Aboriginal Art

In the foyer of Regina and Gordon Newell's home is a framed Aboriginal painting from a vacation to Australia.

I have always been attracted to Aboriginal art because I love dots! It is the graffiti of the native tribes of Austraila.

Rock On With Your Bad Self Oprah

25 years ago I saw Oprah on the Tonight Show. I think Joan Rivers was the host. They were having so much fun together I knew I would have to find out more about this Oprah. Then I caught the first Oprah Winfrey show and she was in my studio from 4-5 Monday thru Friday. Oprah never missed a day. She has been my friend and coworker ever since. Julia Robert's said one time that Oprah is everyone's girlfriend. This is so true. In fact I talked about Oprah to my other girlfriends so much that they thought I knew someone else named Oprah.

If I had written to her every time she inspired me and completely changed my perception and life....I would have been on some "stalker" list in Harpo Studios.

Five years ago there were rumors that she wanted to end her show. Thankfully, she waited 5 more years till I had time to prepare for the loss.

The final shows included surprise tributes! Oprah can you even be more awesome than even I thought??? YES!!! I didn't know about all the men you sent to college. You have left a handprint on my heart!

Happy Mother's Day!

Derby and Mother's Day the same weekend! Had a wonderful brunch with my parents. Mom hope you had a great rest of the day!

I am working my fingers off getting ready for two upcoming shows. Until now horses were my focus. Now on to other things.....

Art In The Arbor is this upcoming weekend. May 14 and 15 @ Thomas Jefferson Unitarian Church, Louisville, KY. Most of you will recognize this Show as a tribute to mom...but every 7 years there is a disruption to this plan.

The Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen will be in Bowling Green Kentucky May 21 and 22 @ The Sloan Convention Center. This show is always fun because I reside with the Newells and some of my college girlfriends will be there for a reunion of sorts. We are all staying at Casa-Newell.
