FUN THINGS TO DO THIS WEEKEND: SEATTLE

Got any fun things to do this weekend?  How do you feel about art, jazz, afros and veggie burgers?  What if I told you, all of that all of these fun things to do were happening this weekend?  And...what if I told you, all of that was taking place in Seattle?!  Let us jump for joy together in 3, 2, 1... 
    

Hello, Seattle Jazz! 

I met this lovely and very talented jazz composer and pianist, Sumi Tonooka, at an elegant and lively house party a few months ago.  We instantly hit it off and talked about everything from art, jazz, and social media.  A week or so later we had the best chai tea lattes in the world at my favorite cafe and just kept in contact.  I was instantly inspired to create some art after watching her jazz performance on a YouTube video.  On June 29th, I will give an artist talk about those pieces and finally get to see her play with a band, LIVE!

Abstract Art 

Abstract art is the musical equivalent of jazz in my opinion.  But I will tell you more about that at the artist talk.  My creative process was very much like jazz with a lot of improvisation.  I decided to use my favorite acrylic paint and some black and white photos of jazz scenes for a mixed media collage.  I will have new art prints for sale on my fine art print shop site next month.  But those coming to my artist talk will get to see the original art work first.  

Fun Things To Do

Writing my own permission slip and launching a jazz inspired artist talk is one fun thing to do in Seattle.  Did I mention there will also be wine?!  Yep.  That alone is worth shouting cheers!  In the meantime, check out Sumi Tonooka playing some jazz.  You still have time to register for A Golden Evening of Art and Jazz (Deadline is 6/7 at 6pm).  

What are some other fun things to do this weekend?  Write them in the comments.  While you're thinking, I found two more fun things to do this weekend in Seattle:
