My life is currently focused on our furry four legged friends. I’m still painting some birds and a few cats but mostly I’m all about capturing the personality of some sweet puppies. I think they are the most loyal companions around and I’m so enjoying getting to know them more.
I have a couple animal events coming up. First it’s Furry Friends Fine Art Festival, a family art show centered around animals at Shemer Art Center, 5005 E Camelback, Saturday, September 17, 8am-4pm.
Then I have a couple one-day workshops on how to paint your pet at Scottsdale Artists’ School, 3730 N Marshall Way,Scottsdale, 480-990-1433. October 15 or December 15
“Adventure calls. Blaze a new trail. Cross a continent. Dare to discover. Escape the routine. Find a fresh perspective. Go slow. Gaze absentmindedly. Savor every moment. Have some fun! Invest now in future memories. Keep a journal. Leave prejudice and narrow mindedness behind. Make for the horizon and meet new people.Navigate the unknown. Observe, and open your mind. Pursue a road less traveled. Quest for truth. Rely on yourself. Sail away from the safe harbor. Take a risk. Unleash your curiosity. Venture further. Why wait? Expect the unexpected. Say Yes to adventure….journey with Zeal!

I always love this time right before the new year, a time to review what worked and what didn’t in the past year and make a fresh, clean start. Time to figure out classes to teach, retreats to lead, and workshops to take. Which competitions are worth entering, where would I really love to show? Where can I actually show? Who might wish to buy my art, who would love to host a paint party or have a team building event? How can I spend most of my time doing what I love(painting and inspiring others to create), make a living, and still have time for family? How can I best give back to my community while continuing to grow as an artist? Am I being the best human I can be?
What helps me and what hurts me? Who lifts me up and supports me, and who always lets me down? What do I need more of, less of? What is my number one goal, and what are the small steps I can take to make it happen? I’m sure many of you, like me, enjoy this sacred time of incredible possibilities.
We customize your program to fit your particular needs. You can each paint a pair of floral paintings with matching borders. There are so many possibilities! Reserve your date now as the calendar is beginning to fill up. click here for more infoHere are a few examples:
