a bit of this and that


these aren't new or for the most part available i just thought it was about time to post something and i couldn't decide on what so a selection seemed a good way to do it. thank you everyone for all the comments on the blog and flickr and emails over the last few days, truly appreciated and as i am ever so slowly working my way through responding to everyone i want to say if you are awaiting a response from me ever please feel free to email again, i have a terrible habit of beginning emails and not finishing and sending them and a little bit of nagging is fine with me.
also i've started finalizing the art festivals i'll be attending this year and there is a link on the right hand side of the blog that i'll keep updated as shows are added to my schedule. i do regret that i won't be attending the austin arts festival this year but hope to be returning the next year, baby sitting has to be the main priority for deciding which shows to attend again this year but hopefully next year travelling will be back to being a bit easier.
and one more thing, over in the galleries of the sister project they are featuring one of my favorite painters camilla engman, definitely worth a visit.

I recently stumbled across your blog, and have fallen in love with your work! This image is so wonderful - I want it to be like an advent calendar where I can click on each person and read a secret story about them :-)

they look just lovely....oh I miss some of the wonderful shows I did in my pre-kid painting life. Des Moines took such good care of their artists, and I had such a good time (minus the intense humid heat) That show and Cherry Creek Arts Festival were my two favourite ones to do...

thanks everyone.
i love the mosaic, it's kind of funny because it's the way i see them mainly, in my home and at shows they are always in large groups so it's how i think of them so it's kind of funny they all go off alone in the world.
the first lady in the third row is one of my favorites too, her hair style has lived on in many other paintngs.
sad not to be going to austin or cherry creek this year but new shows are always fun to try and never been to iowa or tennessee.
