March News

March has been a wonderful month! It started with being chosen as Artist of the Month in the New Braunfels Art Gallery, http://newbraunfelsartleague.com. A very special "thank you" to those who came to my reception. It means more to me than I could ever express.
Yesterday I received a call informing me that I have been accepted into Galleria II, which is an art gallery located in La Villita, San Antonio's Historic Arts Village, http://www.lavillita.com. I will begin exhibiting on March 31. Drop in on Friday, April 3, and say hello!
March also marks my birthday. Gene, my brother-in-law, sent the greatest card! It says, "You're not getting older....You're just beginning to bloom"! And that's exactly how it feels, too!
Happy, Happy Spring Everyone!

La Villita #1

Another painting from a photo taken long ago. The dappled sunlight added to the charm. I attempted to capture it so I could share it with you. Do come visit La Villita. It's a San Antonio gem that shouldn't be missed!

The Yellow Planter

This is from a photo I took a few years ago at the Antique Rose Emporium here in San Antonio. They have a deep blue outdoor "room" lined with colorful plants. This one really caught my eye with the yellow planter against the blue wall.

Riverwalk with Arneson

Time is flying by and I have not been painting as much as I would like. I have managed two this week, thank goodness! I was starting to noodle on this one too much and decided it was time to quit. I am calling it finished but may revisit it in a day or two. Paintings often look different with a little resting of the eyes.

Artist of the Month

I received a very wonderful phone call informing me that I was chosen Artist of the Month for March 2009 by the New Braunfels Art League, www.newsbraunfelsartleague.com. I spent much of Saturday setting up my display and visiting with the artists who were manning the gallery. There is nothing like being in the company of artists! My work will be featured throughout March.
Please come see the March Special Show entitled "Art in Bloom". Art by over 40 area artists will be on display from March 2-31, 2009. The Artist Reception and Awards Presentation will be held Friday, March 6 from 5 p.m to 8 p.m. at the New Braunfels Art League, 239 W. San Antonio Street in New Braunfels, Texas. Spring has sprung at the New Braunfels Art League!
Hope to see you there!!!
