A Piece Of Me...

I was born in the second half of the 1900’s, possibly descended of "Scottish Tinkers" (still finding this), Tetched with Megalomania, Decidedly Hetro and an emerging Crone!

Winter, Blue, Spiritual, Empathic, Artist, Artisan, Wordist, Herbalist and a Stone Caster!

Now then, for good measure I’ll throw in ADD, Bi-Polar, OCD and a bit plain ole NUTZ….. J I refer to this as having numerous "Cats In My Attic", which means I still have control...otherwise they would just be "Bats In My Belfry"! : )

Most of my time, these days, is spent dealing with a semi-bizarre condition, "Arachnoiditis w/Myoclonic Dystonia"! Such is life after a fairly severe (ACDF C4-7) spinal incident. I am so grateful to no longer be paralyzed after successful surgery, that I try not to whine about the “Chump Change”! I’m sure any Quadriplegic out there would gladly accept the sacrifice for the freedom of Mobility!

Beautiful paintings And So Much More...

What a wonderful weekday stroll through a little art action this week! The weather was spectacular and the mood was fresh!

First 1up is this spectacular piece by a local artist, Gwen Knaebel. Wow! The colors here are so intense!

I promise, I am not really being biased here, seriously! I loved another one (two really) that was NOT abstract also,

see... I cannot decide which one is better! I feel them both! Kaydee Duckworth "Our Heros" as well as Diana Wright Troxell with "Horrifying Splendor" really capture my emotion with their use of color and context to draw you into their prespective!

So There!

Hopping Good Turnout For Gallery! So Great To See...

...so many new people coming through the galleries and just as nice to see old friends too! There was a steady stream of people that seemed to be having a great time. There were quite a few people that said they had never been to the gallery, so, that is really a boost for the artists right there, plus even probably a few new friends!  Now that's what I'm talking about! :0

I will be bringing the goodies for the next round, I hope everyone likes Mexican! LOL! I'll have to make a light salsa for the "heat meek"! LOL

New Show, Wow! I Am In Awe Of So Much Great Talent!

Well of course I would go all the way to the gallery and NOT remember my camera! AGAIN! AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!!

So I guess I will just have to make another trip down there now won't I? LOL!

I hear that Luke Lucas is having a workshop, check out his website for sign ups, information has it that he works wonders in his workshops! This is a watercolor artist that has a real "AWE"some talent, look through his gallery online and then make a point to stop by and visit him at "The Lassen Art Center", a wonderful "destination" drive!

From Luke's Gallery: Monterey / Fishermans Wharf

I love this one, I lived in Monterey for over 10 years and even lived 2 blocks from the warf for about 3 years! The colors here really grab me, it vibrates with life and excitement with just a hint of history and mystery!

Upcoming this weekend the 2nd Saturday Art Hop, I'll be there, I'll probably be bringing some snacks too! :)
