Solo Art Show at the Aar Gallery!

For the entire month of October, I will be having a solo show at the Aar River Gallery in Westminster. Primarily I will be showcasing the art from the upcoming children’s book “Lights On!” to be official published October 1. Come, stop by, and see the originals.

  • There will be a First Friday Reception
    on Oct. 6, from 6 to 9.
  • Hear me talk about the process of creating the illustrations for the book during the Second Saturday Art Walk on Oct. 14 from 1 to 5:00.
  • Also showing will be moderately priced originals, books, and prints. Please stop by and support this wonderful gallery and this great event.

The New Hummel Illustration Shop

If you haven’t noticed, there’s a new menu button on this Hummel Illustration website called “Shop”. The shop page is designed to showcase three types of items: recently finished originals, commercial products that include my art, and independently published works.

Any time I finish a piece of original art, I will temporarily put it in the shop to be available for sale. Currently, the item on the page now is a horse drawing I did a few weeks ago. I was able to get it matted and framed, and I think it looks pretty slick. It will remain here for a while, either until it sells, or until a new piece of art takes its place.

It’s also here where I hope to sell any commercial product that happens to include my art (so when “Lights On!” is released in October, I will feature it here).

It’s also here where our independently published works will be available for sale. Published under Cherished Solutions, most of these books and pamphlets are actually instructional books that I have been writing over the course of several years of teaching. As they get completed, they will be valuable resources for any learning art student, and will be available as either an instant download or as printed book mailed upon purchase. Expect to see my workbook on drawing folds to be released around the end of August. (More on that in an upcoming blog post.)

For those of you who remember Painting for Life, this page will be a carryover from the old Painting for Life website. Currently, the PFL website is down, but I hope to resurrect it one day, and make it a more permanent place to showcase my fine art, which will be accessible via a link from this Shop page.

For now, the intent of the Shop page is a temporary display of those items I wish to feature, with the full archive available soon from Painting for Life. And, if you simply cannot live without the framed horse drawing, I suggest you jump on it soon, as these items move quickly!
