Art Takes Time Square!!!

Last month I had the pleasure of participating in an interesting art event, Art takes Times Square, hosted by "Artist Wanted”. Artists from all over the world put up art portfolios on the web. They were then judged by the public and Artist Wanted, and those who received enough votes were chosen to exhibit their art in Times Square. Here is a video of the event and winner, Vicki DaSilva
 It was an incredible experience for me. I hadn’t been to NY in 20 years, and this was my first time traveling by myself without my kids! So just being there was amazing….I lived and breathed art for 10 days. The event itself was a celebration of art and artist. Artist from all over the world, standing together, watching our art on huge screens in Times Square New York! It was an amazing feeling. Here is my painting up on the big screen-
I then spent the next week trying to see as much art and museums as possible, spent time with old friends and family, and came home refreshed and inspired! I will be sharing some of the amazing art I got to experience with you in the next few blogs….I have also started a new painting and look forward to sharing it with you all when it’s finished.
 Thank you to everyone that has written to me lately about my blog. I am truly touched to get such beautiful letters from such inspiring people and am thrilled that my art may inspire others. I know there are artists that just paint and don’t think about what people will think or feel when looking at their art; but I am not like that. My art is my way of connecting. Connecting to myself, and the world around me. So if my art touches you, I would love to hear! And feel free to write your beautiful words on this site as well, so that others can be inspired by you! Thank you again. And till next week…..
