Auspicious Beginning

Nursery Rhyme
Thank you, Pacific Northwest! Being named a winner of the City of SeaTac's annual Photo/Art Exhibit after only a month as a resident of Seattle, is really encouraging. Not only is my Nursery Rhyme a winner in the contest, but they are acquiring it for the city’s art collection. Plus I am invited to accept the “purchase award” from the mayor at City Hall and present the meaning behind my work....

My childhood was rich in ways that matter. The little girl on those eggs in the nest was me. My parents encouraged me always to express myself as an independent, thinking, creative being, and embraced my love of the arts. A seminal activity in my early years was hearing and reading stories –beginning with nursery rhymes, fairy tales and family history. I think my creative fantasy began there, nurtured by the warmth of acceptance and stimulation. I wish the same for every child, and challenge all of us to be mentors and champions for all children.

Needless to say, I am pleased as punch about this positive reception by the Pacific Northwest as I settle into this community. One of the reasons I am excited to move here is because this area embraces the arts and artists in a big way. If you are a regular reader of GardenPoet, you will probably start to notice a renewal in my commitment to writing about local arts, simply because the scene here is strongly compelling. 

As a start, let me invite you to the City of SeaTac Photo Exhibit, which has already started and runs through October 28. You can find it at City Hall, 4800 South 188th Street, SeaTac, first and third floors, weekdays, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.
 If you wish to have a limited-edition print of Nursery Rhyme hanging on your wall as a daily reminder of these tenets, it is available as a pigment print on archival paper, titled, numbered and signed, ready for your favorite framing. I check each print personally to make sure the color and quality is the best. Sizes and pricing (includes first class shipping in an art tube): 
10" x 10" image on 11" x 17" stock, $310; 
12" x 12" image on 13" x 19" stock, $410;
