SPRING AWAKE!!

Winter has been gray and rainy here.  The sun has finally come out and the snow drops and crocuses are blooming!  Even the tree frogs are singing at night.

I have completed and sent my first art show applications for the summer.  I will not know until March which will accept me, so I wait.  I did make some new pieces as I needed them for the application photographs.

I thought you would like to see a few.  I will update as I know more.  Peace and joy!

The days are getting longer!!!!!

Yes, I know, it is January. But once the days start getting longer I get excited about the coming spring and summer and outdoor art shows.

I don’t know yet which shows I will be juried into, I will keep you all updated.

Weather is challenging in many parts of the country now, it is raining heavily here today.  But with my newly created garden art pieces, we have flowers and rainbows.

Peace and kindness to all.

 

Jingle Bells!!!

Can’t believe Christmas is right around the corner!!  I am having fun getting ready for Christmas.  I am presently enjoying making unique Christmas ornaments and decorations.  These will be perfect for holiday gifts on a budget!  If you have a bigger budget and special gift in mind, I have some special creations for you to view.

GREAT WEEKEND AT LAKE OSWEGO ART IN THE PARK

SO…IT WAS HOT…but a lot of fun at the 52nd annual Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts.  The place was hopping, lots of great artists, food, music and fun.  This was my first opportunity to participate in this long running show and it turned out to be one of my most successful ones, even with the heat.  DID I MENTION IT WAS HOT??

I saw many old friends and met some new ones.  Great positive comments about my pieces and many smiles about my CARPET DIEM work.  I will have the last of those pieces at the Gresham Arts Festival 2015 Saturday, July 18, 2015  9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
