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.

Old Cornhole Boards Renewed

I have been moving these old cornhole boards around in my mom’s garage for years. I go over to mow her lawn once a week in the summer. I have thought about updating them and moving them to my garage but there is never time. One of my best art pals, Carrie Turner, and I took the beat up old red and blue boards and gave them a new vibe. Hoping to use them at the Buckeye Lake Art & Music Fair and our local Buckeye Lake Farmers Market.


The world is starting to feel OPEN again. The masks are coming off. Concerts and art walks are making a comeback. I am feeling happier and painting in the evening. Better weather has me out walking again. Flowers are up. Pool pass purchased.

Feeling unchained.

Feeling Inspired

With the promise of the Buckeye Lake Art and Music Fair in the works, teamed with the blooming daffodils, I am feeling hopeful. Easter brunch with friends made life feel near normal. The community fed my soul. We were vaccinated the week before and our plans are to continue walking through the pandemic living the life we choose.

I painted on some mini canvases over the weekend too and took a little time to smell the flowers with Woob.
