Octopi Showing Carnal thoughts

Well tomorrow night is the Octopi's 'Carnal' showing. Monterey is a small town, and i believe between the eight members, we have the promotion down. haha. If your reading this and your a local, dont forget to check the MC Weekly.

Anyways, I am very excited about the opening. This is my first time showing my watercolors on paper. This body of work takes a lighter approach to the carnal subject matter all the while really penetrating the theme of Carnal. The vibrate watercolors are well framed by a local framer with a slick and modern black frame. All work is for sale at $250.00. There are only five paintings and one has already been sold. So come by and check it out. The Collective will also be selling the official Feb to Feb calendars for $15.00, t-shirts for $12.00 and stemless wine glasses for $10 buckaroos. And for those of you who are not local and can not make it to the show and are interested in any of the above, just email me and we can go from there.

I will be blogging shortly in the next few days about all things studiomargo. Until then!

Margo Showing in Nebraska!

Yes. It is true. I am now a national artist. I am very excited about this opportunity. I will be showing at the Hayden Art Center in Lincoln, Nebraska during the month of March. The title of the exhibit is: Metamorphosis: Contemporary Statements in Encaustic. I will be showing in the largest format of my encaustic work, 18 x 24 in. But what is even more exciting about that is now i get to ship my largest format of work, in wax, to cold, cold, Nebraska. On another positive note, i am going to be showing with the women who initally taught me about the medium. So, if you are in good ol' NE during March, go check out my work in Lincoln. It is for sale. Here is the piece below, and a close up of it as well.

Life near Garrapata

The sunny days in Monterey.

With my new found freedom I am exploring all the amazing natural eye candy the Central Coast has to offer. I am, no doubt going through some amazing changes in my life. Turning the big 2-5 has turned out to be the age of learning how to remain calm. Thanks Obama, I have hope. So with all this new found hope, freedom, and creative juices oozing out of every little pour of my youthful body I am finding myself happier and lighter than before. Here are some photographs I took on a hike with a good friend. Moments like this makes me think about the big picture. Enjoy. Im going to be hopping back into the blogging routine. I just relized life doesnt slow down.
