This past Saturday, I hosted my first open studio of the year. It was a delightful opportunity to share my latest creations and works-in-progress. One of my favorite parts of an open studio is having the chance to discuss art and hear everyone's impressions. Although everyone had their personal favorites, the universal favorites were the works included in what I'm now calling the Heartlight series. Many thanks to my Aunt Nia who gave me the idea for the series name based on Neil Diamond's Heartlight song. Before she gave me the idea, I was calling it the LED light series. I like Heartlight much better. The Heartlight paintings are particularly different because they have lighted hearts powered by battery-operated LED lights. To see these paintings and others included in Saturday's Open Studio, check out the slide show below.
The next open studio event is scheduled for Friday, June 8, 2012, 4-8pm. I hope to see you there!
I love planning memorable events... creating colorful art... every shade of blue... imagining the best... everything about the creative process.
