Moving into a new year and new adventures in art!
Art and Soul, a new members' art show at the Blue Morning Gallery will be highlighted with a members' reception on January 7th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. I'm looking forward to meeting new and old friends and a year of intensified painting and art production.
One of the highlights of the last month in 2010 was an art event for the children in our neighborhood, (with the assistance of my youngest grandson) many of whom are children of servicemen. Their finished art was amazing and we had a great time.
One of my goals for the coming year is to make a statement, "Paint the Wold with Hope and Healing." Much can be said for this statement - considering the wars, the degradation of our environment and current economic status around most of the world, and increasing violence within humanity. Paint the World's goal is to bring attention to beautiful Creation and ways to fulfill our passion to bring about Hope and Healing in the World.
I'm excited about the adventures and possibilities that will open as we walk down the road of Hope and Healing in 2011!
Wake up and Change your World - a message that is repeated to me over and over. I love to paint subjects from creation I believe art can be both a social, environmental, and spiritual statement for change.
