One of the new series won an award!

Yay!  Its wonderful when you try something new and then put it out there for everyone to see and they like it!  You never know… so its nice confirmation.  One of these new blind contour pieces won the Award of Excellence at the Art from the Heart show.   I named it "Interface II".  Its the one that I posted on February 7 (below).

Now we are packing up to go to Florida for awhile.  I've been getting the house ready for my house sitters and packing and planning the itinerary.  Ready for some warmer weather, the gypsy blood is stirring!

"Better a Creative Mess…"

"… than tidy idleness." (author unknown)

I've always loved the fact that this is how my mom felt while I was growing up.  We had many creative messes and you always learn something from them  (and it's fun).

So what better way to spend a cold grey sleety day than inside one's studio with bunches of colorful tissue paper torn up and glued onto canvas?  About the only way to top it is what Michael is doing:  baking bread and making French onion soup!   Eat well and create.  Good motto.

p.s.  I'm ready to head to Florida!
