seriously, i forgot how much of my time i put into this event!! unfortunately, i have to postpone the show until late january. there are several reasons for this: firstly, i had a job change, followed closely by having to move house (due to the landlord selling the house), and then followed by a massive 6 week bout with tonsilitis, laryngitis and other throat issues... now i don't know about you, but i'm pretty sure most people find it hard to be creative when you feel awful! and more importantly, my mom and step-dad will be out of the country soon and won't be back until the end of january, and i must have them there - they are my biggest cheerleaders and helpers!
but the good news is that it will be just in time for valentine's day, so keep that in mind. what better gift than an original drawing already matted, and they're only $100!! there's bound to be something in the entire collection that your valentine would love!
also, i have found the most amazing charity to donate to this time - Radio Lollipop, which is a charity that helps sick kids in the hospital at Mater. i'm so excited, and i got to meet them all last week, and they are most helpful. i should get a lot of help from their volunteers and i can't wait to donate to them! they are just amazing!
i'll keep you posted as to when i start up again...

as i was going through my boxes of belongings i brought over from the u.s., i found this cd with footage from one of the gallery walk nights in my gallery. my dear friend and fellow-artist john haynes filmed this evening, and it was the most fun gallery walk ever!
once a month, all the galleries in the oklahoma city paseo art district would open their doors to host an evening of wine, hors d'oeuvres and fabulous art. and people from all over the city would come and enjoy the wares of all the artists, the street music, the fine food, taking in the bohemian spirit of the evening, drinking too much, and probably buying some art.
this was back in a time when i used to wear butterfly wings to any occasion, and i still had my beautiful attention-deficit-disorder german shepherd/pit bull mix puppy, named kitty. sounds too good to be true (ha ha!) but it was a great time of my life, and i will always have fond memories of this gallery and the art community there.
