My painting was aired this today (April 25th) on CBS Sunday morning art
segment- titled "What's Next" by Martha Teichner. I did the painting for a
challenge with a group on: The
Artist's Challenge Blog. I was thrilled to see it on the show and I want
to send a big thanks to Jessica and the crew of CBS. It was really fun!

November 1st (Saturday)was the opening night of my one person show so I wanted to give you an update.
I had a large number of small pieces alongside 10 larger works. I created some large wood panels (that I painted white)to hang on the walls. I then hung groups of the small paintings on the panels. This gave a way to hang groups of subjects together and made them stand out on large bare walls.
The show was very well attended. I always get a bit nervous when I do this sort of thing but once it got going I had a fabulous time. The people came in waves of about 15-20 at a time throughout the evening and some people that attended,I had not seen in many years. In summary, I would say that it was a GREAT success! There was great music, munchies, wonderful conversations and many paintings were sold. If you are one of the people who came by, I want to thank you and if you did not get there Sat. night, I hope you can still stop in to view it this week!
In the news! For those of you who have followed my progress on entering the Blue Moon Beer art contest - They had their event and I won FIRST PLACE! Of course, I am thrilled and wanted to let you all know the results!
Yes, I am primarily a painter but one of the great things I love about art and that has kept me going all these years, is the fact that I can create anything I want. What a power!! lol I have never followed the concept of doing "only one thing" or staying to one medium. I have always loved experimenting with a variety of mediums and at this point, have experienced most of them (in the world of art). So, I guess this is the year for exposure of my art dolls!! Exciting that I got the cover and a great 3 page spread of photos and article in the August Issue. If you want to see the cover,:
I was thrilled to see my World of Appleshire characters and their story published in the Art Doll Quarterly Magazine. For those of you who did not see it, here is a link to the layout:
