stories from my art opening!

i had the most wonderful opening for my Absolutely Art show! and one of the moments that made it so sweet was meeting this outstanding group of young ladies (young artists, i believe), all dressed in their snow suits, and asking me a ton of questions about my paintings and saying which ones were their favorites.

i was so inspired by their fashion-polka dots, bold colors and fabulous red sneakers! on their way out, one girl near-pressed her nose to my white owl, SHE STANDS OUT, and didn’t step away until her mom called her to go!

then, i had the pleasure to get an email from her, sent later that night, asking if i could make it to her 10th birthday party to teach her and friends how to paint owls!

i can’t even tell you what that means to me! i mean, talk about the little, incredible, beautiful, small moments that really make me smile, knowing i am exactly where i need to be and remembering what’s really most important!

i’ve been thinking a lot about adapting my HOW TO PAINT AN OWL workshop for children, and that’s exactly what i was thinking about when i saw those girls checking out my paintings at the opening.

i said to myself, how can i make that happen? where would i go with it? well, i’m pretty sure things will fall right into place with it all! 

thank you so much to Absolutely Art for putting on such an incredible opening and show!

and THANK YOU to everyone who turned out for the opening!
and to all of you for your kind wishes and incredible support! 
i wish you all could have been there!!!

and i’m so happy you’re here, sharing this little gallery and story space with me!


ps. i’ve got some really fabulous news to share with you on wednesday! perhaps you’ve seen the artwork of the wonderful flora bowley? well, then you can imagine just how excited i am!
