if you build it…..

I’ve been traveling for work and otherwise not in the studio enough to make much new art outside of my journals. my day job changed last fall, leaving me with more time to create but somehow I haven’t gotten very far……

the universe has sent a few things my way lately that make me think it’s time to start moving again.

shortly after updating this site, I was contacted by someone who has several other pieces of my work and wanted to buy one of the compass rose series pieces. my first sale in a while. it always makes me happy to send work off into the world, and this one has a good home. encouraging.

compass rose series, mixed media on board,

a friend was offered an opportunity to participate in a first friday art walk. she was given this little shed as a gallery and asked if i wanted to join her. we decided to call it pam & marianne’s playhouse, bring paint markers and invite folks to help us decorate the interior.

we had a blast- so many friends stopped in, and so many people made art on the walls. the best part was when the young man who used to have this for his bedroom, and his father who built it for him stopped by. it was such a great experience to hear the history of the building and to see how excited they were about what was happening with it that night.

this is what I love about art- touching people through creativity. these nudges from the universe have me thinking about how/where else to start re engaging. curious to see what else comes up…..
