No secret that I LOVE summer! I have been having the best time with friends-from outdoor concerts and trips to the beach to watercolors by the pool, reading, cheering on 2 different friend’s new books and just lots of time creating, writing and hanging with good people. We are a little more than halfway through—and I am so busy working on a new business idea (more to come on that!) but I am still planning on more fun ahead. :)
Holidays are best spent with the people you love. Everyone is so busy these days, so I try very hard to see my sweet friends during this season and have some fun. Been busy on the book and some other projects, so I need down time to laugh and cut loose! It’s been an interesting year! Merry Christmas everyone.
After all these years I finally went! What a great place. Since 1913! I sampled oysters from all over and learned I preferred the salty & briny to the sweet. It was a scorching hot day in NYC so what better way to enjoy ducking away from the heat than with fresh seafood and a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc with a friend? :)
Taught a workshop last weekend called "Painting with Scissors"-which ties into the wonderful show going on now at the Montclair Art Museum. If you are a Matisse fan, you MUST go! In addition to many originals, the show also has numerous works of artists who were inspired by Matisse. So gorgeous!
We had a great group and I was so impressed with what each person created! And of course, I just had to take a group pic! :)
When the gouache marks are more fun than what you are actually painting...had to add a smiley face! TGIF. :)
