Good Weather and Good News!

After a crazy summer with wild and sometimes violent rainstorms, autumn so far has been particularly beautiful this year. The foliage has been remarkable and nature is so inspiring so my husband, daughter and I went to New Hampshire this week to pick apples, and above is a picture of them at Lake Winnepesaukee. The picture below is from Rockland, MA near my studio where the colors are also stunning.
The good news is that I learned yesterday that I was accepted as a Gallery Artist Member at the South Shore Art Center, a designation at a local art organization in Cohasset that offers gallery space, shows, events, and classes. It was a juried process so it was a valuable experience organizing and presenting my work and I'm so glad to be a part of this level of membership. Looking forward to being a part of this group and participating in some exciting events!

Congratulations! I'm not surprised that you were juried in, your work is unique. And you know i love that purple!

This is such exciting news (although, I'll be honest, I knew before it was on the blog). You worked really hard, and you earned the rewards.

All I can say is... I TOLD you so! I'm so happy for you, but let me tell everyone that it is a difficult jurying process - LOTS of artists don't get in! This is fabulous, Paula, and I'm very proud of you.
