I'm working the gallery (Susan Carlin's Art Studio and Gallery) this beautiful Spring-like San Antonio, Texas Saturday. The sun is shining, it's 70 degrees, and the wind is blowing the dry leaves around.
There are three artists represented here: my sister Susan, Bonnie Mann and me. We all have original paintings, prints and cards for sale.
A happily "just engaged" couple from Albuquerque, New Mexico came in this morning and took away one of my Arneson River Theater prints as a souvenir. Lots of happy people out roaming the river today.

I dropped my son Lyle at the Airport this morning. He is off to Los Angeles to meet up with his band, The Faceless, and then they're off to Europe for a five week tour.
What does this have to do with art? Being a part of my children's lives is the most creative thing I've ever done. I didn't paint a thing over the holidays but I did take some reference pictures.
One of the most important things I did this holiday season was to connected with some old and new friends. I was reminded that the essence of me is music. So besides painting, going to school full-time this Spring, I'll be playing the piano and remembering that I'm a songwriter.
Here is wishing everyone a wonderful new year filled with events that alter and illuminate our lives.
