A little holiday mind chatter…
I must say that I have mixed feelings about this time of year. Although it is a perfect time to review blessings, spend time with loved ones, and practice giving; I am often left so frazzled by January that I realize I have overlooked the specialness of the season. The piece pictured above is called “Mind Chatter” which is about times when our minds take over and we become consumed with the never ending to-do list. This painting reminds me to focus on the moment, appreciate those around me and enjoy life.
The month of December is filled with many events (of course!). I would like to share some of them with you and ask that you consider supporting local artisans while shopping for holiday gifts. Your support means that we are able to continue to do the things that we love.

I am very grateful as this year closes for the opportunity to share my art with so many people. I have been surprised by old friends at openings and been able to see so many of you. It really has been a tremendous year and I thank you for your kind words and support. May you all have a peaceful holiday with minimal mind chatter!
