Art Show at Gathering Place West-side

Lots of art and little tea bag art especially little bluebirds are flying out from my art show at The Gathering Place’s west-side location and into new homes!  The show is there until after mid-June.  Then I will have a show at the Gathering Place east-side from July through Sept.   I do commission work… so if you see something sold know I can create something similar.  I will donate a portion of my sales to the Gathering Place, which supports people with cancer.

My Art at Cleveland Botanical Garden

IMG_20170316_113524777.jpgMy art show Whimsical Blooms and Curious Creatures is on display at the Cleveland Botanical Garden’s Big Spring event which begins Saturday 3/18/17 and goes through 4/23/17.  I have 70 paintings on display …. that is a lot of paintings to hang!  Thanks to my wonderful husband and daughter for their assistance with the set-up yesterday.  I am grateful to be a part of this wonderful fun and color-filled event with lots of flowers.  The hyacinths smell divine.  Hope you will stop on down and check it all out.

I will be teaching a class called Art Exploration on Wednesday January 25th from 6pm to 8pm at the Kirtland Community Center at 7900 Euclid Chardon Rd, Kirtland, OH 44094.

This class is for anyone (even those who have never painted before) who wants to explore painting and mixed media art in an intuitive and non-judgmental way. I look forward to sharing techniques and my passion for intuitive art making in this fun and playful class. If you plan on attending please in advance of the class message me at gettigd@sbcglobal.net, therefore I will know how many supplies to bring.

Here is the class description:

We will use acrylic paint and other supplies to make a free-spirited intuitive painting. No art experience necessary… all levels welcome!

Tea Bag Art week 5

It is so comforting to have a cup of tea. Tea is a must in my life. Holding the warm cup, sipping slowly… drinking tea brings moments of needed calm to my fast paced life with the seemingly endless things to do. Maybe it is me being an older mom, but I absolutely crave serenity and quiet these days and I am learning it is vital to my well-being.

It is week 5 of my tea bag art posting and here is my wabi-sabi tea pot (which recently sold to a woman in California).
