Mark your calendar for this great opportunity to view all kinds of art work and the studios where it was created.  

This is my  second time to participate in this great neighborhood event in Asheville, North Carolina. I join 14 other artists who will be opening up their homes or studios to display, sell and talk about their art. We are all part of the Kenilworth Artists Association.

Come and support your local artisans!

This year at my address – 17 Buckingham Court, two neighbors will join me.  There will be a yard full of art- jewelry, pottery and my own mixedmedia and paintings!

For more information on each artist check out  this link: Kenilworth Artist Associaton.

Two recent pieces from this fall….both mixed media pieces with ink, acrylic, collage and pen&ink…a shout out to Alena Hennessy and her Year of Painting II online class along with her Autumn Soul Retreat. IMG_2934

This little grasshopper appeared at the Soul Retreat happened in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The moutains were a perfect backdrop for inspiration as was guest artist Mati Rose who taught us some techniques for collage. The grasshopper has a bit of a back story: we had done a spirit animal meditation prior to going to paint and I was not convinced about my thoughts. Upon arriving in the studio here is what awaited me ~

How could I ignore such a greeting! As the details of his spirit were told to me by a friend, it became more apparent that his visit was not by chance …get off your haunches, jump , you have more power than you know….so here’s to you little guy! ( I still may add verse to it but for now he has found his place!

Just a quick new year greeting – be joyful – be creative – be you!

2015

I experimented with some stains and added from there with stamps and gesso and doodlesa and book text and then(phew!) sewed it all together for some cards! All in all a fun day… enjoying the journey!
