Finally a break through

 Red Balloons, Mixed Media, 8 x 10

 Little Fat Plane Flying Over the Mountains. Mixed Media, 8 x 10

The three pieces above are among the 9 chosen by Jeff Pace of Artsy Fartsy Gallery in a highly successful gallery in Carson City. He chose them for their playfulness and lively energy and figured they were the ones I am most excited about. I love to work like this. He was right. I'm on a run. The day before my little blue car (maybe that's the plane in the painting above) drove me to Yerington to the Dinni Art Center where I had a good ole chat with the director, Roy! Now I have secured a show for Feb next year, am on the volunteer list and was steered toward a place where i can take some art classes.Clay!

Soul Searching

Wee bit of soul searchin' going on for 'this little black duck'. I've found myself to be more than a smidgen lost in space . I've had to pull myself aside and have a good ole talkin' to. I've been tryin to be something I'm not, falling slave to my ego and thus have tumbled unceremoniously off my path. I'm a long way from figuring it.

Come sit beside me
I said to myself
although it doesn't make sense
I held my own hand as a small sign of trust
And together i sat on the fence.
