“Art is the river that runs through my life. I drink from it as often
as I can to refresh myself.”
– Loretta Marvel
Settling down after the whirlwind of two openings in the past two weeks. I am trying to regroup and replenish and I find that the summer heat is just making things a move a little slower right now. I always find that Art is the river that runs through my life – a constant that grows wider and deeper. Sometimes it rages and sometimes it just sort of slowly drifts along.
The opening at Gallery KH in Chicago coincided with a freak rainstorm that dumped 7 plus inches on the city – creating real rivers in unexpected places! Fortunately most of the rain fell well after the opening.
I was thrilled to see my work hung alongside the work of Charlotte Foust, it is an exciting mix of abstract paintings. I love the surprise of walking into the gallery and seeing the show for the first time!
In 3 weeks I will travel again to participate in the Saratoga Arts Celebration at the National Museum of Dance. I am looking forward to visiting this area. My fall festival schedule begins in September and there is much to prepare for, but for the moment, a little rest is on my list…
