What a terrific Winter it was!
I taught a variety of very successful workshops throughout Florida in Key West, Key Largo, Naples, Bonita, Sanibel, Boca Grande, and Vero Beach. It was a great season on what I refer to as my “annual winter tour.” (I am pleased to announce that I am returning to most all of those spots in the Winter of 2018. Keep an eye on my website later this summer for details.) I am looking forward to a few upcoming Spring and Summer workshops back up north. (See CLASSES for overviews and details on registration. I teach at so many different venues, I don’t handle any registrations - that is always offered through the art center I am partnering with.)
I was one of 10 Indianapolis Artists selected through an application process last September to participate in the Indianapolis Arts Council’s High Art Program. The program is a partnership with Clear Channel and places art on a billboard and displays throughout Indianapolis the next calendar year. Visit the Indianapolis Arts Council’s website for location details... my art started in Greenwood on County Line Road in the Fall, then was sighted up on North Michigan Road, and after that it was spotted at 465 and 70 on the east side of town, and most recently it was spotted on the west side near Rockville Road and 465. It has gotten incredible coverage, and I will be excited to see where it shows next...
My very popular one-man exhibition at Bok Tower and Gardens in Lake Wales, FL will be wrapping up on April 13. Then I am looking forward to exhibiting my first time at the Mainsail Art Fair in St. Petersburg, FL on April 22 & 23. After that, I return to Indiana to show at the wonderful Broad Ripple Art Fair in Indianapolis in May. One of my favorites! I am also very excited to be returning to the prestigious Old Town Art Fair in Lincoln Park, Chicago on June 10 & 11. Of course, I am planning to return to a few of my favorite shows in Michigan in July and August - (see SHOWS for details.) Then, I return to the Penrod Art Fair, Indianapolis in September and am proud to announce a show scheduled for Fall in New Harmony, Indiana at the Hoosier Salon. It will be fun and interesting as I will be showing with my Mother, Bertie David who is an oil painter and a very well known porcelain artist and teacher. Mom and I both attended Herron School of Art roughly 20 years apart and have both had successful careers. I cannot wait to assemble our bios and About the Artist info for this exhibition. That will be big fun! (We showed together and had a very successful exhibition at the Hoosier Salon/Broad Ripple here in Indianapolis back in 2003.) I know it will be an incredible exhibition! As always, if you want to see any of my work, you are welcome to visit my studio - just send me an email to make an appointment.
Exciting News! The second Season of HGTV’S Good Bones starts in May. My paintings have been included on many of the episodes this year. Below is a photo of one that gives you an idea of what’s in store. Keep an eye out and I will be sure to make updates as the season progresses! In the meantime, be sure and visit www.hgtv.com/shows/good-bones.
I cannot say it enough, thanks to all who support and encourage me along this journey. Hope to see you soon!
