Colors of Green

Tomorrow is the opening of an art show I'm sharing with Robin Miller at Kaewyn Gallery in Bothell, WA. It's a wonderful gallery and I hope you can stop by for a visit between 5pm and 8pm. We would love to see you there. This art show reminds me that sometimes we get out of our comfort zone and feel unsure of ourselves. As artists and just in daily life we don't play enough, experiment or explore. We are way too serious, afraid of making a mistake or not sure if anyone will like what we're doing. Well. if you don't make mistakes, you will  never grow. If you don't grow you become bored and boring. We can't let that happen folks so, draw, paint, knit, cartwheel, anything. Just get out of the box and enjoy life in whatever venue you take. What are you waiting for? Go!  Oh yes, come back and let me know you you feel ok?

Alone together is ok.

A few years ago, I spent time with friends painting in El Dorado National Forest. Actually, I was painting, they cooked, hiked and panned for gold. The tourists were gone and just a few families shared the area. It was quiet and peaceful and we each had that special time alone with our thoughts and just relaxed. When we were together for meals, we shared our day. The group decided being alone while also being together was a very  special. Neat way to spend a week eh? Would you enjoy this kind of vacation? Let me know...I'll be here waiting to hear from you.
