Wow. I just realized that I haven't written for a month. Sorry for those of you who read my blog. Last weekend I took a body of work down to Bonner David Gallery in Scottsdale for my upcoming show on the 17th. I literally packed up all of my art in the middle of a blizzard. I was hoping for a few hours of warmth when arriving in Arizona but as rare as it is... it was cold! Just wanted to let you know that I have posted the new paintings that are a part of my show on my website. Also I am featured in an article in the January issue of American Art Collector. You can find it at Barnes and Noble or Borders under the Art section of the magazines.

Melissa, I just wanted to wish you well with your upcoming show. How exciting! Wish it was in Utah so I could see your paintings up close and personal, especially "Joy Ride". What a sweet memory of childhood. Who hasn't hopped on their bike and been transported to another world?!? I traveled over the "bumps" on my motorcylce; rode the range on my horse; flew in space in my x-wing fighter and drove at amazing speeds in my car. My bike and me could be anything we wanted. Obviously, I had a real connection with the painting. I love how the little girl is so unbothered that the world around her isn't "real"; it is definitely "real" to her and no one can tell her differently. The painting puts a smile on my face. Thanks!

Melissa, what an exciting thing to be featured in a national magazine. You are truly carving out a spot for yourself in the world! I loved Puddin Face. So cute.

Melissa--congratulations on the feature article! That is fantastic!
It was nice to see you at Trevor Southey's lecture. I thought he had some excellent points of wisdom for we painters.
We will get together sometime I am sure. I know that this economy makes for big strains on us all.
