What is in the works? I will be participating in a painting boot camp for 6 weeks from late February through the month of March. Looking forward to new lessons, new inspiration and heightened passion. I have been working diligently on a business plan for 2015. My hope is to participate this year in a couple of fine art festivals or shows. I am applying now as most of them are juried meaning you have to be "chosen". For the month of February I am exhibiting two pieces at the Western Colorado Center for the arts membership show. I am showing " Wait for the clarity" as well as " On sand of Tumeric"
Lastly, I have been chosen to be the featured artist in the Grand Valley magazine for the month of March. This is a very nice magazine featuring the local treasures of this area. I will be interviewed and several images of my work will be featured. That feels like a very exciting accomplishment.
My hope is to share my art in a wider circle and to infuse the world with a touch of beauty. !! In advance, thank you to those who appreciate my art enough to share it with those that they know. Like a ripple on a pond ....
This painting below is an abstract. It feels like there is a lot of flurry and movement. There are times when my life seems similar. When the motion of all that goes on around me has me feeling like my foundation is weak. This is a reminder to listen to the stillness that dwells within each of us.
"Within you , there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself"...Hermann Hesse
I know that that stillness is immediately accessible but sometimes it is easy to feel like it is unreachable.
In a world full of fear, be courageous
In a world full of lies, be honest
In a world where few care, be compassionate
In a world full of phonies, be yourself ( authentic)
Because the world sees you. The world hopes for you
The world is inspired by you. The world can be better because of you
