Wow. it’s been a while since I’ve written in my blog. I will have to remind myself to add to it more often. I have decided that I will paint at the Barrie art club on Mondays. It’s usually a paint out day but because of the snow and the cold the club stays indoors until spring or goes out on really warm days. I’m usually in the studio everyday and it gets somewhat lonely. I have my dog, but just hearing a voice goes a long way in fufilling my need to socialize and have friends. I just get so caught up in what I’m doing I forget how long I’ve been away. It’s that compulsion to paint I just have to do it, like some kind of addiction of something.. If I stopped it would feel like I’ve stopped breathing.. I’ve even woken up in the middle of the night to jot some idea down or even paint a whole painting. It’s crazy but it’s my whole life.

I have joined a marketing group at the club. We meet for the first time in January. I hope it helps us all sell our paintings. We are all feeling the slow down with the way things are in the market right now. So we plan to pool our resources and show our art together as a group. There are a few shows we plan to enter for the next year. When I know what they are I will post them here and on my website.

The club was recently featured on the “A” channel with K.C. Colby. I missed the event but heard it went well. He bought a membership for his mother for Christmas. Can’t wait to meet her.

Christmas is next week and I’m feeling pretty relaxed. We didn’t buy gifts this year but are happy we will all be together.

I hope all of you will have Happy Holidays!

“Time For Joy”
