Creative Living Workshops

I am thrilled to be in McKinney, Texas and to find great people interested in and enthusiastic about helping me make Creative Living Workshops available here.  (I must also say I am so very grateful for the warmth and sunshine!).

Joanne Osborne of YogaUnity in downtown McKinney has generously opened one of the rooms in her Yoga Studio for (at least) two sessions this summer.  The studio is at 104 1/2 N. Tennessee, directly across from the McKinney Performing Arts Center.  The sessions are:

Tuesdays - July 6 - Sept 21 from 12:30 - 2:00
Sundays - Aug 1 - Oct 17 from 2:00 - 3:30

I fully expect each session to fill to over-flowing, so stay tuned (or contact me if you want to be notified) for additional sessions to be scheduled.

These workshops will be based on Julia Cameron's book, The Artist's Way, as the primary text.  The cost is $300 ($25/week for 12 weeks).

It is my intention to host 4 workshops a week as I get "out there" and get to know people, I am confident more workshops will be in the making - and soon.  I am not sitting still any longer than meditation and Morning Pages require so expect to see much more from me - and SOON.

Want to know more?  Send me a note and I will send you the brochure.  If you'd like to talk to me, indicate that (and send your phone number) in your note.

July 6 ... just 3 weeks from today.  See you there!

NAME YOUR PRICE (Inventory Reduction Sale)

Autumn always brings a strong sense of change to me. Perhaps it is because the change in the Northwest is drastic and sudden. Spring rolls in slowly and easily but it always seems that I go to sleep one warm summer night and awaken the next morning to Autumn. I love the colors and smells, and the sense of change. Inevitably, I get in to the mood to reorganize and "change" things in my home and studio. This is my time of the year to consider how well the summer art show season went, and to consider inventory reduction.

My summer was great. I exceeded sales goals, and in fact, exceed all my expectations. As a result, my inventory reduction sale can be as dramatic as the autumn colors!

Browse through the paintings below, and contact me if there is something you like. Any reasonable offer will be accepted. What does "reasonable" mean? If your offer covers my cost, you win. If not, I will let you know what my lowest possible price can be.

The blog title indicates how far in the alphabet I've progressed as I add more and more paintings to the offer. And, I've included the painting title, size, and current price so that you have a starting place as you think about making an offer.

Don't forget shipping. Assume $25 for shipping. If it is more, I'll toss in the overage!

Enjoy! And remember, Live In Full Color!
