In The Moment ~

My ink and watercolor is finally complete and will soon be on its way to Orlando, Florida for the 4th Twitter Art Exhibit. Proceeds from the sale of artwork for this show will benefit The Center for Contemporary Dance, Special Needs Classes, a nonprofit (501)©3 organization dedicated to dance education and outreach. As always, there is much of me within the lines and washes of watercolor of my work… this piece is a true reflection of a lovely moment in time.

Always an honor to have my art hang on the wall amidst such talented artists, many of whom are dear friends. Warm thanks as always to David Sandum, the founder of the TAE and to all those behind the scenes who work tirelessly to ensure the exhibit is a success. It has been a pleasure to donate my art over the years and to watch the exhibit evolve into such a fantastic international collective.

I invite you to read more about the exhibit here, to follow along on twitter and, if you haven’t done so already,  to create a work of art to be included in the exhibition. The deadline for art submission is February 24, 2014… More details on the Call For Artists page.

Shine On

Shine On

Rocks in pockets weigh me down
Exhale exhausted…
Yet gems along shoreline shine.
Call to me
Like the light I crave
I’ll come….
Tender hearted,
No matter…
Mind if I sit for a moment
Catch my breath
Before skipping my soul stones
Heartbeat hopscotch
Towards waters edge.

Shine On was my contribution for the firstTwitter Art Exhibit in Moss Norway in 2010 to raise money at the local library so that books could be purchased for the children. A most worthy cause and I was thrilled to be a part of it.  I am still working on my piece for next year’s exhibit but will be sure to post it here when complete:)

The next Twitter Art Exhibit will be held in Orlando, Florida in March of 2014. The submission deadline is February 21, 2014. To learn more about the twitter art exhibit or to view the Call For Artists, please click here to visit the website.
