It's funny what people claim as their New Year's Resolution. I hate making them but always do with the hope it might kickstart something positive. I can honestly say I've NEVER stuck with one, but I have a good feeling about 2018. My New Years Rezzie is to put on an art show, and create a body of work specific to said art show. It's been a while since I have put together an art event and i'm ready. Great thing is, I absolutely Love the Artisans On The Ave gallery in Lake Worth, so I already have my venue! Would you like to attend? Sign up for my newsletter here.
Now...last year was a strange bird for me. Big life changes have forced me to make some big girl decisions. I am eager to open "The Art Cart" and take the art to the road but also, I want to develop my online presence. I have so many inspirations that I have a hard time turning it off at night. My Dad has inspired me my entire artistic life to stretch my legs and take as many creative chances as possible. I have some great ideas and I can't wait to get started. My work is so much stronger now! I am starting to think about the next level.
I hope your New Year is as inspiring as I hope mine will be. Make your voice count, take some chances, and by all means...make it your own. Best wishes for a Healthy New Year!
When my five siblings and I would get up on Christmas morning, the glow of the presents under a our beautiful tree was so magical. Although most of the gifts were wrapped in different shades of red, they all seemed to take on different shades of blue at that hour. The sun wasn't quite up but we knew Santa had been and gone. We weren't to touch anything until both parents were awake. Truth is, they probably just went to sleep. Santa was very good to us. He always new just what we wanted and even introduced us to some things we didn't even know we would love. That Santa knows everything.
This season I hope you can find something perfectly unique for someone to love in my store. This
Pre-Holiday I decided I was going to felt some things I had not yet tried. I made a Cat Mermaid titled "Catfishin'" A giraffe titled "Walking Tall" the Billiest of Goats and a Dragon titled...you guessed it..."Mother of Dragons". I wasn't done! I created a mermaid, two seahorses, a Doe named "Audrey" and a Pink Flamingo that is so absolutely precious. I've been having a blast! It's been so much fun tackling some new "Salt Life" subjects. My shelves at the gallery are packed and I have a "nice list" of custom projects scheduled for Santa to deliver!
I hope I see or hear from all of you over this holiday either in one of my classes or at the gallery.
I hope your Holiday is filled with Love, Friendship and all that is Merry!
For years I have been sculpting Halloween decor out of chicken wire, monster mud and burlap. I love decorating both the inside and outside of my house. I typically aim for October 1st but 2017 threw a wrench at me and it went up late. Now, my husband and I get to sit outside and enjoy once again enjoy the dance of our ghost carousel as the sun goes down.
