Dream Caught

“Dream Catcher”

Excitement. Melancholy. Excitement! Today is de-install day. What a journey!!!

“When There’s Laughter” was my first solo exhibition. I was allowed to create, curate and put together a complete exhibition, from the theme to the hanging of my paintings on a Walker rod system. I devised title cards with QRC’s and my website clicks grew substantially.

And even though it was an unbelievable amount of work, it was lovely, absolutely lovely. The wide learning curve has increased my knowledge of the art world, given me a working network and led to sales. Yes!

I was able to make a nice donation to the Newton Free Library and to Alzheimer’s, because I never want to forget the joy that this exhibition has given me.

I’m so grateful to my family,. Thank you🙏❤️

My Artist Statement has always been about making people smile, just a little, at least on the inside… well that happened for real! So many happy faces! And yes, mine was among them 🙂

There’s a moment in every life, when proud doesn’t describe the overall sense of amazement that one feels. Feel that 🙂

“Thank you” to everyone who stopped thru. I think you’re fabulous 🙏❤️

Sharing Art Feels Like This

“My Darling Lil’ Sis”

So grateful🙏 Long after time & the elements of this world cause the memory of this night to fade, I’ll look at the video & the photos of this exhibition & I’ll smile proudly 🥰

I paint to make people smile, at least a little bit on the inside. Smiles are contagious! When you smile, it makes me smile. It’s the same with laughter. Don’t believe me? Come, see what happens-

“When There’s Laughter” Newton Free Library 330 Homer St. Newton. Thru March 30th

Ms Diana Ross sang “if there’s a cure for this, I don’t want it. Don’t want it. If there’s a remedy, I’ll run from it…”

This is how art is suppose to feel ❤️

“When There’s Laughter”

Someone asked me if I ever had a solo art exhibition and it sort of made me laugh.

And guess what, now this is happening:

March 2 – March 30th at Newton Art Gallery.

A solo art exhibition, that will hopefully make you smile, at least just a little bit through a memory, an act of kindness or the audaciousness of life. You have to admit, it’s kinda funny that this is actually really going to be happening. Especially if you know my journey.

I hope you can make it to the opening reception. It’s sure to be a blast 🙂

Thank you in advance 🙏 And thank you to anyone who offered me words of encouragement, who stopped to see what I was up to, who shared their art with me or who just talked to me, long enough to say “Hello”.

You are appreciated. Truly 💕

This! When you make a woman cry, not from breaking her heart or hitting her, but from laughing. 🙏

If you like it here, you’re gonna love it when it’s installed.

“When There’s Laughter”
Exhibition in Newton.

Laughter is contagious, like a cold, but in a good way.

When we laugh we release a small amount of endorphins and it feels good. Laughter stimulates your heart and lungs with oxygen rich air. Yes, laughter is medicinal.

And me… I’m hoping you’ll come to my first solo exhibition and that my work might make you smile, just a little, at least on the inside 🙂

(This is incredibly humbling. From where I come from & what I’ve been through, this is so amazing. And words are a cheap replacement, because I cannot possibly begin to say what this is or what it feels like. Overwhelming, for sure, but in a fantastic way. I just want to thank everyone & anyone whose touched my ordinary life, if you purchased my work, or just cheered me onward, I felt you 🙂 And you might not know it, but you helped me to make my life extraordinary. Thank you 🙏 You are appreciated xx)

The Art of Listening

“The Art of Listening”

Some people just have a way of listening that’s powerful. Making you feel special. As if you’re the only person in a room full of people. All ears. As if what you’re saying will make the world a better place for all of us. It’s good.

Being at a bar and feeling it’s the right place, at the right time is enough. Truth is, some of the best watering holes in the world, sell more than alcohol.

They’re dispensing knowledge along with gin, vermouth & a frothy head of beer.

Is it ok if we order compassion & empathy, stirred & not shaken?

TSA: Art Not Lost

Making art for forthcoming solo exhibition

Want to know why I never lose a black laptop bag in the airport?

Simple. I don’t own one. Sry, these aren’t for sale… right now.

However, that’ll change. Come follow me! I’m making work for my forthcoming solo exhibition in Boston, August 2023.

Too far out? My work is currently showing @northern_illinois_university Art Museum, Dekalb, IL and @artpcgboston , Boston, MA.

New Year. New Thought.

“Thumping at the Skycap”

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

Whew, 2023. If you’re reading this, then you made it! We made it. Be proud🙏💕

Tonight I stayed home. I’m at an age, where I’m too old to go out clubbing & too young to be in bed before Midnight, so here I am.

Truth is, I’m excited about 2023! And yes, I’m going to be sharing my upcoming projects, my travel plans & I’m going to make work. I’m going to make lots of work. I’m going to sell work & make donations. Because that’s the right thing to do.

And I’m going to make it all look exceedingly easy, so little girls might see me & try, because after a pandemic, isn’t that the whole point?

Hello world 🌏❤️🙏

‘22 What a Year

Deuces! That’s what ‘22 was for me. As I quietly ease into this New Year, without fanfare or resolutions, but with gratitude.

This year, I was fortunate to connect with some amazing people! And no matter how we met— online, in-person or virtually, it was and is beautiful.

Thank you for sharing & touching my world with positivity, compassion and empathy. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE & YOU ARE APPRECIATED 💕

I’m so excited for 2023. Onward💯
