Hello and Greetings from the Pink Palace. Right here is where I make the magic, do the art, and charm the cat Charles. I have lots of art irons in the fire but today I am concentrating on making sketches of the Black Madonna for a marvelous online class that I am taking from Shiloh Sophia McCloud. Yep, going to school while barefoot and eating burritos, that is my kind of class. I love the synchronicity that is happening with this class...I go to the library and find books for sale for a buck that are by an author we are discussing..I go to the grocery store and see a newspaper with a photo of Our Lady of Guadalupe and an article by the same author. I check out an artist, Alex Grey, that my son and his friends tell me reminds them of my work and I discover that he has written a book that speaks directly to me about making art. I am painting ,blogging, and saying "Open Sesame" to all those doors.
