Now Showing In Chichester NH

I dropped of two watercolors matted and ready for hanging at the Wild Women’s Wellness Center in Chichester NH where the art of many hope to raise funds much needed for the animals of all sizes and shapes up the road called Live and Let Live Farm.

They give homes to animals with life to live but no home to live at.  They need food and care never mind love.  They open the farm up on Sundays at 2:30 PM for tours to see all the animals if you are in the area vacationing or if we have too much snow on our slopes 🙂 take a spin and a walk around the place.

So the particulars on the Artist Reception are go to RTE 4 and pop into the lower level of the brick building where Wild Woman Wellness is. Plenty of parking  around back as well.  We will be there from 5-7 PM  Saturday there will also be raffles, food laughter and fun as they hope to sell all the art to bring in money for the farm.  I have donated these two watercolors and am donating 100% of my personal sales.

Both of mine are framed and ready to hang as are the beautiful works of art that have also been hung up for the show.  There may be bins with cards or prints I left before it was set up but will be there Friday night but I teach a class on Sat. so I will have to miss that and then run up to get them if they do not sell.

I have been so busy

It has been awhile since writing a post here.  I miss everyone.

It is spring so it was all about the Pansies 🙂  We sold 160 this tiny little group of ours.

The town and two businesses look so pretty.

I have not painted much as I have my first solo art show coming up.  I will hang my Watercolors in my town library here in NH.  So I have been busy trying to decide what will make the cut and what I should frame and what I will attach to a wire.  Art that is affordable will be on display.  Maybe the name of show should be “Hung Out to Dry”
🙂 it is wet media after all.

Here is one that will not be included as I was commissioned to paint it.

Life is good but different finding myself listening to my mom’s one phone message I kept and missing her.

Here is where I go no matter the weather to find peace.

I will be adding a Punch of Color

Seacoast Artist Association is having another Theme Show and the Titles is “Wild With Color”
I have lots of Watercolors that I could enter but since I love the sea I have chosen my “Owl Head”
Lighthouse image on a wrapped canvas print which will also be for sale during the month of February.  There is also a sale taking place for a week 10% off most hanging pieces until the 12th I believe so you can pick your sweetheart up something pretty for the wall.  Dinner, Drinks and Art go nicely together.

We Laid Them To Rest

Yesterday we traveled through the snow to lay our parents to rest.  Dad gone since 2005 and Mom this past Thanksgiving it was time to join them just 5 days after what would have been their 64th wedding anniversary. They gave dad a service for the time he spent serving America during the Korean War.  Taps was performed beautifully on a snowy day on Cape Cod.  This National Cemetery is so beautiful and well taken care of. All men and woman who serve their country should be laid to rest in the same way.

The Cape was beautiful yesterday but today you will see it buried on your local news stations.  We have about 2″ here in NH. and lots of ice underneath  as we have gravel driveways.

I also added a piece of artwork into the B&W Theme Show at #seacoastartistassociation in #exeternh

Time To Create At Folsom Mill Studio

My garden for most part has been put to rest till spring and we just pulled off another successful “Plant Sale” for our very tiny garden club.  My mom is not doing well with her cancer treatments and the stress of life has me wanting to wet my paper and let the colors flow.

I also signed up for a mystery box which cost $25 at Seacoast Artist Association in Exeter NH now to open the box as my art made from items within must be finished and wired to hang in the show that hangs on

September 24th.  Yikes hope I work good under pressure!

Adding Art To Upcoming Shows

'Wolf Moon" by E. Miller

I have been asked by our Watercolor teacher Doris Rice, along with her other students, to hang a piece of Watercolor with a winter theme so I shall enter my piece titled “Wolf Moon” which will also be for sale.

On the other wall in the Gallery at Seacoast Art Association in Exeter NH there will be a Theme Show also for anyone to enter any kind of work that is “Black and White”. Mine is Titled “It’s Black and White” 
I am new at this part too.

I hope I become more comfortable sharing what I do with strangers Facebook friends are one thing, the public judging is another story.

Some Down Time Needed
Some Down Time Needed

It is Saturday morning and time for some coffee and run through my blog roll and to let you know life’s twists and turns are still happening but trying to find silver linings all the same.

Mom’s surgery to fuse her leg will be next Wednesday from what she told me about her meeting with surgeon it will be 3 to 4 hours under sedation as they place a rod from her hip down the leg to her ankle wonder how they will account for the inches in height each year 😦  yes I am always left with these type of questions as it is my brother and sister in law that are handling all of moms affairs. I had no car for 2 years so hard to take her to and from constant appointments.

I had a shocking call as well just before the fourth seems I have not heard from my stepson for 2 years and in that time he was addicted to Heroin.  What happened to meting friends for some pizza and beer 😦 the call I received was to let me know he had overdosed and was gone.  Just 42.  Kind of old I thought for such heavy drug use but seems it is all the rage which yes which has me enraged at societies who do nothing to stop the influx of poison on it’s people sort of as if they have the opposite plan 😦  He was laid to rest two days ago no longer will he suffer with feeling so useless and lost that a drug of this caliber could make him feel whole. RIP Jimmy how I wish you were still a little boy.

I still take photos and paint but with all that has been going on it has become somewhat forced as a way to walk away and chill.  I like when it is fun and this has not been a god run on fun.

I did enter 2 of my Watercolors in a Themed Art Show “Coastal  New England” at Seacoast Art Association just to try one out 🙂  I would rather sell each piece for $45.00 and let the buyer mat and frame to their liking.  They will hang till Aug.1st with an Artist Reception on Friday,  the 17th though not sure how my mom will come through surgery so I will not plan on attending unless all goes well.

Hope you are all doing better than me man has it been a rough stretch.

Stay safe and see you soon!
