The Wall Revisited: Art by Snowlight

The shining Georgia sun inspired me to take a snow pic today. I am also creating “the wall” for my next show. I’m trying to narrow it down to my most romantic pieces for a Valentine’s Day theme.

I’m excited to announce that this time I’m getting ready for the Grand Opening at my own gallery space.

Look how big these windows are!

I will be sharing the new gallery, the Art Forum at DuPre’s Antique Market, with 10 other fabulously talented artists. Here’s a sneak peek inside while we get things ready.

These movable partitions are nifty!

Owner Mike Barie shows us the "stage," where we can create art while on display.

My spot, 3rd one in along the wall.

I wish all my Cafe Crem friends could be here! I’ll try to keep y’all up-to-date with plenty of photos. I posted a few outdoor pics at my other blog. Thank you everyone for all your support. I love you guys!

Happy Valentine’s Day, Everybody!

This needlepoint has seen many February 14th’s. I worked this piece almost 20 years ago when my main form of creating art was with a needle pulling thread. In this case the fibre is wool. I had the finished canvas mounted with a coordinated colour fabric behind it and then framed.

Happy Valentine’s Evening!

Kissing under the…


People rarely notice this little plant, because it tends to grow up high. We see it at Christmas and kiss under it, and then forget it for the rest of the year.

I spotted this fabulous crop on a high tree in Cambridge Botanical gardens today as we walked past.

For reasons of censorship, you can’t see us having a snog underneath it but that’s probably just as well.

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone with much love from us here in the East of England.. though that blue sky is worthy of a Greek island!

A Heart Beat

With Valentine’s day on the horizon, the wonderful Miki bought this overgrown boy the perfect toy as a Valentine’s gift – An electronic drumpad set that fits snugly into my studio and interfaces with my sound modules, allowing me to play “live” beats onto my songs. This is so great for me, not only because it allows me much greater freedom when recording, but also because I started my musical career on the drums at the tender age of 8.

Happy Valentine’s to my Friends

Visions of Valentines and Love

Visions of Valentines and Love


   Inspired by Viv and her poem about love, I decided to share this photo with you. It’s in keeping with the theme everywhere this week as we lead up to February 14th. Not everyone appreciates or celebrates the day, but I hope you enjoy the photo.

   We saw this wall display in a mask maker’s shop in Florence. It was too big and delicate to bring home, so I brought back this photo instead. Captured through glass to his window display. December, 2006.
