    New Traditions

    Remember when Thanksgiving was simple? You would get up early, waking to the smell of all the regular holiday favorites wafting down the hall, the sound of plates descending from their cabinet dwellings, and remember it was Turkey Day?  Turkey Day!  You had been waiting for a month for the time off from school, time to hang out with your cousins, time out in the backyard, the warm sun taking the chill off the newly cool air.  Then Mom would call everyone inside.  You found your place at the kids’ table, eyeballing the black olive plate and deviled eggs….and yes, the turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, and all that jazz.  A…

I have been working on a painting the last several days….and nights.  It has been in my mind for a month.   I am creating it for an art show. The Details Is 2012 the End of Times? Doomsday?

    Double Feature Weekend

    I had a great weekend.  It started with a trunk show at Feather’s Beauty Lounge where my friends Amy and Charlotte set up with me for a great little artists’ corner in the mani-pedi room. Hey, our art matches that nail polish!  My dreamcatcher jewelry made a special appearance. The next day I set my table up at the Farmers’ Market with a painting station beside it. I painted all day long, creating small wooden canvases to which I will eventually add wire hangers dressed with beads. I even got a bit of help with my wooden pieces. ADORABLE!  I went back to painting today. These little pieces are addictive.…
