Spring Garden Art Show Reception

I'm so delighted to be sharing my work with the Spring Garden community in the school store.  I will be there for a reception on Friday morning, October 28, from 8:15 until the assembly begins at 9:00.  I will also be there to greet guests after the assembly for a few minutes (10:00ish - 10:30).

Stop in.  Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea from the school store.  Enjoy art.  Enjoy complimentary light refreshments.  Chat with me about art or life or whatever is on your mind.

The show is titled Boats and Blooms, and all of the work has been inspired by the natural beauty around me.  Here are some of the pieces on display:

I'm also pleased to offer some of the original watercolors from my Summer of Inspiration Series.  These simple watercolors include and inspiring quote that will motivate and inspire us to live our best lives.  These are super affordable at $20.  They also make lovely gifts.

Art Show in Spring Garden School Store

I am delighted to announce a new show of some of my recent work!

Boats and Blooms

Acrylic paintings and more inspired by the beauty of the natural world.  

Opening Reception:  Friday, October 28, 2016, beginning at 8:15 a.m. until the assembly and continuing after the assembly for a bit.  

Show continues when the store is open through November 23, 2016

I always seeks the creative intersection of inspiration and intuition.

Spring Garden is located at 1791 S. Jacoby Rd., Copley OH
If you're not familiar it is my son's school.  About once a month they have an assembly in which each grade shares something related to what they are learning.  Parents and friends are welcome to attend, and they are often hanging around from 8:15 to 9:00 a.m.  That is the reason for the unique time!

If you would like more information or you would like to host a show of my work, EMAIL ME!
