Artist Reception at LUVA

Artist Reception at LUVA

LUVA Hair and Day Spa is a really special place to exhibit your art! For one thing, the people who own and work there are especially friendly and welcoming. But the space itself is like a cocoon that wraps you up in comfort! Last night was the artists reception for Yvonne Gastelú and I and we had a really great time!  Thank you for this lovely opportunity, Alisson DeFaria and Luiz Soares! You are both so gracious and a pleasure to work with! And thanks to Gary Christenson, so good to always be there for community artists and for the great tweet!

I was so happy to be with Gallery friends again! Ose and Marcel Scwabb, Ose Manheim and Elena Martinez! Sue Colozzi and her husband surprised me with their appearance – thanks for the visit! Happy to have my youngest sister, Marie Crowell, accompany me for the night. We had a great after hour or so at the Pearl Street Station.


My art will be there for the next six months, so feel free to visit anytime! We may have some more special events while there, and I’ll bring in new work as I make it.


February Artists Unbound

February Artists Unbound

My February contribution to Artists Unbound went out to Gabriel DiTota.  It’s another multi-level 10 inch piece in the Deconstruction/Reconstruction theme for the year. The base is some hand dyed fabric and the top pieces are a deconstructed photo.

The Shuttle

Here’s the original photo taken at the American Textile Museum in Lowell, which is no longer there.

Do check out today’s post from Nina Marie!   Good read and good art!

Small Stuff

Small Stuff

Been a rough week for America. I know, I missed last Friday’s blog post. Been like this… you know, you’ve got to keep the music coming!

Well, I haven’t been flying anywhere.  Pretty happy right here making things.  Still working on that quilt piece but lots of other things happening on top of cleaning and re-organizing – getting all the winter clothes out and the rest put away. Been working up some small collages, 5X7s, 9X6s and starting some 10 inch pieces – mostly mixed media, although this next one is all fiber.

Walking In Circles


I may do this Friday blog every other week until I catch up.  I’m also trying to learn Lightroom, a really good Adobe photo editing program.  At the moment I have a free trial to see what I think of it.  But it takes me awhile to get these new things that the youngsters pick right up on so it just eats up my time like MS. Pacman once did! I can also only sit at the puter for so long!

So, before you go, you may want to chill for a minute and listen up…see you soon!
