I am currently coordinating the first ever Fine Arts Area in the RI Home Show. I have been assigned 76 booths to fill with talented fine artists... I have also been Co-Chairing the Educational Committee for the Wickford Art Association... I also teach a Mixed Media Class on Fridays ... I have recently been invited to exhibit at Voila Gallery in Wickford, RI.... and I take an online class with Wyanne on commercial marketing... PLUS, I live in RI, we have recently had about 40 inches of snow from multiple snow storms, so that means ALOT OF SHOVELING!!!! YIKES! Where is there time to paint?!
Ahhhhh.... PAINTING! The real subject of this blog!
I feel I need to give a little background before I start this blog. I've always been an artist. As far back as Junior High School I can remember thinking "When I grow up, I want to be a Mom and an Artist!" Well, that is my blessed life today! I dabbled for years with all different mediums; clay, stone, and then finally paint. I started painting on canvas only about 7 years ago. I was painting so fast and furiously that the paintings started piling up. I was quickly running out of paint... So, I started selling my work to support my addiction, which is paint and all the lovely mediums that go along with them!
Painting for me is a necessity, it's how I keep my sanity!
This Blog is going to journal my paintings as they come to life. I will be telling the story behind each creation. I hope you enjoy reading this blog and learning about the paintings as they are created!
So, I guess that concludes today's blog! I hope everyone has a Fun and Creative Day! See you in the next blog!
