You're Invited!

You are warmly invited to attend the opening of Across the Universe at the Art League of Daytona Beach on March 7, 2010. On March 27, 2010, artist/sculptor/art historian, Louise Lieber, will moderate a gallery talk and panel discussion with the three artists. The events are free and open to all. Light refreshments will be served.

Also, on Monday, March 29th and Tuesday, March 30th, Fran and I will be painting and creating at the studios of the ALDB. Anyone is welcome to stop in between 10 a.m.-12noon and 1:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m. those days to see what we're creating and for a private tour of the exhibit with the artists.

An Incredible Workshop

I and several of my friends, including my dear colleague Fran Gardner, attended a week long workshop with our gifted art coach, Steve Aimone, at the Atlantic Center for the Arts this past week. It concluded yesterday afternoon. All of us experienced a productive week and explored the parameters of our art-making. In this nurturing, honest and intense workshop, we produced some incredible art.
I decided to try out automatic drawing as a springboard for non-objective abstracting and as a tool for trouble-shooting work in progress. The results were quite rewarding for me. Steve shared other, useful tools for starting and completing abstract work.

After my first good night's sleep in a week, I'm ready for another coaching session!
