As an artist, I find that there is so much of my work that doesn’t occur in studio…but rather in the world doing many things…living a creative life.  For me, it seems seasonal.  Perhaps because my work is botanically influenced, like the flowers and the trees, I feel like I am winding down…looking back at my own years progression establishing stronger roots in the art community and learning of the valuable resources to take advantage of to grow as an artist.  I have weathered some storms…and on some days or weeks I relish in the bright light of sunshine as some things come into play.

A couple of weeks ago I launched an Etsy site (you can link to it HERE) where I have decided to begin selling my photographs that I have taken over the years.  The current offering of photography is based on a hike I took a couple of weeks ago along the historic Fox River in St. Charles, Illinois. Also included on the Etsy site is a yearly calendar that I have put together…utilizing images that I have collected over the years.  The calendars have been very popular and I am hoping to add stationary and notecards as well as much more photography.

This past Friday I was happily featured in the Several Starry Nights blog by Shannon Callarman.  I had the pleasure of meeting Shannon while working the same shift for the St. Charles Art’s Council’s NeXt Gallery located at Charlestowne Mall until October 27th.  Shannon has a drive and passion for the promotion of all things art rarely seen.  She is a very talented writer and I hope you will take the time to visit her blog as well…she has so much to share!

This coming Friday  (the 26th) I will be participating in the final 4th Fridays event at Starline Gallery located in Harvard, Illinois. I have had great fortune at this event and I hope you will free to come and enjoy the festivities.  For a $5 entry there are appetizers and wine and live music!

Yep…all in all…this is a good week with hopes of many more of these to come!  I wish you all a good week too!
