Zanesville, OH – First Friday

What a joy to be back in Zanesville for the First Friday Art Walk. Sadly at the beginning of the pandemic I left my Masonic Temple studio with little hope of using it for the duration. Not sure where my main focus is these days when it comes to art but my forever art friends reside in Zanesville.

What an honor to be given a wall in Butterfly’s Art Studio so I can house a few pieces of art until I figure out if I want to find a room there again. Carrie is no doubt a life long friend and art inspiration.

We made a family night of it and ran around everywhere we could. Had dinner at Urban Comforts and took in a little music along with the art. I sold three pieces and saw lots of familiar faces.
