1995 Barnacles

still life, acrylic, 6" x 6" $100 click here to purchase 
The birds may have changed (the Hooded Mergansers arrived yesterday) and the outfit has transitioned form quick drying skirt (got to keep those upper legs tanned) to two pairs of pants, wools socks, three jackets (my own version of LL Bean's 3 in 1) and sneakers - do not ask - but by golly it's almost mid-November and guessed who kayaked today?! I thought that you might like to know a little more about my kayaking partner - you can read about her here, in her blog post,

1992 First Friday

sold still life, acrylic, 6" x 6"  scooted into Boston tonight for the First Friday event. The galleries feature openings, while the artist's open their studios in SoWa for the evening.  First we stopped at Myers and Chang for dinner and then on to the galleries - some of tonight's highlights were the Miller Yezerski Gallery, showing Emily Eveleth's work and Gallery Kayafas where A. B. Miner is showing - coincidentally A. B. Miner is also the Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

1988 The Third Coast

Other News: I'm just settling in from my weekend on the 'third coast,' Nashville. Between catching up on missed belly rubs with my fluffy friend, Brie, I want to send out some of my initial enthusiasm over this new found city. Having never been, I was first impressed with my flight down, in that one out of every two folks on the airplane carried-on a guitar (such talent!).  I stayed in a cosmopolitan yet residential district called 12 South - where the streets are lined with historic bungalows and Victorians (together at last). I walked by Dolly Parton's recording studio every morning on my way to retrieve coffee. Coincidentally, the front of her studio is also the site of a temporary, "Before I Die,"  wall (one of my favorite public art projects) by contemporary artist Candy Chang. The main street also has all the area's best restaurants and shops. Rumor has it Gwyneth Paltrow shops at the custom made jean shop - Imogene and Willie. Housed in an old gas station, the jeans are customized to fit - they start at $300, so, I bought two - totally kidding - I bought three - I kill myself, seriously, I'm going to stick to shrinking my department store jeans in the dryer in hopes of that custom look. My workshop at Warehouse 521 was full (17 participants) and I couldn't be more thrilled with the facility and my delightful host, Jeanie (that's her when you click on the 521 link) and everyone who took the class. The studio is in an old piano warehouse and fit right in with the overall creative vibe in Nashville. I will post more photos of the workshop soon. Everyone was friendly and hospitable - I also got to visit the Kandinsky exhibit (thank you again, Holly) at the Frist  and was merrily aired out before my flight this morning with  a hike at Radnor Lake (thank you, Kim and Jeanie). It's been awhile since I've visited someplace brand new and I look forward to spending more time in Nashville.
