Big BIG News!!!

One of the reasons I haven’t posted much of my art in recent weeks is that I had been busy creating commission pieces for a very special collection!!

I’d been holding back with the news until everything was officially done and confirmed….because it’s BIG.

 Three of my Torn Paper Paintings are now part of a
special permanent collection put together for the new Stetson Building in the Weymouth location of the
Boston Children’s Hospital.

I am so excited and proud to have been asked to take part in the collection.

This is the result of the weekend that I had gone to Boston with my husband to enjoy looking around and seeing the open studios night. The following day while visiting shops/galleries on Newbury St. we ended up at L’attitude Gallery. The owner/art consultant there creates many corporate collections and this location for the Children’s Hospital is the latest. During our conversation, one thing lead to another and before I knew it I was being asked to create work for this collection!

I had the chance to see the new building last week when I took the art up to them and it’s looking beautiful. They are preparing the installation of the art at this time and the building is set to officially open in another few weeks.

I hope my pieces put a smile on many little faces in their new location!!

Enough already!

Yes....another foot...yet again.
We've had more snow this winter than I can remember in a long time. I'm only grateful that I've been really busy in the artroom these days because there are few days that I'm willing to venture out
in this.
Since the sun is shinning on last nights snow (natures way of giggling at us) I thought I'd take a few pics from the sunroom and the front yard by the driveway. Enjoy!! 

Yes....that second pic is looking out at the diving board......think spring!

A Brand New WebSite!!

Yes....a new year, a new site.
Instead of the Torn Paper Paintings being simply a part of my watercolorRus website....they now have their very own site!!
And....to make things even easier....the name of the new website is TornPaperPaintings.com
It is beautifully done and I was able to add more content to it. Sarah, who owns and runs SarahsSimpleSites is my wonderful designer. Thank you Sarah....you did an awesome job!!! Anyone who hires you will certainly get more than their moneys worth!!
Sooo....be sure to check it out. Always happy to hear your thoughts!
PS....I'll be having another HUGE announcement about my Torn Paper Paintings coming up very soon!!
Keep an eye open!

Not Forgotten

Nope....haven't forgotten any of you. I'm still here and still in the art room. What has been keeping me VERY busy has been a special commission.
Just today I finally finished the background.....so we're well on the way.
I promise I will post pics of it soon!!!
