Boise Weekly Art Auction 2020

The Boise Weekly is our independent weekly newspaper. Local artists donate artworks that grace the cover each week. Every year the paper hosts the Boise Weekly Cover Art Auction. Artworks are auctioned off with a percentage of the sale going to the artist and the remainder going to the paper’s art grants fund. Then, the grants are given back to arts organizations and artists in the community.READ MORE

The 100 Day Project Continues

Days 28 – 36 of the 100 Day Project by Lisa Flowers Ross.

I am now about 3/4 of the way through the 100 Day Project, a daily art commitment. At first, I started painting in a small sketchbook (about 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ square). There are 50 paintings in my sketchbook. All of them started with something I saw. They vary in degrees of abstraction. (See days 1-27 in my previous post.)READ MORE

100 Day Art Project

Day 20 of the 100 Day Project by Lisa Flowers Ross.
When the stay-at-home orders from the governor started, I thought, “Now I will have some time to do the things that I have been wanting to do.” Since I work from home normally, it isn’t that much different. But I was thinking the rest of the world is going to have to slow down and I do not have to worry about doing so many things to try to catch up. I had great ideas about art experiments to try, studio cleaning and being very productive in the studio. A couple of months in, and none of that has happened! To remedy that, I committed to a 100 day art project.
