more poppies

Finished painting these poppies a few days ago and now they are winging their way to England - may their new owners enjoy them for many years... it's a big painting over 30x30 but very cool. At least I think - hope the new owners agree!

Night at the Galleries

I'll be joining the "Night at the Galleries" exhibit at the Del Webb Clubhouse at Lake Oconee this Saturday.... if you live there, do stop by and say hello! They held the first one last year and it was an enjoyable evening -

I'll have some variations of poppies, a couple of Women of Courage and other paintings to show.

Art in the Pass

I will be showing again at the delightful art show, "Art in the Pass" in Pass Christian, MS the weekend of April 2 & 3. This show has a spectacular setting right on the Gulf of Mexico and the folks running it are a delight. If you are anywhere in the vicinity then, do make an effort to visit. Pass Christian is approximately an hour E of New Orleans. I'll post detailed information and directions nearer the time.
The photo is the view from my tent in 2010. I first did Art in the Pass back in in 2004, and apart from the gnats who devour me, I love the show - and it gives me a

chance to see my New Orleans artist friends again - always a treat!

my latest article up on travel ezine

Here's another art form I love - writing. I've been lucky to work with wonderful and patient editors, both newspaper and magazines, over the years who have taught me so much. I write, and usually do the photos for my articles, for a travel ezine AmericanRoads, published by Kathleen Wells - a prolific writer and a great supporter of writers and artists. I contribute the Art Trails, it's published quarterly. You can go back in the archives to read older editions (about 3-4 years worth of my meanders) if you feel so inclined. This one celebrates the art of quilts.
So, the first one for 2011 - you'll have to copy and paste the link in to your browser. For the life of me, I can't get this blog to accept my links! I guess I'll work it out one day
