"Shindig at Frames on Main.."

Me and Bobby McG….I mean Shiflet…:) Friday night in Paris at the artwalk was a blast–per usual. Bobby is the owner of Frames on Main and an incredible photographer as well as an awesome host. I know Bobby likes me ’cause he is letting me have two workshops at his place, again…after we crowded him out of his own space last year! I got to see old friends and made new ones.

Artist Mary Louise Dean and her hubby, Woody, with owner Bobby the Great.

Some sweet music was made by the likes of Dale Pyatt (aka “Greasy Chicken”). Original songs with distinct country bluegrass flair, hot pickin’, mandolin madness!

Here I am chatting it up with new friend, Kathy Werking. Kathy is Kentucky Green and had beautiful artful jewelry along with Bourbon and Mint Julep Handmade Soaps (I got both!)

When you put art, music, food and people together—you always have a winning combination!

I just put together No. 13 of my email newsletters. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can

click here and do so now. Signing up automatically puts your name in the drawing each month for a chance to win one of my petite paintings. I am heading to California this week–who knows what I will get into. But you can bet I will tell all in my blog..:)

Also, I now have a “like” page (as opposed to “crazy about this person” page) on Facebook. I have started some discussion there and would love to hear your thoughts. The one I have up at the moment is this: “What is the biggest limiting thought you have concerning your ability to be a successful artist?” Search under The Art of Dreama Tolle Perry on Facebook. Or you can comment on the blog as well, if you like.

Well, off to the studio. Remember paint always dries as to where it is located and how quickly you need it to dry. On palette in big globs…will dry overnight. Needing thin coat on painting to dry for show……weeks into months. I really think oil paint is alive and has a perverse sense of humor, just like Eddie.

    Great seeing you and your artwork in action. I just “liked” your page. Perhaps Eddie needs a Like page as well? Just thinking he might stir up some interesting discussions.ReplyCancel
