"Be happy.  It's one way of being wise." - Colette

Happy...summer fun, paddling, horse back riding, biking, grilling out, and YES painting!  What does summer fun and Happy mean to you?

I hope you have enjoyed your summer and as I prepare to send two (yes, two) of my children off to college this weekend, I reflect on my many, many years in my studio and feel so lucky to have been able to be surrounded by my home, business, art and children...all in one place at one time!  Some may call that crazy (some days it was) but I call it perfect!   My youngest son is 13 and he will keep our household interesting for the next few years while my other two children are off to discover new and exciting adventures in their life!
I have a ritual every 'end of the summer'....my open studio...Labor Day Weekend Open House...August 30, 31, Sept 1, 9am-4pm  with a wine and cheese reception on Friday, August 29, 5-7 pm.  If you are in the area, please join me for art, wine, cheese and conversation!  This year's show will feature my recent paintings as well as sculpture by Pasqua Warstler, jewelry by Laura Hornick, sculpture by Nancy Neumann, jewelry by Jennifer Larrabee, glass by Alysa Diebolt, and jewelry by Kathy Vincent.  I am always so excited to share with you the talents and creations of area artists.
I look forward to seeing you soon!
I PROMISE....to have the studio cleaned up a little bit...well maybe...sure, I can find time to do that....hmmm.....

I wish I could come to your open studio! It's inspiring to hear from other women artists who are able to do their art amidst raising children. Thank you!
just keep truckin, Bridgette! I have just sent 2 off to college, painting all the while they were younger and of course now having more time even with one sweet little 13 year old still at home...it's a juggling act...but we can do it! LOVE your work!
Paint on...
