I just rented and moved into my own little corner of an art studio in the Pendleton Street Arts District in Greenville, South Carolina. I'm sharing the studio with two very talented artists: Suzanne Vitti and Ben. My easel is set up right near the window, so I can paint in the natural light.

Last night was "First Friday" art walk. We had quite a crowd come through, considering it was Labor Day weekend and many people were away. "First Fridays" is always on the first friday of every month. All the studios and galleries in the district are open and displaying a wide range of incredible art. Some of the studios have live music and many serve free food and drinks. All up and down the Arts District you find special events, book signings, guest artists, raffles and nice people. It's the hottest party in town!

I sold a painting last is good.


  1. Good for you, for selling a I said on my blog, it was slow..lightening everywhere...scared people off...oh well....
    I am pleased to be your "first follower"...
    I froze the spice cupcakes for the next First Friday, which will be our "Art Guild" gallery.

  2. Congrats on selling a painting! And on your new blog! I love it. Now get it out there sis.
    Love you much,

  3. Ah! You know I do that! I make people a year older as soon as they pass the 6 month mark. I can't even remember how old I am supposed to be, by the time my birthday gets here.
