Dreams Into Action

follow your dreams...

My Virtual Vernissage has been quite a success, with lots of wonderful feedback. It seems my extraordinarily reinvented website is a hit! I'm already working on new pages to add, such as Featured Work where I go into detail about specific pieces of art in pictures and words.

One of the wonderful responses to the new site is that Seth Apter of The Altered Page has added Holly Dean to his sidebar list of Favorite Destinations! I am so honoured. Seth has just celebrated the fourth year anniversary of his amazing blog. He has been raising awareness in the online artists' community all this time - connecting artists, sharing information, showing his own art and other's. His blog is not to be missed!

I'm also excited to be taking another online class with Julie Prichard and Chris Cozen. Layer Love v2.0 is right up my alley and these new techniques will be explored more fully in the two new paintings I am working on...

The theme for my new work is "Everyday Patterns"... quite intriguing. I am playing in my journal with the idea of combining decorative patterns with behavioural patterns. How will this come together, you ask? Through the delightful discovery process of creating the work. I can't wait to see what evolves.

There is still plenty of time to see my most recent painting, "Weaveworld" at the OMMA Exhibit, WOVEN, which continues at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum in Almonte, ON until September 3. Find more details here.

Must get back to the studio now. Have a creative day, everyone!
