Forth Magazine - Around Town | Montrose Art Walk and The Happening Gallery Fine Art Show

~ g r a t i t u d e    p o s t  ~

So, every once in a while, we fall off the planet of "blogging". 

It seems so trite to say "I have been so busy with... and... and...." 
 ...but in this world of social networking, branding, & internet marketing- 
I am finding that sentence coming out of my mouth more often than...
"because I'm your mother and I said so!!" 
(which I swore I would never say!!!)
 It's amazing to me that so much time can be taken up with planning, 
with lists, and the business part of "a r t ",  in a way that 
I never experienced in all my years as a graphic designer. 
I am reminded every minute that I sit at this computer 
(rather than the easel, or the counter with my decoupage) 
of how the   w o r l d   i s   c h a n g i n g.
I am loving and hating this change all at once.

I've been noticing the seeds starting to grow~ 

with the sale of my "first" mixed-media painting 
at Ventura ArtWalk
and this lovely mention from Forth Magazine at the Montrose Art Walk.

I've been anxious and wondering if all the "technical time" will  yield something good and
