Come On Down!!!!

The Name of my Show is............DIVERGENCE
1. The act,fact or amount of diverging:a divergence in opinion.

How does one stay focused when there is much to say.....Divergence is a show of branching out in many thoughts although few directions. Found,discarded,used up objects that once had a place in our lives are repurposed to hold,speak and talk a new story. Divergence takes the viewer on a journey through issues of racism,travel and spirituality.

Gallery Hours: Monday -Friday 9:00-4:00
Saturday & Sunday 1:00 -5:00

Thanx to Krystin Clark-Goodsell for the creation of the invite/postcard.........

This years Festival Of The Arts July 10-18 looks like a truly fun time check it out and think about coming on down for a concert or two.

See ya sooner rather than later

The Finish Line................

Morning All;
haven't forgotten ya....this is a quick one as the witching hour is upon me to cease all art in the next 48 hours YIKES!

Am i done yet??? lol lol nope but pretty darn close...pieces are being left behind as i speak cause no room or just not feeling that they belong in the show...My mornings start pretty darn early and into 12 hour days that is without set up of the a crew incoming on Wednesday night to help with set up ....Thank Goddess...

Can hardly find myself in my studio right now and the thing is last night creativity is spilling into the living space..whats a creative to do...between u and me i will be happy when the show is hung. my head and heart is all in which doesn't make me the best company to be around right now as i can't be present for any of u...

The last two weeks have been particularly stressful as i also continue with my residency duties, hmm lets see I've presented an art award, gone to a graduation,a dinner, however i am now done and will be able to take some time off..


I was accepted for another year of residency,as some of u know i reapplied and lo and behold here i be with a second year of residency!!! I will be taking some time off as i need it..

I am going to be a Nana!! Taylor and her husband TJ are expecting their first child in mid November...


Last Wednesday i let my 17 year old" familiar" my cat shadow go.....i knew that when we moved here almost a year ago that would be his last move...over the past few months he started to go downhill so made a very hard decision to say good bye to my fur friend...its left a big hole in my heart and space as he's been a big part of my life and we have journeyed about BC together..

I'm thinking i have bought u up to date.....oh and one more thing come on down to my opening of my show on Sunday July 4th 2010 @ 98 Rockwell Dr Harrison Hot Springs
2-4pm otherwise the show is on all of July...............

The Muse..................

Good Morning;
did ya miss me?? I am withdrawing more from the outside of my studio walls as my creativity is demanding all of my attention and energy which leaves little left over for any of u!!!

Its all about the Art!! its funny one never knows how u impact people and this is something i want to share.

I met Andy through the Gallery here and workshops that i was facilitating...she is a fab artist who uses only recycled goods in her work. Andy has been a great supporter of me for which i am very grateful for..ya know it does take a village to support an artist.

Andy surprised me when i was at her house working on yet another piece.. she did this piece called" My Muse Rhonda" I was so surprised and it left me speechless yeah yeah that doesn't happen often..its beautiful as to who i am which was another thing that was insightful from another's perspective..

well ya just never know as i am learning through this journey.....
