Somehow that title sounds like a shmoozy late-night commercial blurb, doesn’t it? I don’t know if that will draw you in or scare you away! I just thought “Ready to Advance your Mandala Creating Skills? New Workshop Next Week!” wouldn’t fit well in the title bar area very well. That being said….
Well, are you? Ready to advance those creative mandala skills? Hmmm?
Next Wednesday evening, August 21st from 6 to 9 p.m. at Art Lab Indy I’ll be presenting “Mandala Art II” (such a creative class name, no?). If you’ve got the basics of creating a mandala in a square/circle format and are ready to break out of that boxy world then this is for YOU. We’ll explore creating mandalas off-center, in multiples and also be using a new background (watercolor paper) and (surprise!) watercolors, too.
This will be my last class for a while as time for our move approaches, if you miss this one you’ve got a couple months to wait before I’ll be teaching again. Maybe just don’t miss it, how’s that sound? Contact Art Lab Indy to register for class, cost is $35. As always all supplies are provided so just bring yourself & a playful attitude. See you then!
P.S. If you missed the Intro to Mandala Class and are a self-starter, here are instructions on the basics so you’ll be caught up for this class: Making A Mandala

I’ve decided that this summer needs a title to sum it up, a long awkward title. The best one I’ve come up with to describe it’s effect on this blog is “The Summer in Which a Sudden Move was Decided Upon and The Artist’s Blog was Left to Die”. Eh, not too catchy but VERY appropriate.
Yes, we are still in the midst of it…hope to sign on the dotted lines yet this month then follow that with a month of labor-intensive relocation and settling in. After that? Then the building begins…which includes a new studio space for ME. Happiness! I’m guessing that to be a many-month long process. In the interm I will be creating art when and however I can…be it outdoors, at the kitchen table or spread out on the bedroom floor!
Recently I’ve been experimenting with using spray paint as a medium. I’ve used it with metal and wood before but not as a painting medium. It’s been fun, and I’ve also emptied several cans that won’t need to be packed & moved (multi-tasking at it’s best). The background material was all re-purposed and donated so I’ll be able to show these pieces at the new upcycled/recycled show I’m participating in! Here’s a section of one piece that I’ve been adding pencil & pen details too:
I still need to edit and share all the images from my last show…I just can’t seem to make myself sit down at the computer and do anything right now. But you WILL get to see them sometime, I promise! In the meantime I will try to at least touch base here once a week so the poor blog doesn’t feel so neglected.
If you’d like to visit my home studio before it’s totally dismantled then stop by THIS Saturday, August 10th. It will be open between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. as part of the Second Saturday Gallery Tour – my last one until the new studio is up & running!

I wanted to thank all of you who purchased items either online or in person at the BIG moving sale over the last few day! As I go through the remaining art on Monday I will be posting some extra-special deals on this page and my Facebook page throughout the day. Perhaps you’ll find that one special piece of art you’ve been looking for – like the ones shown here that all have new homes!

Whoosh! Exhale. The solo show is up at ArtSplash Gallery in Carmel, Indiana and I feel like I’ve got a little time to breath. I’m still trying to clean and re-organize the studio after two months of cranking out new work, I’ve got a bit of a deadline for that since this Saturday is the Second Saturday Open Studio Tour as part of the Hendricks County Cultural Trail. In the meantime I’ve been playing a bit, digitally, with some items I’ve not done for a while. Today I thought I’d share a few digital kaleidoscopes I’ve created the last week.
I will, eventually, get around to sharing all the fun and funky upcycled/repurposed art from the show but that takes some photo editing and right now I’m not quite ready to tackle that task!
I hope that your summer is off to a fantastic start, enjoy all that it has to offer.
