all Quiet on the blog front... but lots going on in studio and beyond
I guess its really been a month since I lasted posted. I managed to get my two paintings into the Latino Cancer Summit Art Show here in San Francisco in July. YEAH!!! I'm also going to be in a show called Primavera on April 3rd through May 8th with three other women artists here in San Francisco. The show will be at Puerto Alegre restaurant in the Mission. I also managed to get one of my paintings, GRATITUDE published this year in the Mujeres de Maiz 2012 Zine. Finally, Mission Open Studios are around the corner at the fabulous 1890 Bryant. They open April 13th with a Friday night preview and continue through April 14th and 15th from 12 to 6pm.. More to come on open studios and my Primavera show in the next few weeks.
The reason I started this blog post was to celebrate the great team I belong to on Etsy: The SFetsy Team. They started a new team activity with members creating Treasuries from a theme. Last week was, "What I Wore and Where I Went." Since most of my time is spent at the studio (and at home too) I decided to title mine, "Another day at the studio." I chose all SFetsy members and their work. It was great fun putting this together. I guess I won the weekly theme treasury (WOW!) and had lots of people look at it. Well....read the post below from the SFetsy Blog and take a look and see what I did. They also featured a necklace I made featuring friend Diana Gaspar's beautiful Frida pendant! I am so grateful. Its so nice to be rewarded when you do something for fun!!
p.s. Have had to slow down for the past few days. Caught a horrific cold and now sidelined. I know there is something called balance where in my post Leukemia hospitalization and remission state, I have to find.ways of slowing down. Haven't quite found the balance.necessary to create, pursue as much as I can. Honestly, I have to realize when I don't take the time to rest enough, my own body forces me to.
I'm a terrible patient when I have a cold. Things are harder to figure out when your head hurts, sinus ache, ears are plugged plus you have a nagging cough. See, I told you I'm a lousy cold patient. I'm actually, finally, getting better - but you'd never know it!
