sculpture update - painting workshop - and our house is going to be on the home tour!

My relief sculpture is almost finished. Here is the bird that sits on the fence. I'll post one more picture with the finished piece, then comes the tedious part, letting it dry very slowly so nothing cracks!

Calling all painters!

Carolina Creations is hosting a plein air painting workshop with Mike Rooney May 13 & 14 from 9-5 pm. Cost is $150. We'll be painting on site in beautiful Downtown New Bern.

You may have seen Mikes work in our gallery. His loose, impressionistic style gives his work a lot of excitement.

Our House & Studio
is going to be on the
Spring Home and Garden Tour!

Many friends of ours we've met through Carolina Creations have seen our home and studio being constructed (because it's just one block from our gallery) and have asked to see it. Well we're fortunate that we've met A LOT of wonderful people but since there are A LOT of people that have said they want to see our home we decided that a good way to do it was to have it be on the home tour.

We're still doing some work on it, some will be done & some won't. We hope the sculpture I've been talking about here in this blog will be hanging right outside our door. I doubt that I'll have the back splash finished but most everything else will be done.

During the home tour Michael and I will be working in our studio, Michael throwing pots and I'll be decorating them, working on a sculpture or making tiles. Who knows maybe I'll be painting a picture part of the time. Then on the evening of April 11 we'll have a reception at Carolina Creations for everyone on the tour with refreshments, harp music by Joyce Kell and Jim Bisbee will be there doing a demonstration.

You can purchase tickets at the Historical Society, Click here for more info http://www.newbernhistorical.org/springtour.html

I am also pleased that one of my wall hangings has been used as the arwork for the home tour. We'll hope you come!
