Our Artist Gathering 2010!

This past weekend was a weekend I will never ever forget. The opportunity to be in the same place at the same time with all of my creative friends was overwhelming. I still can't believe it happened and I keep smiling as I recall conversations and silly moments and hugs.

Thank you to John Sloan and his wife Maryann, Ellen and Bill Stouffer, Shelly Reeves Smith, Sueellen Ross, Nita Showers, Eric Fausnacht, Rena Askey, Amy Faldet, Sherri Buck Baldwin, Yvonne Moroni, Ned and Melanie Young, Paula Joerling, Seth Roth, Darcey Roth, David Simmons , and Robin Davis! For taking time away from your work and your families to meet here.
Thank you to Cathleen and Carlos from Legacy Publishing and Philp, Raymond and Angela from Sunset Vista Designs for travelling here to meet with all of us!
A gathering of creative friends!
a yummy salad!

A sit down together we won't forget!!

The sunset over the farm that evening! Beautiful!

Our guests enjoyed meeting all of our animals on the farm.
Paula Joerling has some followers after feeding the goats some pumpkin and squash. They loved her!!
Our dog Ruthie on the porch of the log cabin.
One of our heirloom turkeys was nestled on a dozen eggs.

Robin Davis took this beautiful shot of the eggs.

Artist Licensing Event

I'm looking forward to November 5th and 6th when 28 talented artists and friends arrive for our Licensing event!

John Sloan and his wife Maryann, Ellen and Bill Stouffer, Shelly Reeves Smith, Sueellen Ross, Nita Showers, Eric Fausnacht, Rena Askey, Amy Faldet, Sherri Buck Baldwin, Yvonne Moroni, Ned and Melanie Young, Robin Davis, Paula Joerling, Jamey Berger and myself will meet at a local cafe for dinner on Friday night. On Saturday, we welcome the Team from Legacy Publishing, Cathleen and Carlos Llanso as well as the team from Sunset Vista Designs, Philip Wong, Raymond Chan and Angela Reinhardt. We will present portfolios, learn about social media from Robin Davis and have a fabulous day!

This is the first time our entire group will meet in one place at one time! I don't know how we can possibly squeeze any more talent into one room!
Our group formed when I resigned as Creative Director of LANG several years ago. We support each other in licensing, networking and friendship. I can't imagine doing it alone... these are extraordinary, amazing, talented friends!
I can't wait!!! I promise to post lots of pictures from the event!
