I did not know that I secretly like being a party planner. I have had so much fun getting ready for Peony Days..June 30th and July 1st. We are going to a have dessert table and lots of fun and learning. Inside the gift bags is good art information and a peony photograph and a french macaron the size of a hamburger. They are really special and kind of girly in fun way.
I still have two slots open for Sunday but we really are booked for this event. I hope to make it an annual thing because I love all the detail and the step by step process of getting ready.
The Peony event at my home is coming up in a few days. June 30th and July 1st. The cakes are ordered and the tables are set up . I have gift bags with photographs and cookies to take home. Plus some extras. I think I am more excited about the goody bags than I am about anything else. I do have two spots open for July 1st but that's it. We really are booked solid. I will try to take pictures and maybe even live stream the event. I will be doing a watercolor demo so it may be difficult to have my hands in all pots but I will do my best. I hope this is just one of many events to come. I have had so much fun planning it.
What I have learned so far:
I am going to call my new avatar Martha. I will share more about this another time. It is a concept having to do with creating your audience and right now I am naming her Martha. I am making a complete biography for her. Meanwhile I am consolidating my curriculum for downloading in the future. These are busy days.
A few weeks ago we were talking about trends in painting on my Youtube channel. This is a follow up to that conversation. I would love to know what you think of this industry response to the popularity of abstract tonal art.
What I have learned so far.
There is always a place for a good painting. Even the cave men knew it.

Is there something you really want to achieve in life? You have to name it to claim it and here is my tiny story about how I realized I did that. It is funny how you can make goals and not realize you reached them until you reflect back. Please join my Youtube channel after watching this video to find out more.
