Open House and more

We had a wonderful day hosting our Phoenix Artists' Studio Open House and welcomed so many to see our work. Patricia Kidwell Lown, jewelry artist,  and I enjoyed sharing with friends, new and old, and loved having folks drop in after seeing our signs pointing them in our direction. Thank you all for making it a special day!

This is the other commissioned painting that I referred to in my last post. "The Sensory Garden" at the Montessori Center School, Phoenix, AZ is the first in a series that I am painting for the school. The garden not only has spheres representing the planets, but also living plants for the children to experience the 5 senses. It is a charming and wonderful garden created by Joe Vaz and his staff. I'm excited to continue with the series and will post more later.

In the meantime, I am preparing for my spring and summer shows - first the ACF Spring Marketplace in Flagstaff on April 12th at the Elks Lodge on North San Francisco Street. If you have a chance to be in the north country, I'd love to have you visit my booth. There will be 25 artists in a variety of mediums. Hours are 10 am to 4 pm.
