New Possibilities!

After a tough beginning to 2010 - a crashed hard drive, frozen pipes, bad back, and of course the neverending financial challenges we're all faced with right now - I've got some real news and something to say!

First of all, I have 19 CEILIDH! paintings in an exhibit opening March 5 at MacGregor Fine Art, 34 West George St., Glasgow www.macgregorfineart.co.uk . there is an opening reception on March 5, from 4:30 - 8:30 pm. the exhibition will be up from March 5 through the 27th. Other artists in this exhibit are: Callum MacFarlane-Barrow, Victoria Maxwell MacDonald, and Jonathan Shearer. All welcome!

I've also made it back to the easel after discovering that the best of my Moroccan digital photos were saved for posterity in facebook (thank you!!!), and was able to finish a lovely little painting of a berber shepherd and his youngest son. Its always such a relief to again pick up the brush and find out that yes, I CAN still put paint to canvas and come out with a good painting! But you'll have to wait until I have my computer back to see the work! Challenges keep getting in the way of this creative life I've chosen, but I know from long experience that nothing else will serve me. And so I keep putting one foot in front of the other and hold high expectations for this little exhibition coming up. Wish me luck!
