Button Factory Saturday and Sunday

The workshop is busy. Paint jumps from the brush,
I hope to see you ... at the Button Factory crush.
But even if you're not there,
for your well-being I do care,
so best wishes to you to find a good glass of holiday slush. (I mean that in a nice way... I couldn't think of another good rhyme :-).
Thank you to the Button Factory folks for having me! So many artists and their guest artists under one roof. This event has been going on for 25 years and is one of the top open studios in New England. Happy Holidays, everyone. I hope you find some color to spice up your egg nog :-).


This is why I like doing art festivals and artisan fairs....

.... because I meet nice people. 
Thank you to all of the organizers, the artisans, and the patrons. With your enthusiasm, your conversation, and your interest... you make my job seem not like a job at all. (The picture in the bottom middle is of my seemingly skeptical husband, Mal, who is my forever biggest fan.)


This weekend

Join us! Tons of artisans. Lots of color. Gobs of energy. :-)


Dear Deborah....

SOLD "Poppies in the Breeze" 12x12 original on deep profile canvas.

Dear Deborah, I loved our conversation Sunday... connecting and relating to the same visual experiences and artists. It is amazing how color and direction in art can be the glue that pulls people together. It was so lovely to meet you. I hope you enjoy your new art for many years to come.

14 Cedar Street.... thanks for the fun weekend

Thank you to all who came out for the open studios... Eliza, Lianne, Mario, Leslie, Steve, Lori, Deborah, Karen, David, Diane, Cathy, Irene, Denise, Patrick, Kathy, Beth, Charlotte,  and many more - it was so nice to see you. And thank you to the artists and other small businesses in this handsome old mill building for sharing your space with me... you are all doing great things by bringing "new love" into incredible historic spaces.  I look forward to seeing you again!


Amesbury Open Studios.... this Saturday and Sunday

The entire town of Amesbury is celebrating the arts this weekend. I will be at 14 Cedar. Click the image for a printable detailed brochure and join us!
 As a little thank you for coming, I am giving out one Rose Bryant folded blank greeting card with envelope (new designs) to the first 50 people at my booth WITH THIS COUPON. Instructions: You need to print and bring this image with you to get your free card. A nice start to the holiday season, I'd say!
(a little update 10/25: Printing any part of the wording in this offer or any part of the photo- "free greeting card"-qualifies as the coupon. Some of you have had a little trouble printing.... hope this helps.)


And the winner is...

I am sure there were lots of contemplative moments this week. Hopefully, as time goes on, things will smooth out a bit. Thanks to all for being a part of this little give-away process....
The winner of the tiny painting "Wind and Water" is Christine Lelecas.... Congratulations, Christine! I will contact you and send it out.
This give-away was the last in this series for October. The next four give-aways will be in December. If you haven't already done so, do "like" my facebook page. That is where the most info goes out about specials and gifts.
Have a great weekend, everyone.... think of others and remember to exercise your right to vote.
