The reception I planned for my art exhibition at the Half Moon Bakery & Bistro in Jamesville, New York on Thursday, October 20, 2016 was more a birthday party for my mother and a chance for my friends and acquaintances to come and experience this quaint business on the corner of East Seneca Turnpike and Apulia Road. It is a tiny place and quite honestly, I did not expect such an amazing turnout for the hours of 3:00 to 5:00 pm. Thank you so much!
I am grateful for all of the wonderful people who came to celebrate and to support me and my artwork, and to eat delicious cake made by proprietor Debbe Titus. I gave her full reign on the design of the cake and she created something spectacular for my mom and for us to share with the thirty + people who attended the event.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank you, Debbe, for all of your hard work and for the opportunity to exhibit in this space. I don’t actively seek out art exhibition opportunities – they tend to fall into my lap serendipity-like. I seem to spend more time these days with my fashion interests, as well as supporting other artists, and so it meant the world to me that so many people took the time to spend an afternoon chatting with me about my artwork.
The Talisman series is about seeking love, the desire to be loved. I created the paintings in 2008. I’m finally breaking free of my lifetime of limiting beliefs regarding love in relationships, realizing that it is in fact, all around me and living inside of me. I love my life and spending time with friends and family. Love my world – that I can create magic – see magic all around me every single day. And that is just really fun. I am truly blessed. Thank you! <3
