October Newsletter – What is new?

Happy Fall Everyone: with fall and the good weather, art markets are popping up everywhere!! I love going to art markets and buying art…. yes I buy other artist’s art and I love the collection  on my walls. I remember my first art market in Algiers Point sponsored by Artina. I was so excited when I made a sale… then to a good friend. As I participated in more art markets especially in the By Water area, I started selling to other people – not friends and relatives- and that felt so good.  I will be participating in Palmer Park art market this coming November the weekend after Thanksgiving. I hope you can come see me and other artists… it is really a treat!! I will be in the New Orleans Art Association tent.

I will also be participating in an Art exhibit by the West bank Art Guild at St. Phillips Episcopal Church in Algiers from Nov. 7th thru the 15th. On the 7th from noon to 4 p.m. there will be a reception to meet all 29 artists. It should be a very good time: wine and good food.

On Nov. 21st from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m I will be at Aunt Sally’s on Decatur. I will be signing prints and doing demos of how I do my watercolors. If you are in the French Quarter come on by and see me.

Remember I have Christmas cards available. Check out the tab under Christmas paintings in my website for a  look. This year I have a little girl- very much like my grand daughter – hanging a Fleur de Lis ornament on a tree – you can see that thru a New Orleans style type window.

House Portraits commissions are keeping me busy as well . Put in your order if you want one for this Christmas.

Lastly, I was fortunate to be able to go to France this past September for a wonderful vacation. I will be sharing some of my Paris  and Provence paintings in the near future.

Thanks for checking my website and for your support.
