Carnival of Animals

Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue in New York City unveils their 2011 Holiday Windows.

The windows all have an animal theme and are far beyond the imagination in execution. I would love to be on the creative team that designs these windows! 
Make sure you watch the heartwarming video as sweet.

Now I want to hop a train and see the windows in person... hmm..... maybe!

I hope your Christmas was all you hoped it would be. :o)

I love this little guy. ... If you look at some of my fantasy graphics you will see him swimming around in some unlikely places.

Have a great weekend!

Time to Breathe

The Wallkill River School show was a smashing success as it is every year. The gallery in Poughkeepsie  got 4 of the 6 pieces intended for them so I think my obligations are fulfilled to the best of my ability these days. Whew!
It's a wonderful thing not to have to create something but to do it because you are totally inspired and gung ho to do it for yourself, which is where I am now. Yesterday I decided to put my new skills from the Richard Salley class to work and I must say it's getting pretty exciting. I wish I'd thought to photograph as I went along but I got totally obsessed with the project. I will post a picture when it's complete.

In the meantime, if you're not aware of it, Richard Salley and wife Jane will be featured in an amazing week long workshop in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico January 22-28. Here is the link to read all of the details. Puerto Vallarta Artist Retreat. I have no doubt that you would come away totally tanned and filled with new skills. I'm thinkin' the Sunday cocktail reception won't be such a bad thing either!

Whew! I'm actually ready!

Today is the annual Wallkill River School Holiday Bazaar and the Biffs are part of it. We've been working non-stop for weeks to get ready and we did it!

Those of you who do shows know how it is...  do I have enough?... is there too much? .. how to display it to its best advantage?... what sort of people are buying?.... how do I price this?... etc. etc. etc. It can be very stressful and there is no science to it.. ya just wing it the best you can.

So..  the Wallkill River School Holiday Bazaar starts at noon and ends at 7pm during which time there will be a members reception as well. It's located in the beautiful old Patchett House on Route 17K in Montgomery, N.Y. If you are in the area I hope you'll stop by and say hello.

Off we go!
