Tomorrows "Show Day"!!

My mini pistachio cupcakes are in the oven & I'm wrapping up the wiring of my last two paintings. Let me say, the last two weeks have gone by way too fast!!

For some reason I'm more excited than nervous! After all, painting is a form of self expression & it's something that nobody can tell me I'm wrong at.... these are my ideas & my love going into these pieces :) What I love most is knowing what each painting means to me, but conversing with others & listening to them tell me what each piece means to them; it's so interesting....

So, most of these pieces I've been working on non-stop the last 2 months. I haven't had a show in over 8 months and just loved getting back into my "studio". The last few months have been long 5-11 hour days (aside from my day job) and I couldn't be more happy spending that time with a brush in hand! I'm just so fortunate to be able to invest in something I love to do and share it with others :)  I'm proud of all my work and ecstatic to share all of my new paintings with everyone!

Well, thanks for viewing &  I hope to see you at the show tomorrow :)  View my "Events" tab for details or click this link for the e-vite!!!

New Beginnings

September 23, 2013

As my first entry, I would firstly like to say Welcome! For those of you who have viewed my website before, you will see that I have completely re-vamped it; I hope it is now easier to navigate! 

Please make sure to also view any upcoming events and event details under my "Events" tab! I will be having a show during the 2nd week of October and can't wait to post the details! Please save the date for October 11, 2013 :)

As you can see, I've named this journal entry "New Beginnings" because the last few months of 2013 has been just that! I've had so many changes in my life  & am thankful for all of them, good and bad. I've reflected a lot of these changes in my new pieces and have been overwhelmed with the creative thought process.  So many ideas, new techniques I've been approaching & some hard core experimentation with new mediums and surfaces. 

Along with my paintings, I've been in the process of re locating, writing music and will be getting back in the studio to record some new tracks for an updated demo. I also sing, and can't wait for this creativeness to overflow and show in who I want to represent myself as a singer/songwriter.  

Lastly, I just can't wait to see where all these changes take me. I can't wait to post photos of my new work, photos from my upcoming art show; both before and after, and some of the new photography I've been working on.

Thank you again for reading my first entry and I can't wait to keep you posted with everything NEW that is upcoming!
