It has been a while since I posted and as the year is coming to a close, I am thoughtful on what has happened in the past year. Early this year I decided not to continue teaching classes through my studio and to focus on my art.
I also joined the Stonetown Arts art group in St. Marys. I have also accepted a position of Gallery Assistant at the St. Marys Station Gallery. I have redesigned their website, maintaining their social marketing and help the curator, Cameron Porteous in assisting in the promotion of the gallery.
I was on a board of a non profit for over 12 years where I designed and maintained all their web and print needs. As I was nearing the end of my tenure, others took over my duties there. For the last 5 years, I have been looking for something to be a part of and to utilize my wide skill set and found a very exciting connection with Stonetown Arts and the St. Marys Station Gallery.
Next year shows promise of a sharper focus on my art. I have a 5 week show at the Station Gallery this January with my friend and fellow artist, Deb Dicker.
I am looking forward next year after the show to play with my fluid acrylic art. There is another Paint Battle in London next March that I hope to be part of again.
Next fall I have chances of selling my art with in September being at the Thorndale Fair, and later that fall at the Stonetown Arts Show and Sale and the Thorndale and Area Artisan Tour in Nov. for those looking for Christmas gifts.
It has been a while but I feel content that I have been making choices that follow my heart and are leading me to path that balances my personal life and my art.
As the concept goes, if you write it down, it will have a greater chance of happening so that is the impetus of this post.
I wish everyone a safe and warmth filled holiday season and all the best in 2019.
This blog is to showcase my ongoing work.
