another show!

I am happy to say that I am in another group show! This one is at the Community Wellness Center in Farmingdale, ME...and once again, I need to thank my website designer, Erika (of Tenacious Designs). She forwarded a link to my site ( along to Lia Angelini (the owner of the Community Wellness Center); Lia liked my work and asked me to take part in their latest show, entitled "Beloved". I really like the idea of having my paintings displayed in a place that's all about good energy. The opening is this Friday (June 26th) from 6 pm to 8 pm, and the show runs for about 3 months...that's good because I just found out about it the other day. Once again, better late than never!

better late than never

Okay, so it's been a while...a long while. Stuff has been happening, I just haven't gotten around to blogging about it. That all changes now! Thank you to Erika Hoxie, my website designer, for giving me a much-needed kick in the pants (figuratively, of course). I will try my best to be more disciplined about keeping up with blogging. I may not be on here every day, but a few times a month would be a major improvement.

Right now, I am in a show at Freeport Square in Freeport, ME. It is a group show for members of Freeport Creative Arts (which I just joined), juried by Bruce Brown. I am really excited to be a part of this show, and equally bummed that I was out of town for the opening reception...something I have never done before. This was a last-minute show for me and the plans to visit with family out of state had already been made, so something had to give. At any rate, I want to thank Kathleen and Sebastian at Freeport Square for encouraging me to join FCA and therefore be eligible to take part in this wonderful group show. The gallery is absolutely beautiful: large windows, great light, and a wide open floor plan. Plus, it's right down the street from LL Bean, so you can't beat the location. This is my second group show at Freeport Square, the first being a UMVA (Union of Maine Visual Artists) group show that opened on Memorial Day weekend. That show was excellent as well--very diverse work by over 20 artists. I am hoping that I will have opportunities in the future to show there again. Fingers crossed!
