Season's Greetings

We are getting our first real snow tonight...6"-12" they say. This will make fellow Vermonters happy. I will try to appreciate the beauty of having my world transformed overnight. It is always a magical event and made even better by a little sunshine! If your December is a dark gray gloomy one, here are some rays for you. 4pm Winter Garden.

This large pastel is finally in the frame after a particularly long gestation period in which it just hung around and hung around my studio...sort of like the snowdrops...wishing won't do must just wait until the time is right. Not sure where it's next stop is, but I think I will enjoy it for awhile in it's finished state.

Family at Cottonmill

Saturday December 7 10-6
Sunday December 8 10-5
74 Cotton Mill Hill, Brattleboro, VT

15th Annual Cotton Mill Open Studios and Holiday Sale!

Zoe Tilley Poster and I are guests in Michael Poster's Photography studio for the BIG weekend. There will be over 60 artists, artisans and small businesses showing their work or opening their doors as part of this vibrant community at 74 Cotton Mill Hill, Brattleboro, VT. Michael will be showing some of his recent photographs. Zoe's illustrations, cards, prints and shirts of various beasts drawn in graphite. I will have some 2013 selections from my Fifty State Plein Air Painting Project up on the wall.

Not only is the food by Entera (Tristan Toleno) but there will be Caricatures by Chas. Rak. That's in addition to circus acts, marquetry, blown glass, felted wool, really huge ceramic vessels, owl food, sterling silver jewelry, framed sports and music memorabilia, turned wood, jazz, custom furniture and MORE, way more cool items that may just delight someone on your list. Did I mention caramels and jam...and  the best granola ever? Crepe paper flowers and skin creams. Dance and.....sugarplums? 

 Michael and I would love to have you stop by. The Cotton Mill seems to have a changing intriguing cast of characters. Come visit your faves and see who's new in 2013.

Beware, there's a chance you might want to run away and join the circus.
