Delivering more than 100 paintings for a solo exhibit can be a daunting task. When surrounded by amazing friends and artists, that daunting task can be a surprisingly enjoyable experience. Such was the case last weekend in Cambridge, Maryland. Janette hung the show magnificently, filling the entire first floor of Dorchester Center for the Arts. Joyce put together an amazing window display. Ann, Bob, Lisa, Elissa and Deb were there to provide physical, moral and emotional support. Thank you! Collaboration and support among artists makes a world of difference. We create our art in bubbles. When we can share it so joyfully with the world outside of our bubbles, it is an honor and a gift. a celebration of human relationships.
To calm my anxiety, I created Dala Art at the Ritz home, delighting in one of the most bizarre birdhouses I’ve ever seen.
One of the discussion threads that wove through conversations was whether the initial seed of inspiration is two-dimensional or three-dimensional. The seeds that sprout in my case are three-dimensional. Most often, they bear fruit in a two-dimensional media … something for me to ponder during my evening walks.
