New Podcast Is Up!

This week's interview is with Belinda Spiwak. Be sure to listen as she talks about balancing creativity with a busy lifestyle.

I forgot to announce last week's interview -- it was with Canadian artist and workshop leader, Andrea Schroeder. She had some interesting things to say about creativity and spirituality.

Humbling Expereince

Today, I saw my two pieces on the wall in the Redlands Art Association's Multi-Media Mini Show. It is a juried show. Out of almost 350 entries, about 100 pieces were selected to be a part of this exhibition. When I saw my work hanging with so many fabulous works of art, I was actually choked up. It was an amazing moment -- seeing my art on the wall, receiving the congratulations of my friends and fellow artists.

I just want to say "thank you" to everyone who has encouraged me and supported me on my artistic journey. I still have a long way to go, but I'm so pleased with the growth I've experienced over the past year. And it wouldn't have been possible without my friends and supporters. Thanks so very much!

Mini-Show News!

I just got my mail a few minutes ago, when my husband got home from work. In it, were the results of the Mini-Show Juror Day. I'm pleased to announced that TWO of my pieces made it into the show -- Emerge and New Eyes.

If you live in the Redlands area, please stop by the Redlands Art Association sometime after Friday to see my work on display. The exhibit runs through April 8. The RAA Gallery is located at 215 East State Street, downtown. The phone number is 909-792-8435. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 10am to 5pm.

Mini-Show Submissions

I've been busy getting ready for the Redlands Art Association's 41st Annual Multi Media Mini Show. Take-in is tomorrow. I'll be going in the afternoon, dropping off my work, having lunch with a friend and then gaming and dinner with another friend. It should be a good day.

This show is a juried show, and the judge is a photographer, so I have no idea what kind of art she'll like. Some artists really like mixed-media collage, and some just don't get it. No telling which way she'll lean. And then, there's always the possibility that she'll like mixed-media work, but she won't like mine! Whatever! Art is so subjective; there's no way to predict what piece of work is going to resonate with another person. After all, there's plenty of "good art" that I don't particularly care for!

We are allowed to enter up to three pieces in the show. I'm going for all three to maximize my chances. Wish me luck!

These last two pictures are a little dark because I took them at 11:15 at night in lousy lighting, but I think you get the concept.
