Glorious weekend

What a glorious weekend! The weather was perfect, and the days were filled with family and friends. I went on a wonderful bike ride with my husband and 10-year-old son, along a lovely bike path that had plenty of inspiration to offer in gentle breezes, nature’s music and beautiful scenery. We took a friend out […]

Going with the flow

So today I finally decided to take a deep breath, exhale and try some intuitive painting for this month’s intuition theme for Creative Every Day. For some reason, I’ve been resisting the letting go that painting intuitively requires. But better late than never. I chose to just pick out a few colors–a brown, a bronze, […]

Busy weekend

I had a wonderfully busy weekend. Here is a list of all I accomplished: I visited a Rhode Island business surplus warehouse where I can get all the items I need for displaying paintings, jewelry and handmade cards. I felt like a little girl running loose in a candy shop! I owe thanks to the […]

More good news

Now that it is official I can announce that I was recently elected to the Dorchester Arts Collaborative’s board of directors. DAC supports and encourages the arts in Dorchester, one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Boston. I’m honored to have been elected, and I’m very excited about making a contribution to such an important […]

So much to do

So much to do. That’s a good thing. I feel that I have momentum in getting some things done regarding my art business, so I’m trying to not slow down. Meeting with the owner of a gallery that will show my work has me in high gear. I’ll be making more jewelry to offer, creating […]

YAY! A gallery

I am so excited! I just returned from meeting with the owner of a new gallery in Cumberland, R.I.—Rhodes Gallery. She was interested in featuring this acrylic painting “Hat Ladies”, as well as some of my handmade greeting cards and jewelry. Did I mention that I’m excited! This is the first time I’ve gotten artwork […]

Rain and remembrance

I awoke to rain today. The sound of it–the music of it–made me think of my grandmother, who died many years ago. She lived in the country in Sumter County, Ala., and had a tin roof on her house. Oh, I can smell the red clay of that area right now. It is so funny […]

Intuition lesson via GPS

This month’s theme for Creative Every Day is “intuition.” This week, I learned a lesson about intuition from, of all things, my GPS (a lovely gift from my husband). Driving from Worcester, Mass., back to my office in Norton, Mass., after interviewing an artist for a story that I’m writing a profile on, I decided […]

May goals

I stumbled upon this wonderful artists’ blog from a comment she left about my work, which lead me to this web site about setting business goals. Since I have so many goals that don’t seem to be getting met, I thought it would be great to join this blog group to see whether it would […]
