Happy New Year!

 Hello Friends!

I am still here, just really off the blog-train.

2022 is looking hopeful to me. I hope that you all are well and finding joy and beauty, staying healthy and creative wherever you may be. For me lately walking in the forest with my dog is my respite and bliss. I am so appreciative for the many beautiful quiet woodland trails near my house...

My two daughters are both married to wonderful men as of this year and for that I am truly grateful!

For the final post of the year on the Girls Just Wanna Paint blog  I posted this painting. If you haven't visited the blog- it's really fun- we have been at it for over 12 years now and still going strong! This month's theme was "light" - These other painters are incredible!

This is called "Improvised Mayhem"20"x24", acrylic on canvas board. I painted it in a recent class at the Plymouth Center for the Arts. It's all about letting go, keeping it light and experimenting with color.

Love this quote- "Angels fly because they take themselves lightly!"

Here's to moving forward with a smile into this next year!

With Love and Cheers,

Open Studio November 7, 2021

Hello long lost friends! 

I hope you are all staying healthy as the season brings us back into fall. I am having another open studio November 7, from 12 - 5 PM., at 369 Spring Street in Marshfield. Two more local artists and friends, Laura Harvey and Cathy McCarthy, are opening up their doors as well! Addresses below.

I will be showing some large pieces I worked on this past summer, new alphabet posters, cards and the usual bargain bins! 

We will be mostly outside, but please wear a mask inside the studio. Hope to see you there!

XO, Sally

My open studio was great- did I remember to take pictures of the people? DUH! NO!

But here is the studio right at noon! Thank you to everyone who came and big hugs to you who couldnt, I know its alot to ask during this time.

 I drew the winners name yesterday for a free painting -and  the winner is MARY SHEEHAN WINN! With a name like that she can't help but WINN!

Mary is an amazing artist, she is one of the Girls Just Wanna Paint group and she is one of the reasons why I started this blog so many years ago.  Congrats Mary!

 I hope you all stay well and we are going to get through this pandemic. There is a light at the end of the tunnel! In the meantime, drink lots of tea or whatever and read books, binge on shows and do arts and crafts! Get cozy!

Open Studio and Giveaway!

 Dear Followers!

It's been a year since I posted. A year! I guess the other forms of social media have taken me away from this- but I am going to send you an invitation to my open studio next Sunday, November 15. I have been making slideshows on my youtube channel, sort of virtual bin flip through. This year I will have DEEP discounts, if you see something on the video please inquire. I know its unlikely that I'll get a crowd, and I am mandating masks and social distancing. We will have it mostly all outside. Pray for good weather!

 I hope each of you and your family are well.

If you reply to this email I will put your name in the hat for a free painting! To be revealed next week.

All the best,
