I’m on Cloud Nine from the 5×7 Art Splurge at the Arthouse!

Thursday night, my husband and I went to the Artists Preview party for the 2009 5x7 show at the Arthouse.  I was most surprised and thrilled to see that my two little paintings got a primo spot in the exhibition!  On the main wall, under the writing, top shelf.  They looked so good there!

“Working in Wax” Exhibit Opens May 3, 2009

Three of my encaustic paintings are showing in the "Working in Wax" exhibit at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek California.  The show runs from May 3 through June 21, 2009, with an opening reception on May 6 from 5:00—7:00 p.m., and a Culture + Cocktails Reception on June 18 from 6:00—8:00 p.m.

In our current cult of originality, the pressure is to have a personal style as soon as possible, and the classroom environments often have this mentality as well. Everyone is freaking out: “What’s my style? What’s my thing?” It’s too much too fast. This race for originality has, over the years, spread from that future-goal timeline to just after college to (now) inside college itself. A safety zone no longer exists.
