Hello Beautiful Art Friends,
This year seems to be going faster than I would like! On January 15, 2017 I had my first talk at HGSA in Escondido. I was invited to speak about Art and Spirit. I had a hands on collage project for attendees to participate and make it interactive. I am pleased to say that the talk was a success and got so much great feedback.
As a result from the talk I sold a painting to a new collector and I was booked to do a workshop at The Healthy Spirit in Chula Vista. It's called "Introduction to SoulCollage(R)" and if you live in San Diego and would like to attend, simply email me with your reservation. The workshop will take place on April 8, 2017 from 6pm-8pm, and the cost is only $20.00 per person. All materials will be provided, no art experience necessary, so come join me on a self discovery adventure through collage cards!
I've been busy creating small abstracts again, and began a new painting that it's probably a result of my collage work. It's different and can't wait to share it with you.
I am not participating in any group shows or galleries this year. I've pulled back as I'm moving at the end of the year and the search for a small town feel with clean air and low crime has taken more time than I anticipated.
It's great to keep my life simple and focus on the joy of painting without promoting the art through different venues as I often do.
Here is to a New Year, full of mystery and adventure!
