Honor Land

I once again have donated a piece to the Missouri Coalition for the Environment fundraiser called 
eARThworks. I love the name of this fundraiser, such a clever play on words. 

My painting, Honor Land is inspired by the quote of John Muir, "When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world."

You can click on the link to find out more regarding all the amazing artwork that is part of this show plus details about you can attend and/or bid (you don't have to be in St. Louis) on a piece. 

I hope my painting raises a lot of money for the environment.

Return of the Delinquent Blogger

Geez, Louise, this has been my worst ever spell of non-blogging. I have had a lot of travel in these last 6 weeks - it is hard to remember what all I've done. But I want to check back in with all you blog peeps. I miss reading what everyone is up to....I am going to try to bring you up to date, little by little.

Early September - St. Louis Art Fair. 
This is my booth. 
You know, entering a big show like this (and getting in!) was probably slightly daft considering the aggressive teaching schedule I had during that exact time frame. I mean, really, what was I thinking???
But you know what? Things work out. 
Between teaching gigs I was able to paint like a mad woman, and also paint with a purpose of filling that booth. It allowed me to really let loose and p-l-a-y. Mainly because I didn't have a lot of time, but also because I used those precious painting hours to de-stress. It was really marvelous and reminded me that I need to paint for me too. Not just to develop class samples and to write articles, but also because I.NEED.TO.PAINT.
It was a good reminder.
