Weekend work

Umbrella art

Very busy lately with everything, including my latest love, Zumba, so art hasn’t been given its proper attention. Hope to find the right balance to fit everything into life soon. For now, here are some umbrellas that I hand painted for an art council fundraiser in Boston. It was a fun assignment and I love […]

Spring flowers

The beauty of what is

This weekend was jam-packed with activities, including a wonderful birthday party at a friend’s house. It was such a great gathering outside on a slightly-chilly-but-sunny afternoon—plenty of food (including dishes I had never heard of like coo coo and fish) and lots of relaxation and fun.

April exhibit opening

I’m really excited about this exhibit at the Hope Lodge in Boston. Not only is it an opportunity to share my art, but it also is a chance to do what I always hope to do as an artist–lift the spirits of those who most need it. The Hope Lodge is an inn for out-of-town […]

The art of being social

I had a great day today! I spent the morning and part of the afternoon as a panelist at a workshop on social media for artists at the Dorchester Arts Collaborative. The internet now offers us so many platforms to share our work and connect with each other–Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Twitter, and even LinkedIn, where […]

In the stillness—inspiration

In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you. —Deepak Chopra

Following along

There’s an old saying that goes something like, “If you want to make God laugh, make plans.” I have to admit that I never really liked that saying. I think God is a lot nicer than that and more accommodating of our dreams. But, that’s another story. The saying came to mind this weekend as […]
