It's My Bloggiversary!

I completely forgot! A year ago on Oct. 17th I posted "Dancing At Kule Loklo" to introduce myself to the Bloggosphere. It's no secret that I didn't know what I was doing or getting myself into but I have to say that I'm more comfortable working in cyberspace now and more importantly, I've met lots of cyber friends. It has been terrific connecting with so many artists and on the days when I have no reserves to keep going with my art, I get rejuvenated and inspired by all of your artwork and kind words.
So here's a cyber toast. . . . . To every happiness ~ visually, musically, spiritually, health-illy ~
Many Blessings past and present and many more to come.
Here's a sneak peak at one of the ten paintings I'm currently working on.

The Wonder Twins!

Happy 6th Birthday! ! ! ! ! ! !

Six years and nine months ago when the doctor stunned us with the news about having twins, we were very quiet at first, then we laughed and we haven't stopped enjoying that laughter since. Eric and Lily are sometimes wonder twins, sometimes blunder twins and always twins full of spirit and kindness and are a constant source of love (and entertainment!)

Solo Show Success

Since this was my first solo show, I didn't know what to expect and kind of worried that not too many people would come but I was pleasantly surprised and relieved that it was a great turn out. I was a little overwhelmed but truly enjoyed meeting so many great people. I appreciate all the positive feedback and was a great feeling to notice how everyone responded to different paintings. I think part of being an artist is when you're working, to dig deep within you and create something worth looking at or feeling from or responding to and then to send it out into the world for others to be a part of that creation.

I have to thank everyone at the Lynn House Gallery for all your hard work and allowing me to show my work and share pieces of my spirit, and to the folks at GATO for hosting all that delicious food! It couldn't have been any better! and thank you to everyone that attended, all my family and friends and new friends and acquaintances. Thanks for being a part of this wonderful event. And, a very special thanks to our family elder who was so gracious enough to do the native blessing before the show.
