Socialite - Oil on Canvas - 11 x 14
Well I guess it's time to come out of hibernation now that the weather is starting to warm up and really kick into gear with the painting!  (I know I should have been painting more, not less, but you know how it goes :P)

But I haven't been completely lazy, I have been painting a bit.  And I'm happy to announce that my painting above came in third place in the Village Fine Arts Association's Poetry Art Night.  The poem (written by me:) that accompanied the painting also won third place, so I am pleased and honored.

The show will be up at the Suzanne Haskew Arts Center (SHAC) for a month, then it will travel to the Milford Township Library for another month.  The reception is this Saturday, March 11 at the SHAC starting at 6 pm.  There will be food, drinks, art and poetry readings... always a fun night! (P.S. you will have to come to the SHAC to read the poem!)


  1. Welcome back and congratulations on your award, Candace! Well deserved!
    I would love to attend the reception, but would have a 36 hour drive (living in Eugene, OR now. Our workshop instructor lives here, too - somewhere...) Anyhow, hope you take some photos & post them on your blog. Hope you post the poem later, too.
    Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful artwork!!

    1. Thank you so much Chris! Yeah, I wouldn't expect you to come all the way from OR :) But I appreciate all of your nice comments. I will try to get some picks at the reception to post.

  2. Hi Candace, what a beautiful and intriguing painting! Boy I would love to go to the reception, but I'll be on my yearly trip with my daughter....but I will get over to see the painting at some point! Glad to see you painting-the world is a better place when your artwork is in it:)

    1. Thank you Laurie, you are so kind. Enjoy your trip - hope you are having a marvelous time :)
