Exciting Announcement!

I am so pleased to announce that my husband, Terry Dyke, will be taking over the organizational aspects of our web design and development business, Pixel Wranglers: and my design business, Marilyn Fenn Design: Terry will be taking over the responsibilities for scheduling, specs, contracts, and billing because, frankly, he is better at all that than I am, AND it will free me up to focus on the design aspects of any web design, graphic design and illustration projects (and allow me to spend more time painting!).

The 4th Annual GROW Forth! Show

The 4th Annual GROW Forth! art exhibition and fund-raiser for Urban Patchwork was a great success and a lot of fun last night. I had four pieces that found new homes. :) Thanks to everyone who came out, to everyone who helped with the preparations, the event, the setup and breakdown, and thanks especially to Anne Woods for her masterful organizing of this amazing one-night event!

New Work: Food Forest

"Food Forest" | Acrylic on canvas | 24" x 30" | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- I really enjoyed painting this new work of three artichokes in three stages of growth as seen in an urban food forest. This painting will be part of my work at the one-night only 4th Annual GROW Forth! art show benefiting Urban Patchwork Neighborhood Farms here in Austin, happening this Saturday.

Art Opening This Saturday Night

GROW Forth! Art Opening -- I will be one of six artists showing our work for the one night only 4th Annual GROW Forth! art show. Also showing will be metal sculptor Anne Woods, photographer and painter Ann Woodall, painter Pat Strong, ceramic artist Michael Merritt, and mixed media artist Stephanie Rubiano.

There is a curiously sharp sense of joy – or perhaps better expressed, a sense of mild ecstasy – that comes when you find the particular form required by your creation.
