Listen to me...

Rumi wrote "Listen to me...for one quiet moment quit being sad...Hear the blessings dropping their blossoms around us. " Today as I prepare for Hayley's first art opening and delivering the postcards to other galleries and specific locations on the downtown square to celebrate Final Fridays Art Walk for August 2010. The weather should be spectacular and a full Harvest moon also know as a Sturgeon Moon will light our path as we casually stroll around our court house square. The Chop House is all bright and shiny and very near its grand opening... in fact there is a fund raiser tonight for our theater...The Midland Theater.

Hayley's exhibit is opening from 6 to 8 pm at the Whispers and Echoes Studio located at 50 South Second Street in the Works across from The Grill. Hayley has volunteered this summer in both of my week long art workshops and I am very proud to share her paintings with our community. There are titles that will give you some clues but Hayley deliberately hides messages and metaphors in her compositions and at her very young age she has begun mastery of her stylized brush strokes. The Final Friday Art Walk is a wonderful family experience so come downtown and discover the talents that are being developed here in our hometown.

  1. "...for one quiet moment quit being sad.." - I love it!

  2. What a wonderful quote! Are these Haley's pieces? Very intriguing!

  3. Lovely quote...I love Rumi! Sounds like you've been very busy. I gave your blog URL to my brother's girlfriend. I wanted her to see examples of your work since she makes quilts...been trying to get her to think outside the box as far as quilting. She's a traditionalist and does beautiful work, but I think she could do something more in the line of fibre art, but she's resistant. I even offered for us to do a collaborative piece, but she knows my wild side and I guess she's not too thrilled about moving outside her comfort zone. Perhaps if she sees what you do, maybe she'll think about it. Oh well, one can only hope.

    Have a wonderful weekend and take care.


  4. Have a wonderful open house. Enjoy your weekend. I know Haley will be so excited and proud of her work and the evening. Eat a cookie for me, ok?
