Welcome, Summer!

Ooops! 4 months and no contact, sorry folks! I've discovered Instagram, I've been hanging out there as 'snowdayartist'. And then there's been full-time teaching - yeah, a major time-eating profession, but so worth it!  I had great students this year! They made some amazing projects, and there were many humbling moments when I just stood back and let the students roll with their ideas. It's amazing how skillful elementary/middle school students can be - watching them can actually give you faith and hope for our collective future. I'm serious. They can solve problems and stay on an assignment until it's fully complete. My 2nd day of summer vacation and I miss them! Hopeless!

My new studio has a nice view of the dilly-bean garden. This garden is mostly about dilly bean production: garlic, beans, and dill. There's also spinach and beets, but it's mostly about the dilly beans... they keep the summer with us even in the middle of the winter. 
Several paintings are waiting for my attention. Summer is all about painting and gardening.

6th Snow-Day! Uploading Etsy Mittens

Snow-Day Artist

Today is Snow-Day #6 for this winter. I'm uploading mittens to my Etsy shop. The photography always takes longer than I wish it would. I need to create a photo booth.

Here is the first geranium to bloom in my new studio. A little funky, but GREAT color!

Double Snow-Day. Finally all moved in!

I am celebrating this double snow-day by moving the last of my art supplies into my new studio. All done. I'm in!

I love the new views and the deep window sills. These sills will become a rotating display of my 'loot'.

















The Cabin Fever Art Show at Longfellow's was fun. I was glad to have an upright display for my prints - much easier to see my artwork this way. I guess my 'booth' is an evolving process.

Niko prefers the driveway to being indoors while I vacuum! Seriously! Good thing I don't vacuum that often!

Here's my new painting corner.



















This is my 'fiber' area.














I am feeling very grateful for this new space.

Cabin Fever Art Show, Longfellow's Greenhouses

I am getting  my work ready for the Cabin Fever Art Show. This is an annual event at Longfellow's Greenhouses in Manchester. Saturday Feb. 4th 10 - 4, and Sunday Feb. 5th 10 - 3. This is a great show. I love being in the Longfellow's greenhouses with other area artists. If you are looking to see wonderful art, maybe buy a plant, have a cup of coffee, come on by!
