ART,ART and more ART

As John Lennon said,
 "Life is what happens to you when you're busy making other plans"

So, life made other plans for me while I was busy making plans for my art party!  I am postponing my art party ART, Chocolate Cake and Wine party  that was scheduled for this October 4th, to sometime in the near future.  Although, I am very disappointed, I need to take a step back and do some self care.  As many of you know, and as I explained in an earlier blog post, this has been a very rough year for me.  Grieving has no time limits, it takes what it takes. I am going to focus on some healing for the present moment.  I will be painting!!! But, no art party until the timing is right.

Summer is fading and Fall is fast approaching.
 I will be out in the world more, showing support for my fellow artists this month.  There is lots going on for September here in Sacramento. I will be checking out The Art Bra show at the Blue line arts gallery  in Roseville, it's a great cause and looks like a fun show. The Blue Line arts gallery is also showing the Politically Charged Exhibit.  Politics and art, always make for a good controversial showing. As who is imitating who. ( or is it whom?) The artist's Open Studios are this month also. A large number of Sacramento area artists are opening their art studios to the public for the next upcoming 2 weekends, You can find the catalogs at your local art supply stores, Dick Blick on Howe Avenue and University Arts on J Street or you can go the Open Studios website to find out more info, I let time get away from me, so I did not enter either one of these, but I am really looking forward to seeing all the great art and getting sneak peeks at the artist's studios.  ( My 'studio' is my kitchen, dining area, so I have some studio envy here). In my walking this week, I finally made it in to the Red Dot gallery in midtown on J Street. Sweet space, small, but efficient and love the gallery owners, good energy.  If you have a chance stop and take a look this month, when you are out doing the second Saturday arts walk. I personally like to go the galleries on weekdays, so I can get close and personal with the art. Enjoy

I will be posting my new art as I paint.  And I will report back on what I see out and about, on my art adventure this month.  Peace
