21 Days of Christmas GIVEAWAYS!

 

In the spirit of this giving season, I've decided to do a giveaway—of something from my studio—everyday for 21 days starting December 1st...tomorrow! That's right, I will be giving away 21 items from my studio to 21 lucky people.  Anything from paintings to prints to random things in my studio I feel like giving away. Interested? Then keep reading!

The giveaway will take place daily on Instagram starting December 1st, so if you're not on Instagram, get on it. It's free to join, and you'll be glad you did.  Follow me on Instagram here: @jenmeyerart

Everyday on Instagram I will post a picture of what the giveaway item is for that day, and all you have to do to enter each day is tag a friend on that post and you will be entered.  Simple and fun, and perfect for unique gift-giving, or just to give yourself a little something. 

See you on Instagram! :-)

Pictures of my studio...



My studio space

So I’ve been in my new studio for a few weeks now.  After getting the heat problem under control…I gotta say,  I’ve been really productive!  Feeling really inspired to paint, paint, paint has been a great way to start things off right in LA.  I can get messy in here and it's nice to see my finished paintings starting to pile up. Here's a few pictures of my new space and work:

And next month I’ll be opening my studio doors for the Inglewood Open Studios on November 14th and 15th, 2015.  If you’re in the LA area please do come by and say ‘HI’.

I’m a little nervous about opening up my doors…lots of people I don’t know in my personal space…but I’m doing it anyway.  Hopefully some good things will come out of it.

I'm moving to LA

SO, I'm moving to LA.LA_Skyline_Mountains2 My hubby got a great job offer there and as artist, I can work anywhere. So, we are heading south.  I've loved living in San Francisco and have made many good friends here, ALL of which are invited to come stay with us in LA (not all at once though).  SO warmer weather, a new studio, a new apartment and new art to be made...in Los Angeles.

I'll be cleaning out my studio here in SF in efforts to lighten my load for the move and not hold onto too much extra stuff.  SO if you follow me on these social media sights I will be posting items for sale in an unconventional 'art sale/yard sale' style, first come first serve.

Follow me here for the sales, giveaways and almost daily updates on instagram, weekly(ish) on Facebook:

Photo shoot with Oakland photographer Scott Murphy

Jen_Meyer (1 of 1)  

I've had the lovely experience of working with Oakland photographer Scott Murphy!

I can not tell you enough how nice it is to work with a pro and have beautiful images as a result.

Usually I'm not too keen of my own photos and images of myself, so the fact that Scott can take an image of me and I love it is....

well...

magic.

So I'm sharing a few of my favorites here.

The yarn installation in the skylight SHELTER was installed by artist Eric Rieger 'Hottea'.

It somehow matches perfectly with my color palette and that was not planned.

You can see more of his beautiful and laborious installation work here and here.

A special thanks to Storefront which is where these pictures were taken and where my art is hanging on the walls until the end of April 2015.

If you are in the San Francisco area please stop by Storefront's headquarters to see the show.

49 Geary St Suite 530.

8:30-5:30 M-F

The building is full of beautiful galleries and amazing art.

Also a big thank you to my hubby, Tommy, for the extra assistance through out the day

San Francisco Art Walk

Just a quick post to let everyone know I'll be showing my work at 49 Geary St #530 (5th floor) in San Francisco for the month of April.

This Thursday is SF art walk and I will be there from 5:30-7:30.JenMEYER_PORTRAIT.2015I will post pictures once everything is hung and pretty on the walls.

Wish me luck!

What's happening

Another New Years resolution for myself is to get out there.  I can be an introvert when it comes to showing my work in person and especially drawing live in person.  But I find that when I do these things anyway, despite the uncertainty and fear that comes along with exposing myself as an artist to the World, I end up having more fun in the end and wonder what I was so scared about in the first place.  It ends up giving me more esteem about my work and helps me understand on a deeper level how to clarify what I want in life.  SO I'm not allowing myself to recluse into my studio for too too long this year.  I'd like to do at least one event every month and stay active going to other artists openings and museum exhibits consistently throughout the year. So here's what's on the schedule so far:

January 23rd 2015 :

Fame By Frame

I will be drawing live at the Fame by Frame exhibit party at the Bay Meadows Welcome Center.  This should be a fun event!  An instagram photo exhibit and contest. There will be music, food, and Silvi the poet!

RSVP here.

 

January 24th 2015:

I have donated a lots of art and prints for the silent auction to raise funds at the 1st year Anniversary Gala fundraiser for The Humane League.

Gotta support the animals :-)

Get your tickets now and join in on the cause.

 

 

 

And there will be more to come, I will update everyone as things pop up.

Photo resolution

I'm off to a productive new year! One of my first goals was to photograph paintings that I have finished that no one has seen yet (well besides a very few).

I worked on most of these paintings last year in my studio in Colorado and finished them off here in California.

Now that I have photographed them...they are also listed for sale.  If you click on the titles of the paintings you will see more pictures and how to purchase.

Pop-ups and Holiday Shows

DSC_0466Hello Everyone! Here's a picture from my first pop up at Rickshaw Bagworks in the San Francisco Dogpatch neighborhood this past Sunday.  I really enjoyed talking with everyone that came by, it's nice getting out of the studio and talking to people in person.  I even sold an original painting and some prints which made me feel pretty good about trying out the pop-up scene.  It is a big time investment and a lot of work lugging artwork around, I'll say that.  It helped having Tommy(my husband) to help and our dog Wasabi helped out too-just by being cute and letting everyone pet him.

Next up for me is the ETSY Indie Holiday Emporium Show in San Fransisco this November 29th-30th at Pier 35.  If you're in the San Francisco please come by and say 'hi'.  There will be over 200 vendors and lots of holiday shopping happening. I'm trying out this type of craft show to see if it's something I'd like to do more of in the future.  And to encourage people to come out in person I have been slaving away making prints on panels 4x4inch and 6x6 inch to sell at the show AND will have buy two get one free prints for sale AND new original pieces for sale. yay.  I'll be posting pictures on instagram during the event if you want to tune in form afar.

Hope everyone is having a nice time gearing up for the Holidays and enjoying the season change.  This is my first winter in California.  It's been raining for two days and that's the first sign of winter here. I've got my furry slippers and sweater on!

Feel free to email me if you have any holiday requests or questions about ordering art!  jen@jenmeyerart.com

Cheers!

Jen
