Trail Markers

Sometimes as I navigate this crazy art calling, I feel like I’m hiking an obscure path, and I’m not sure if I’ve gone off the trail. I am taking it one step at a time, watching for the right signs and opportunities, but if I haven’t seen a trail marker in a while, I start to get that nervous flutter that perhaps I’ve totally blown it and gotten myself lost.

Today, I feel like I was given a ‘YOU’RE ON THE RIGHT TRACK! KEEP GOING!’ message. I found out that I won 2nd place in the Westward Unbound show at the Center for the Arts Evergreen for my painting, ‘Last Days of Summer’. I am so humbled and honored to have won this award, and it makes me take a tremendous inhale of relief that I haven’t gone off trail. I’m right where I’m supposed to be.

ASLD Summer Art Market 2015 with my Mamela.


Thanks SO MUCH to everyone who came out to the ASLD Summer Art Market this weekend! It was so much fun to see friends out there, and I feel full of joy and art from looking at so many amazing creations all weekend. It was exciting and fulfilling to show some of the new pieces I’ve been working on, and I appreciated all of the support and encouragement. My heartfelt thanks to each of you who stopped by!

It was a glorious, dry weekend. Perfect summer weather was a tremendous treat!

Now, time to get back to the easel and press.
