Up And Running

Well, the bad news is that I had to buy a new computer a few weeks ago.  The good news is that I discovered that much of the software problems I was dealing with must have been the start of my computer dying.  With the new computer I can actually blog without much difficulty!

This year has been a very busy one for our family.  I am now represented by three galleries that are keeping me pretty busy.  As a result I didn't have time to enter any mini shows this year.  Hopefully, next year I will be able to do so.  In addition, I spent considerable time this year planting a perennial garden.  I planted may of the old favorites such as hollyhocks, zinnias, delphiniums and of course lilac trees.  I have been wanting to spend some time painting victorian inspired still life pieces and thought it would be fun to incorporate my own flowers.  I can never do anything the easy way!

Just today I mailed my last commission for Christmas presents.  As a result I cannot show my latest works for fear of messing up someones surprise.  I can however, show you my favorite work of art, my 3-1/2 week old grandson.  Isn't he beautiful?  Not that I am a proud grandmother.  No, not me.  I may have to do a miniature portrait of him.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful joy filled Christmas and safe prosperous New Year.  I can't really believe it will be 2013 in a couple of weeks.  Where does time go?

Till next time,

September? Really?

Photos listed are two new galleries where my work can be purchased.  Mackinac's Little Gallery and Crooked Tree Art Center in Petoskey, Michigan.  Please excuse this short note, but I have been unable to get my e-blogger to work correctly with the addition of Chrome needed to support it!!!

Grand Phone Call

Well, I don't ever post the same painting twice, but I have good reason. I received a phone call yesterday telling me that my painting Grand Arrival had been juried into the 2012 Mackinac Island Art Exhibit that will take place this summer at the Manoogian Museum on the island. The theme for this exhibit is the Grand Hotel in honor of its 125th birthday. I was completely blown away to learn that their were 80 entries and only 15 were chosen for the exhibit, mine being one of them!!! The best part is that their are six cash prizes to be announced in June. Wish me luck!

Artists Of Mackinac Island

I am pleased to announce that I have been invited to participate in an exhibition at the Crooked Tree Art Center in Petoskey, Michigan, entitled Artists of Mackinac Island. The Crooked Tree Center is the premiere gallery in Northern Michigan for visual and performing arts as well as educational programs. This exhibition will encompass both main galleries and run from June 2nd through September 2nd. More details as they become available.

Beginning in May, I will also have a new gallery representing my work. I am very excited about this opportunity! I will be sharing the details of this gallery in a later blog.
