New  Beginnings!

So, one of my mentors Flora Bowley ( , challenged herself to write a blog everyday for 30 days. I decided to follow her lead and challenge myself to do the same thing. I’m not sure how interesting this is going to be, but I guess we are about to find out!

I just finished Coordinating the Fine Arts area of the RIBA Home Show. Although this is loads of fun, and I get to meet some amazing artists...This takes me about three months to prepare, getting all my artists in place, getting contracts signed and making sure everyone is prepared. Then, it’s six 12 hour days setting up and exhibiting the show. … Needless to say this takes me completely out of the studio for an entire month!

   I’ve decided that this will be my last year coordinating this event because I really would rather be painting! Also, while the galleries are selling my work, I am not producing new work during this time. So it is no longer possible for me to be both Coordinator AND Artist... So, I decided that I would think of today as NEW BEGINNINGS! Naturally what follows this idea must be a clean and organized studio! RIGHT!

I did get a chance to splash a little paint around… but I am so filled with joy to begin painting tomorrow! So, until then, I took some images of paintings I was painting a month ago… Hello old friends! Are you ready to finish our journey together!

To all my artists friends out there reading my blog, THANKS for taking the time to read this! Let me know if you begin the same 30 day Blog Challenge!

Happy Creating!
