Birth Month

“Intense Energy”, 20×20″ oil on canvas, part of my 2018 Fall portfolio, release date October 25th

October is the month of my birth. Last year I started celebrating the entire month, because, why not?! This birthday is the turning of the calendar to the last year of my 40s!!!!! I’m not ashamed to share my age, I’m proud to be where I am now. There were times in my life where I didn’t think I would make it this far. Just a couple of days ago my husband and I lost yet another friend barely 50. It makes me sad to think of friends who will never be 50. I’ve lost quite a few over the years. It never gets easier. I’m going to do what I can to honor those lives lost by living the rest of my life to it’s absolute fullest! I’m going to proudly share my real age. Why not? I’ve learned so much in my 49 years. I wouldn’t change a thing, but I also wouldn’t want to relive most of it. I’m grateful for it all. It made me the person I am today.

“Feminine Energy”, 12×12″ oil on canvas, original SOLD! Prints will be part of 2018 Fall portfolio

Aaron and I took the day off on Monday, after hearing about the passing of our friend, and took the truck out 4 wheeling and then went on a hike. It hit us both pretty hard. Needless to say, I’m a bit behind on my work this week, but who cares! Life is more important sometimes.

Friday I am taking a couple of paintings to Silver City for the Silver City Art Association’s Indy Artist show. The show runs Oct 6th-8th. I wish I could say I will be there with my art, but I’m leaving on Saturday to go to Denver, CO for an Artist mastermind conference. I’m really excited about it! I’ve wanted to take a workshop with Alyson Stanfield for about a decade. I finally decided this was the year. No more putting things off for this or that reason. No more excuses!

“Balanced”, 12×12″ oil on canvas, part of my 2018 Fall portfolio, release date Oct. 25th

I’ve finished all 23 paintings I was working on! Hoping to have them up on the website by October 25th(my birthday). I am giving one of these paintings away to one of my email subscribers on the 25th! I still haven’t decided which one. To enter, go to MY WEBSITE, sign up on my email list when the box pops up, and wait for the email announcing the winner! It’s that easy.

I will be out of the studio all next week, so I most likely won’t post a blog. I will be back to the blog the week of the 15th. Stay tuned!

Quick Post

…..To let everyone know I’m still alive, just SUPER busy!

Tomorrow is my Open Studio with my husband’s House Concert, Sunday and Monday I’ll be at an Arts & Crafts Show here in town, and next week we are looking for an (outside the house) office/studio space that my husband and I can share.

This has been a super busy week for personal reasons too, my youngest son graduated from Middle School yesterday! Where did the time go? My baby will be in high school in August! Plus this was my husband’s last week as a public school music teacher.

Also, this evening, my brother and his band will be in Albuquerque to play a gig and they always crash at our house when they are here.

Hopefully, next week I will get a chance to breathe for a minute or two before we start getting ready for our Denver trip. We leave on the 7th of June. I hope to meet a couple of my blog friends while I’m there (Cynthia and Mary?).

AND I can’t wait to see The Police concert on the 9th!!!! 🙂

The 10th is our 10th wedding anniversary, so we will spend the day up north of Fort Collins at Lake Watson. We were married there in an outdoor ceremony. For anyone that didn’t know, we lived in Colorado for four years while we attended college.

I apologize for the gap between postings, I will try to keep up with the blog to let everyone know what’s up!
