artistic projects!

Card show at DS Watkins Studio

BIG thanks for the show last night, and the after party. I had a truly awesome time. The company was terrific, the atmosphere was amazing, and the nibbles were ... yum. =)

Bespeckled Drawing

For the past 2 months I've been reading an incredible biography about Woody Allen. It's full of interviews, personal accounts, and details about his work process. As an artist I'm always looking for somebody with a stellar work ethic, and with Woody being writer, directer and (most of the time) an actor in his movies, I think he makes the cut. Sure, his personal life is well.. sketchy, but I'm interested in the creative side. Which is why I'm stoked, because tonight I'll be watching Annie Hall for the first time. So in honour of that bespeckled hopeless dude, I drew a portrait of him.
Not my best work, but I think I get an A for effort.

Stay Artsy & DFTBA
