Change is in the Air!
"Sweet Retreat" .....I love the sound of that name for my
new studio, as it represents the part of me that uses art for solace and peace, it's become a way to retreat but blossom at the same time. That in and of itself, is Sweet.....Thank you Stacey "Art Snark" for suggesting the name! Please drop me a line to pick out your colors for your custom 6x6 Sweet HeARTS!!! Congrats! I really loved all the names picked out, it was hard to choose but I decided to go with the one that most picked as a winner and one that rang true to my love for this studio space :) happy day!
This week I've been scurrying away in the studio, working on a new collection for an upcoming show and trying to tie some loose ends on a few works in progress I had going. Next Saturday (October 17th) is the Holly Arts Festival, in Pinehurst, NC. It will be my second show this year, my second show ever. I feel better prepared for this one in some ways but not where I want to be considering I knew about this since April. It just seems that I have delved in so many projects this last few months that have been sooooo encompassing of my time that I haven't been able to prepare for some other things as well as I wanted to. All we can do is take one day at a time and do the best we can do each and every day. What more can one ask?
I don't typically work in holiday motifs when painting by I do love this fallish/Halloweeny look to this collection. So much so, I might just carry it forward in another grouping or so.

Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I'm ready now to settle in for some quiet time, some nesting, some bonding with my new abode, dig into some new projects and start fresh again. This time, for the right reasons and in the right direction.
Be patient...that's something I need to do as I try to do as much as I can in a very short time.
It's all about following a dream, your dream. My dream.
Wherever the road takes you this week, may your travels be safe and your journey be full of adventure and creativity :)
Hope to see some of you next week!!
