36th Annual Arts of the Terrace, Mountlake Terrace

Autumn is here officially, and it's time for the 36th Annual Arts of the Terrace Festival in Mountlake Terrace! I am so happy to say that all the works I submitted for the show were juried in! My four in the Miniature category are, Crow and CloverAfghan KittyPatience and The Hunter. My new drawing, Outside In, was also selected in the Drawing, Painting and Prints category! I always look forward to this show and this year, they've added new hanging panels that accentuate the artwork and new lighting that really makes the colors pop!

Finally!  I'm so excited to be back making my art and participating in shows once again.  It's been a very busy year with a lot of family changes, a lot of physical and emotional work, as well as moving house!  During that time, it was very difficult to make art and stay focused.  Now that I am back in my studio working, I feel so much better.  My work is my meditation and focus, and I'm very happy to be back to creating!

 In addition to the Mountlake Terrace Show, I have submitted work to the Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers Society show coming up in November and will be submitting work to the Miniature Art Society of Florida,  for their show in January 2015. I'll be back blogging and posting my new work and the shows I'm in as soon as they happen.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my work and the shows I'm participating in.  I apologize for the long absence, but sometimes life happens and you need to change direction.  I'm happy I have my art to come back to.
