Will be the featured Artist for the month of April at Scarlett's Feathers Gallery. Planning on showing my ALTERED BOOKS in addition to PAINTINGS and MOSAICS....Exciting!!!! Company in town thru Monday so I am missing time in my studio....always a struggle to balance family time and my work time. (Started a new painting just moments before everyone arrived and it will have to wait till after the w/e...Who knows, maybe I'll have a better idea of where it is going if it brews (in my head) for a few days...:)

A new way of communicating with you...my Fans and Friends, new and old.
Thank you for checking out MY BLOG...and I welcome your comments, questions and suggestions.
I am planning to use this space to chat with my Fans as well as fellow artists. My goal is to share more about my artistic process, my upcoming projects and shows, my lessons learned along the way; my thoughts, challenges, and successes as I walk this exciting Journey as an artist -- perhaps, I should say "creative." That's a new term (used as a noun, rather than an adverb) I have just recently started seeing in my trade mags. I'm not sure I am ready to give up the title 'artist' -- and use 'creative' instead. Any thoughts? It sounds just the tiniest bit affected to me....Yes. I am 'creative(adverb)' and I 'create (verb)' -- but, to paraphrase Descartes, I make art therefore I am an artist.
OK, enough philosophy for the moment :)
My show, "With An Eye On Art", at the Players Theatre opened on January 11 and runs through the end of the month. I have 20 + paintings hannging there and worked like crazy for months before getting ready for the show. Hope it turns out to be worthwhile. Do any of you artists out there feel as uncomfortable as I do at openings? It is so hard for me to stand by and watch people check out -- and comment on -- my art. Kinda like getting naked in front of a room full of strangers.
