taking flight into art, love, and life (the blog)

finally, some art and news i can share....(!)

girlfriends, on canvas , available soon

i am super thrilled to have an article in the latest issue of cloth paper scissors magazine. i've heard rumors that it's out and available in bookstores now. the article is about my very personal journey into the creative life, my heart spilled out onto six glossy pages of words and color. i am feeling vulnerable, excited, exposed, happy disbelief, and full on gratitude.

it arrived in the mail the other day and i gleefully sat next to all the plants and windows and read it, as i do with every issue, cover to cover. what a joy. my heart feels big.

I was thinking of you yesterday. I can't wait to see the new CPS. Have you ever painted any of your girls looking up, at a bird, the sun or the moon, or looking up to pick an apple, or in an orchid of fruit trees that are giants and the girl is just a little thing. Just thoughts I had, I don't know why, they just came to me and I told myself I would pass them on.

That is very exciting Kelly and I am so pleased for you. Your work is so fresh-it reminds me of the first signs of spring and I hope that you will continue to have success. There is nothing more graitfying than doing the work of your heart and having it welcomed with open arms. It will be a few weeks till CPS reaches the shelves in Canada, but when it does, I will be sure and read your article first.

Well done!

That's so exciting! I'll have to go out and buy an issue. I have one of your prints ("girly") hanging in my daughter's bedroom and we love it! As a budding artist just discovering my own creative outlet, I always jump when someone at a show refers to me as "the artist" and I can totally appreciate how amazing it must be to have your art in a magazine! I look forward to reading it!

Lina said...
