JCML has Gone Live!

A lot has happened over the last few weeks.

I finished the semester at SMSU, and I aced all my classes. 3.89 GPA? Why, thank you! Yes, yes. I do deserve a cookie. Oh, you think I need a week away on a lovely sunny beach to paint and relax with loads of books? Well, it so happens that I am doing both. Next week I am travelling to Folkstone on Monday, and I won't be back until next Friday. (Now, let's just hope the weather cooperates with my painterly plans. If the weather doesn't play the game, we may switch our dates to a later, more sunny opportunity.) My husband and I going to celebrate my hard work and a well-done job. I am totes'mah-goats excited.

So, this is happening in Folkstone later in the year, but... incase you are interested here is a cool link to some arts around Folkstone:

Below are a few pictures from this quaint little town. Hope to find simlar spots and sit for a bit before a brew and later a canvass. 

Plus, I also bought sushi, which in my opinion, is like cookies for adults the first week of May- when the school year ended for this semester. ( I return this coming fall for my next foray into my education advancement adventure.

Here is my local "cookie" maker. Give Yo Sushi a try, its a nice little spot to hang with friends and try new things ala carte. If you see me there in Watford, be sure to say hi, hello. 

But for now, it's time to find a place to display my art. In my apartment complex, one of my neighbours modelled for me. He also put my name in a hat to show my work for all the Cassio Metro Residents to see. This opportunity is exhilarating because I have not been able to show my work in a public space since the pandemic. I am currently getting the framing ready for my pieces. I am planing an opening show, dates Cassio metro will display my art. But before all that happens, I need to reveal my art portfolio to the residential board for approval and generally get things ready, so it's a safe and fun time for my neighbourhood of approximately 1300 people. To put that in perspective, that's like ten per cent of my home town Marshall MN, all in one apartment complex.

Pictured below is Cassio Metro estate, or well, part of it any way. I live in the building to the left just out of sight of the picture frame. Its lovely little spot, and I enjoy how close it's to Cassiobury Park. I am only five mutes from tube train ride or plein air painting in the park. 

When the above has a date, and if it's open to the public. I will mention it here and on my Instagram. Just in case you are interested in meeting me and seeing some of this stuff in person.
