Friday Evening Vernissage

I recently started showing my jewelry at a wonderful little gallery here in Hudson called Mouche! The last Friday of every month they hold a vernissage. That's my idea of a great way to spend a Friday evening, in the company of other artists and those who
come out to see what's new, have a glass of wine, a few nibblies and inspired conversations. I've just added Kate Strickland's Blog address to my list. Kate has paper castings in the gallery and also has her own studio here in Hudson where she offers workshops in mixed media such as journalling and assemblage.

Rome Revisited

Well since my last post (which is already more than a month ago!) I had a great vacation. Went to Rome, took a train through
the Tuscan countryside (I have to say I'm impressed with travelling through Italy. Both the hotel bookings and train travel
were easy to organize) stayed in Cortona (where Under the Tuscan Sun was filmed) and continued on to Florence. Now I know why people who have been there told me I just had to visit there. Inspiration e v e r y w h e r e. I'll post pics here but I also have them in my Flickr account.
I no sooner got back and had to prepare for a vernissage four days later at a great little gallery here in Hudson, called Mouche! I am one of several artists represented there....and for those who knew I am a painter I should mention that it is only my jewelry that is in this gallery. It's kind of fun to have this separate identity as a jewelry artist.
