|NOT Janine's real house! image: http://www.atopdoll.com|
When Janine and Matt had their DelSo residence painted last year I wondered if that shade of pink was reeaally what they were going for. Once their daughter was born, however, I understood. Paint your house pink and you will have a girl baby - even after two boy babies! Apparently the fact that my house was white and red, wasn't quite enough to make pink.
Prior to the birth of their third child, Janine, a certified art teacher, taught pottery at the Albany Art Room. The closure (and anticipated eventual re-opening) of the Art Room coincided beautifully with the arrival of some pink in the DelSo neighborhood and it seems that Janine has been enjoying her time at home planning her next artistic endeavor - Pink House Pottery. We've already established our neighborhood as a great place to live, eat and shop. It only seems natural to begin developing our area as a place to explore the arts. I mean, the Spectrum is already here as well as Davey Jones Locker and my wonderfully talented artist neighbors, why not a pottery place, too?
Janine is competing to win an All Over Albany - Sunmark Credit Union Startup grant of $1500 to turn her dream of having a basement studio for sharing her love of clay into a reality. Voting ends Friday so get yourselves involved by clicking here and supporting Pink House Pottery!
