"Georgia on My Mind" - Playing with Paint class Oct. 10 with artist Nancy Laliberte

"Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven't time, and to see takes time - like to have a friend takes time." - Georgia O'Keefe

This Saturday is Playing with Paint time! I am excited to share the love of painting at my monthly acrylic painting class Saturday, October 10, from 10 am - 1 pm. Georgia O'Keefe is one of my favorite artists, and this month's theme is "A Brush with History:  Homage to O'Keefe."  I'll be picking up some fresh flowers from the local farm market and we will be taking the time to see, smell and paint the flowers while enjoying the friendships of like-minded people who love art as much as we do. 


Details and registration are here, but feel free to email me if you have any additional questions. It is amazing what you can accomplish when you are "playing with paint" and the pressure is off, and the focus is on having fun! Try something new, come join us...

Sweet Celebration is another painting that is a part of The Artist's Muse:  Wisconsin Artists and Poets exhibit showing at the Center for the Visual Arts in Wausau through October 31st, 2015. I love painting cupcakes! When artist and show curator, Christine Alfery, came across Tori Wellhouse's poem, Theory of Cake, Christine thought of my cupcake paintings and asked if I would like to team up with Tori. Well, Yes! Thank you, Christine and Tori! 

Tonight is the opening reception from 5 - 7 pm. Several of the poets featured in the show will be reading, including Tori. 

Did you know that Sweet Celebration pairs up beautifully with Coffee and Donuts, and Almond Joy? And they have zero calories! All three are available for a special purchase price of $500, a savings of $85 and about 2,585 calories or so. ;-)

And here is the delicious poem by Tori Wellhouse...


Theory of cake 
You are an occasion.
Cake, in fact.
All your ingredients –
flour, sugar,
the look in your eyes –
measured parts
of a sucrose destiny.
You have memorized
yourself: finding fate
in the small spaces,
blending eggs, milk,
the air around your edges,
pouring the light-haired
batter: a mix of heat, poise,
s o d i u m   b i c a r b o n a t e.
You froth an alchemy
that swells, gilding
aroma, deep-seated
as hipbones. Your
surface splits joy.
There’s a sheen to you,
made for buttercream;
the knack of hiding crust
with long-leg frosting.
You cube womanhood,
serving yourself up
with a party napkin --
thumbing the crumbs.
