From a Dream

Maybe I ate too much on Thanksgiving, or the after dinner drinks really did a number on me. But since last Thursday, I've had some interesting dreams. One where I'm walking through a garden that reminds me of Costa Rica but it's really Spain or Chile (you know how you just know this in dreams), under a trellis filled with vines with flowers that are blooming as I walk through. The air is soft and humid but not thick. Leaves and hints of flowers are close and saturated, then distant and smoky. I couldn't stop thinking about it all weekend so I worked it out on the canvas and created this new painting entitled "Free Spirit".
"Free Spirit", mixed media on 3" deep canvas

Shop Local: Buy Art

For this holiday season: art makes a great gift!! My studio will be open on Black Friday (Nov 25, 11am-3pm) and Small Business Saturday (Nov 26, 11am-4pm). When you purchase using your AMEX card on Nov 26, you'll get a $25 statement credit!
 Other upcoming studio events:
-First Thursday ArtWalk, December 1, 6-9pm
-Holiday Open House, December 3, 11am-4pm
There are sooooo many good reasons to shop local:
  • shopping local has 3X the economic impact than shopping at corporate big-box stores 
  • mass-produced items from big-box stores are transported from far-away factories - - in trucks, boats, and planes 
  • my artwork is hand-made and created by me!
    (Now that's green. :)
  • you'll get a free art print with every purchase made at my studio on Nov 25th, 26th, and Dec 1st and 3rd (while supplies last)
  • on December 3rd, I'll be raffling off an original painting (worth $550):  you don't want to miss this!

It's Shopping Time!!!

Yep, it's already that time of the year. Hard to believe, really. And you know you have people to buy gifts for that you have no frickin idea what to get them. So here's a thought:  be smart, buy art!! To make it easy, I'm putting a little something special together for you at my studioa holiday open house on Saturday, December 3rd, from 11am-4pm. There'll be lots of great gift options as well as an art raffle - - where you could win a gift for yourself or that special someone (and they better be special or you should just keep it for yourself :).  More details to come in an upcoming invitation!
