June 23 to 29, 2016, Grant-Related Activities

  • I maintained my current work schedule at All Children's Hospital, St. Anthony's Hospital, the Morean Arts Center and my studio.
  • I sent an email regarding the Creative Pinellas grant award, Sanskriti Foundation (India) residency and upcoming shows to San Francisco Art Institute, Goddard College, San Francisco State University and the Union Institute and University, where I got my teaching certification and degrees.
  • I ordered a passport in preparation for my trip to India and my residency at the Sanskriti Foundation in New Delhi.
  • I continued to work on organizing the painting retreat I’m planning on leading in Santa Fe and at Ghost Ranch, New Mexico, next summer.
  • I made plans to visit art galleries and museums on Florida’s East Coast over the July 4 long weekend; also to visit the new show at the Ringling Museum of Art as well as art galleries in Sarasota later in July.
  • I delivered a painting to the Morean Arts Center for the Members’ Show opening on Saturday, July 9, in conjunction with Art Walk in St Petersburg. The closing reception for the Members’ Show at Studio@620 (in which I have a collage) will be the same evening. 
  • I continued work on a mailing to art galleries and museums throughout the country with the goal of showing Homeland Lost and Found to a broader audience.
  • I continued work on a new painting in the Terra Firma series. So far I'm very happy with it.
  • I completed the task of reorganizing my office.

Photographs of my newly renovated home office. Paper-free desk. Yeah!

There's even a nook for my cat!

I'm loving all my new storage.

More storage! I love that everything's tucked away behind closed doors finally, and dust free!
