Here is the invitation from Anne Fontaine located at the Somerset Collection in Troy, Michigan to celebrate Bastille Day in which they will be featuring my watercolor paintings from various trips to France. I am excited about this opportunity! It should be fun and interesting. If any of my followers happen to be in the area on July 14 stop by to say hello.

For those of you that have never visited Detroit or have heard all the worst possible things about it overseas, I hope to give you a different view on our city. This is an aerial view looking down upon the ice skating rink located at Campus Martius, a city center in Detroit. The city is experiencing new growth at a speed that is remarkable. It has also become a haven for artist. A lot of artists in New York City can't afford the studio space or living space anymore so they are flocking to Detroit in groves. The rent is gradually going up but for now, it is very affordable for artist to rent out space. This scene has watercolor potential.
This past weekend, I became a member of the Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors. I had been invited to join this great group of women artists in the Detroit area. by local artist, Chris Unwin. The society has been around for over 100 years. They sponsored a "tea" at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham, Michigan and this was my first time meeting with this group. Here are some pictures from the event. Along with posting my artwork on this blog, I also like to post about any creative activities that I am involved in. The tea was an elegant affair.
