Water, Source of Life

Hey, Next time I need one or more of the Sisters Seven to make me laugh when having a photo taken.. Ralph is taking the photo, and I can see my thoughts as, "just push the button, honey"! It was a beautiful show.. nice crowd and enjoyable evening.. It is still hanging at Stellar Gallery in Oakhurst. The variety of art is amazing.. Stop by if you have a chance. Oh, forgot to tell which are my pieces,,,, the skull head, "35 Cows" and the Mixed Media Art Quilt, "Fish and Game", this was a juried show.

Where do the Weeks GO?

I'm not sure where the summer and now the fall have disappeared to. I thought when I retired four years ago, time would "slow down" and things would happen in slow motion. But such is NOT the case. I am busier than ever, but it is by choice. I sometimes feel like shrieking "Stop the world--I wanna get OFF! But just for a bit, until I catch my breath." It's a whole different feeling, doing what you want to do instead of what you have to do.
One of the ways we can "cultivate" collectors--send them "snail" mail!

Sisters 7 came together as a "salon marketing group" formed around a study of Alyson Stanfield's book, "I'd Rather Be In the Studio". We studied, conversed, practiced, changed our ways, and became friends in the process. I learned so much from the first course that I've gone on to take 2 online courses from Alyson. The first was called "Cultivate Collectors" and the one I'm taking now is called "Getting Organized" and that's what I am currently working on. It's all about making my office area more useful, efficient, and productive as well as establishing a process for task management. Check out her website and her blog if such a thing interests you. And keep on keepin' on, making art and enjoying life.

You Missed it !

Great fun, lots of chatter, painting, creating and friendship. A house full of ladies, but as you can see I took the photos when no one was looking.
Kathleen has a natural wooded yard, full of areas for excellent photos, and Fri. I took full advantage of it..
Where was everyone??? Eating a delicious lunch.. The studio is so inspiring, as is the rest of the house, you will have to check my blog to see more photos.. Amazing day... Thank you Kathleen!!!!
