Phase One - MAC Scarecrow
Jerry started working on our Medford Arts Center

It still needs a lot of work, but it's fun work,

Prioritize Your Passion

“Persistence. Perfection. Patience. Power.
Prioritize your passion. It keeps you sane.”
~ Criss Jami, Killosophy

I attended a wonderful three day, Marketing Boot Camp
given by Leslie Saeta in Cape Cod this week. It was so great
to experience her amazing energy and that of all the other
incredibly accomplished artists who participated.

Mesmerized -alcohol ink on Yupo

While I was gone, I sold this large 30 x 40" print on metal
to a wonderful couple who live on the coast in Delaware.
Today I got this photo and note from the happy new owners.

"I get great satisfaction in creating a visual oasis
to gaze at for a moment of peaceful escape
from the turbulent world."

My Solo Show Is Now Up At The MAC

I am so happy!
Everyone keeps telling me that the show,
 "An Evolution of Passion" 
looks really fabulous!


The exhibit opened yesterday and the time went by really quickly.
New friends and old stopped by to help, visit, get a speak peek,
 bring flowers, buy some art and in general, wish us luck.


When I envisioned the show, I knew it would be the biggest collection 
of Sandy Sandy Art ever displayed in one location.
(Several have already "left the building", lol.)


Thinking conservatively, cautiously I told people that 
"there would be over 100 original paintings on display".

Little did I realize, until after two days of set up, that there are
well over 400 original pieces of my art on display and for sale.
WOW! That was a shocker! 

Find out more about the show:

A Happy Talent

"It is a happy talent to know how to play."
 ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


"The very essence of playfulness is an openness 
to anything that may happen, 
the feeling that whatever happens, it's okay. 
 You're either free to play, or you're not."
 ~ John Cleese

I'm really looking forward to our "play"shop tomorrow!
