Exciting News

Two exciting pieces of news I would like to share with everyone. First, I was interviewed by a new website called Neoteric Art. The site was started by a friend of mine and I am very flattered that he asked me to participate. He asked some tough questions and they were fun to answer. Just follow the link over to check it out.

Second, the dandelions are here! Serendipitous moments happen to me all the time! I have long awaited these beauties and I can't believe they decided to pop up today. Weed to most, but to me it is the first glorious color after the long winter. Right now they are just dots here and there along the lake front, but soon it will be a sea of gold!

Wow, read your interview. You express your thoughts and intentions exceptionally well. Very interesting read.

Dandelions? Sweetie, you are SO garden deprived! I won't even tell you what I planted in my veggie garden today. But I did pull up a couple of dandelions.

Karen, you are insightful and eloquent. I love your work. And I have an affection for dandelions too. They make a wonderful dye for silk.

Thank you dar presto! I am finding out all manner of things to do with dandelions since I began this painting. I had no idea the dandelion had so many uses. The things we learn just by painting a painting.
