A gift from Grandma Lee who painted my kitty Prissy in 1983.

It’s been awhile since I’ve made a blog post. I feel bad that I fell off my 52card PU art. At this point in the year, I think I will just start planning to start again next year!

Coming up on October 19th, I’ll be the featured artist for Arts & Ales at Lefthand Brewing  from 6-8pm here in Longmont. I’ll have some of my pet portraits, greeting cards and other art available for purchase and I will be revealing my KITTY FACE 20×20 painting! Stop on by! I’d love to talk art with you while sipping a yummy beer from LeftHand!

I’ve been busy this summer working with the Longmont Artists’ Guild working at the Boulder County Fair where we were in charge of the art contest there, the Lyon’s Art on the River event at the end of August, Longmont ArtWalk in mid-September.

I’ve also been working with Lisa Larsen on our GYST (Get your S**T Together) workshops for creatives.  It’s been good for me to work on my own art business while coaching others to do the same! This project is in it’s infancy, but we both know it will grow and become something much bigger!  We’re looking for late 2018 early 2019. 

I’ve also been busy with my digital media business. I work for a real estate team doing their newsletter, website, social media and other marketing tasks.  I’ve been growing this business in the last month. Which is good, but leaves a little less time for art.

I’ve recently updated my “About Me” page which is a bio/artist statement about why I create. Check it out here! In case you didn’t already know, my mother and grandmother were oil painters too! Mom was more into landscapes and barns, while Grandma did landscapes, portraits, still life and animals! The picture above was a gift from her to me in 1983. It’s a portrait of my kitty Prissy.

Thanks to everyone for the tremendous support you give me. Because of you, I can create and that means everything to me.
