Weekend Immersed in Art

April 14th, 2014

My weekend of Art & Culture began with the Artist Reception on Thursday April 10th, 2014 for Art Outside the Walls: en Plein Air, the exhibit at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach that showcases the artwork of the group I co-founded, Plein Air Palm B...

My husband, John and I were at the opening of the Artist as Author: An exhibition of artists in various creative disciplines who are authors and it was splendid. It is presented by Cultural Council of Palm Beach County at the Councils headquarters... 

Getting back to painting more regularly has been good: good for me and good for my work. Painting is a lot like dance. The muscles don't forget, but to be good requires constant practice. One of the directions I have been exploring is a mixe... 

So it's the New Year, and I restarting my blogging. I've felt a bit guilty about neglecting it but life has a bad habit of getting in the way of the best intentions. I'll admit that being President of Palm Beach Watercolor Society the last two ha...
