Once upon a time, I imagined sharing Fearless Abstract Painting with the entire world! I honestly believe that my inspiration was a divine gift, and it's just too damn cool (and important) to keep to myself. A huge "Thank You" to my talented colleague & friend, Rae Broyles for helping me spread the good news of Fearless Abstract Painting with the world. Catch her in her beautiful studio near Atlanta, Georgia on May 3 & 4, 2018
Question: "Hey Sam, I’m interested in how to sign a painting, I usually sign my last name in sharpie in the bottom right corner. I’m not in love with my signature. I’ve tried many variations. I m curious how you sign a triptych.... do you sign them all or just one? Thoughts about signing the side canvas?"
I am extremely honored to have been chosen to contribute one of my paintings to support the DMAC's (Donkey Mill Art Center) 11th Annual Art Auction at BMW Hawaii in Kailua-Kona. The auction provides a rare opportunity for art enthusiasts and patrons to access a wide range of works by renowned artists while enjoying a celebratory evening in a beautiful venue. As a token of light, hope & renewal, each artist was given a kukui nut lei to wear during the event.
Sometimes your dreams gather an unprecedented momentum. What can a girl do besides thank her lucky stars and go with the flow?! After 21 days of travelling and teaching abroad, I arrived in Hawaii and taught 2 days of Fearless Abstract Painting for adults & keikis (kids) at the exclusive Kukio Golf & Beach Club in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. I am honored. Truly, this is what painting in paradise looks like.
At the beginning of February, I taught a Sold Out workshop at the Sonoma Community Center. The workshop was a huge success, so I was asked to come back and teach a second workshop. I was more than happy to do so. I found Sonoma extremely welcoming, full of smiles, friendship, gratitude, stunning vistas, delicious foods and an abundance of locally grown wines to enjoy.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
