Anyone In??

  WAY back in September I mentioned that I had registered for the most fabulous workshop.  It is coming up very soon and I can hardly contain my excitement!  Not only will I be learning techniques from some "rock stars", but also sitting in on some very helpful lectures regarding licensing and marketing.  Some of the instuctors include: Wendy Addison, Claudine Hellmuth, Matthew Meade, Kaari Meng, and more.  
  The workshop will be held in the historic Central West End in St. Louis, "a district created to house and entertain dignitaries of the 1904 World’s Fair. But don’t think the years have forgotten this unique area. It’s now the center of innovative restaurants, shops and stunning urban √©lan."   (My heart fluttered when I read that...) I may never want to leave!
  Now's the time to book, flights and room prices will not get cheaper, and accommodations are filling fast. 
  So, tell me... who's in??

Ode to Wonderland...

  I've been a little busy helping Miss Kelly with the opening of Second Saturday Studio.  Have you visited?  The "dress rehearsal" opening was a HUGE success thanks to some great word of mouth AND facebook... the greatest free marketing tool ever!  On top of all the busy-ness my laptop crashed.  I mean literally, as in crashed to the floor. (So, I've missed blogging but back in action now.) 
  I actually sold a few pieces at the opening so I finally got a little motivation to do that piece that's been rolling around in my head since "Ode to Oz" was completed.  (There's nothing like selling some artwork to light a fire under my rear, who needs a muse??) 
  I hope you will "take a tour" around the studio and peek in at some of the fantastic artwork that our members have created.  All the artists are from Arkansas.  Go on... check it out... Prepare to be inspired!!
Happy Happy Day full of blessings!
