It’s time for the annual Christmas Show ( http://www.randybrodnax.com/christmas_show.html ), December 1, 2, and 3. This show is held at the Sons of Hermann Hall, 3414 Elm Street, in Dallas. If you have never been, make this the first year of an annual tradition. There are terrific arts, fine crafts, and jewelry for sale – just in time for the holidays.
This will be my final show for the year and I have several new originals. I hope that I see you there but, if not, I wish you and those you love a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas.
After last year’s wild and crazy physical adventures, we’ve had to let the site take a bit of a back seat. But we are now rolling! Several prints were added yesterday and today – and more to come. I’m not happy about the way our pricing “flag” overlaps the images – but we will worry about that later. Just click on the image to bring up a clear view.
I am working madly to get ready for the Fall shows. I have a great lineup and am especially excited to show in a new location in September in Lincoln, Nebraska!
We are focusing on getting the prints loaded first, and then we will update the show calendar.
Thank you for your patience and support!
Get ready for some awesome music and incredible arts and crafts at the Smoky Hill River Festival in Salina, Kansas. Visit www.riverfestival.com/ for show details. I’m heading that way on Thursday and hoping for great weather and a solid turnout of high energy visitors. The show runs from June 8th to the 11th, with Festival Gates opening at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, gates open at 10:00 a.m., and entertainment begins at 11:00 a.m.
I always enjoy this show. It has a family-friendly vibe, with enough range in art and entertainment for every age group. I will have a number of my prints in the kids area, and really enjoy when young people and their parents drop by to talk about the piece they have chosen.
Hope to see you there!
I am incredibly grateful to be back in the swing of the Spring Shows! Completed two in the Houston area these past two months (Houston Bayou and The Woodlands). I’m preparing now for the Oklahoma City Arts Festival. I’ve been fortunate to be a participant in this show for most of my career as an artist. It is a marathon to get through physically, but always such a delight in terms of customer interaction, seeing artist friends, and the terrific music and art at the show.
If you are in the Oklahoma City area starting Tuesday the 24th of April and going through that next Sunday, please swing by and say hello. I have a number of new originals that I’m excited to display.
I’ll be sharing the rest of my schedule in a future post. But for now, back to the drawing table – literally!
I don’t know about you, but I typically let a new year slide in pretty quietly. My wife and I might go outside and pop a confetti blaster, but often we just pull ourselves off the couch and head to bed. This year was much the same, except it was a bit more of a challenge to get up and around.
Back in September, I had a kidney surgery (all went pretty well) and by November was feeling really well. I was looking forward to getting ready for the one show I had not had to cancel. My wife was making plans for a show as part of her newest venture making homemade soaps. On November 12th, we woke up to a lovely morning, went out for breakfast, visited a local Farmer’s Market, and were home by 11. A few minutes later, I went out to get the mail delivery from our mailbox and was hit by a car. I don’t remember the event itself, thank goodness. All plans went on hold, and for the past two months I’ve been focused once again on a grueling recovery process. Thankfully, I am almost recovered. I lost some teeth in the encounter with the car, and I will get the denture replacements next week. I have some scarring on my face and hands, but my brain appears to be intact. Last week I started drawing again for the first time and it felt really good.
I have a big spring lineup firming up and will post the dates here as soon as available. My wife will be able to return to getting my prints online. We are incredibly grateful to God for his many mercies over the last four months. We are grateful for the friends and family that he surrounded us with who kept both our spirits lifted. It has been a very difficult time, but could have been so much worse. I’m very glad to be alive and I look forward to seeing you all at shows this spring.
Life is unpredictable – hug your family and friends every day!
