Sending some Christmas cheer. This is one of my Christmas cards I painted a few years ago of a Gingerbread boy. They are currently for sale at the Paint Creek Center for the Arts Holiday Market.
Welcome to my blog. Sit back, have a cup of coffee and read about the latest.

Living in Michigan can be challenging in the winter months. It is October now and winter will be upon us soon. When the weather is nice you have to seize the day--Carpe diem! I should have been doing lots of other things but I went for a walk in the local park and took some pictures of the beautiful trees and the always entertaining ducks.

I had two painting accepted into the Our Town show which is at The Community House in Birmingham, Michigan. I was asked if i would permit them to show my work on a Fox 2 News segment to promote Our Town. I said sure! I told all my friends. I was so excited! When they did the segment- my painting was nowhere to be found. Short life in the spotlight! I was disappointed but I am happy to have been accepted into the show and the opening party will be a lot of fun!

I have an upcoming show at the Paint Creek Center for the Arts in Rochester, Michigan. I will be joining my fellow members of the Sisters of the Brush at the Art center for the month of October. We will each be exhibiting at least 10 paintings. This is the painting that is on the postcard that Paint Creek designed. It looks much better full sized! The opening reception is October 3rd from 5-7 and there will also be an artist talk the same day from 4-5.

My pooch, Carson has an affinity for paper. He loves to chew, shred and basically destroy anything made of paper. Unfortunately that includes my artwork. He ran down to the basement and pulled out a painting that was drying on the floor. He grabbed it and ripped it, chewed it up a bit and carried it upstairs like a grand prize! It was not a good ending for the painting. I now have a lock on the door.
