Paris Area Art Expo: 200+ Artists! Espace Art et Liberté – Yes, that’s me next to my painting!

Feature Photo for Art Expo jan feb 2013

This is not my usual kind of blog post.  Then again, since it’s only my 9th blog post… is there really a usual kind?  I figured that since it’s France related, art related, me related I can share this here.

As many of you know, I don’t often show myself in photos on the Internet.  I planned on just taking a photo of my painting on the gallery wall… but after a little convincing from my sweet man I caved and agreed to let him take this photo so I could share it with all of you.  My Mom was thrilled to see me in a photo next to one of my paintings, so I guess no regrets.  😉

Oh right, and for those who didn’t know… as you can see, I also paint.  Thank goodness for that Pink Super Cape in my closet.  It comes in handy while juggling all I do in a day.  It’s amazing what one can do with a Super Cape, lots of espresso and many late nights!  My friends and family often joke that someday I will be sponsored by a coffee company.

    • lol From where I stand, your writing doesn’t need much help. 😉 As for my Pink Super Cape… how do I put this nicely? It is indeed precious and I can never imagine parting with it. That said, if you get yourself to Paris one day… perhaps I might consider letting you borrow it if you promise to take good care of it. 🙂

  1. Your painting looks great! Just wished I could be there in the Paris area during the art show timeframe so I can see your work. There’s always next time!

  2. A beautiful painting by a beautiful artist ! I love the colors. Congratulations. When the expo is over, you could just ship that right back to the USA in care of me.

    • Thank you so much for your sweet words. I’m very happy that you like my painting. As for sending it back to the states… as of this very moment it is still for sale – Although,you might need to fight my Mom for it. As I told her, it’s first come first serve! Just like any nice daughter would. lol Kidding… well, not really. Actually, I was laughing when I said it so… let’s just say, anything is possible!

      I just hope it finds a happy home… it will definitely be missed if sold, but I love the idea of it out there somewhere with someone who likes it as much as we liked having it here with us. It brightened our home.

      Thank you again for you support in my artwork, as well as with my blog. I appreciate you being here with me. DM me if you’d like more details about the painting. 😉

  3. Love you talent and your painting… but I have known you for years via twitter and fb now and this is the FIRST time I have seen you in a picture. SO mostly I am loving seeing you dear friend!! Thank that man of yours on my behalf 🙂

  4. Congrats, your painting is as beautiful as you, glad we got to see a photo of you, but knew you thru your writings and that you have an inner beauty as well as an outer beauty. Your painting brings me to a place of passion and some how peace.

    • Thank you, Libby. The gallery manager has been giving me some very positive feedback, so I am happy. Hopefully, my next show will involve more than just one painting – now that would be nice! 🙂

      Your support is greatly appreciated and I am thrilled to have you as part of my blogging world.
      Best wishes to you!
