We haven't had much snow, so I decided to doodle some after watching this video tutorial by Kyle T. Webster!

On these cold days of winter, I pray you have a friend to keep you warm!

SUNDAY, November 13 - The Stable Gallery Opening Reception
Thanks to all my friends and family for your wonderful support and encouragement! I wish I had taken better pictures of the whole show, but here are a few of my pieces along with my good friend Carolyn and Evan. It was a ton of fun! I loved meeting new people, fellow artists, and talking about our art! I learned a lot for the next show and we all sold some pieces. Win-win-- Hallelujah!

TUESDAY, November 15 - Artist Reception at AtlantiCare Medical Arts Pavilion, Atlantic City, NJ
Fellow Springboarder Emily Gilman-Beezley and I headed to Atlantic City, NJ for an artists’ reception and ribbon-cutting ceremony of AtlantiCare's new Medical Arts Pavilion. Along with many other New Jersey artists, our work is featured on their office walls, corridors and spaces as part of AtlantiCare’s Healing Arts Program. What an honor! They treated us like royalty. It was great to meet the organizer, Cheryl Broschard, in person and get to know some of the other artists. I received incredible feedback on my work—totally worth the almost 6-hour round trip!
Here are a few of the new pieces I completed in time for the show (many still in progress). My new process includes embellishing traditional and archival digital paintings with collaging of paper, beads, and quilling.
We were, but happy! Here’s the Springboarders after setting up our show at The Stable Art Gallery this past Monday. Top L-to-R: Emily Gilman Beezley, Vicky Katzman, Liz Robles, Bottom L-to-R Jennifer Merz, me, Lydia Baldassarre (not pictured Dr. Joy Yoo).

In last year or so, one client acquired three of my digital paintings for his corporate office in Shelton, CT. With each piece, we discussed his color preferences, thoughts, and sizes. I then shared several design ideas with him, and he selected these! The goal was to come up with unique, yet harmonious and complimentary designs for his space. He opted for shiny metal prints, which have a modern, glossy, glass-like finish. I’m so happy to hear that he LOVES them and his clients and co-workers are stunned by the pop of color when they walk in his office! The selections he chose are below.

Please contact me to discuss if my artwork may be a good choice
for your corporate space, office, or home!
Thank you for landing on my blog! This a collection of photos, art, poems, and other creative stuff on my life journey. Sort of a visual diary.
