Art on the Commons, one of Ohio's finest art festivals, was the scene in Kettering, Ohio, featuring artists from across the country exhibiting and selling their art. The 90 degree plus temperature, heat and scorching humidity did not prevent art enthusiasts, friends, family and patrons from venturing out and enjoying the day's events with live music, food and art. Several purchases were made of fine art paintings consisting of wild life, abstract and mixed media from artists displaying their creativity, with pottery and jewelry being number one sellers. It was a wonderful day not only celebrating color, texture and shapes every where you could see, but connecting with family, friends andvenew acquaintances

In the week long workshop at the 2009 Calligraphy Conference one of the exercises was to section a sheet of black Arches text wove into 6 different grids. The paper was then enhanced with different marks by utilizing a variety of writing instruments. It was made into a decorative box to hold our Book of Days.

A one day workshop in May on the beautiful grounds of TransfigurationCenter for Spiritual Renewal, Ludlow Falls, Ohio, was the gathering of artists, therapists and college minister. The morning was spent doing stream of consciousness writing about a significant event in life and then followed with an exercise, whereby words were pulled from the story to create poetry. Painted watercolor paper was used to receive the creative words. Later in the morning time was spent doing meditation/drawing as an exercise in mindfulness. After lunch we gathered to create a collage of our higher creative self with special materials. We gathered in a circle to talk about the grace of the day. Participants left feeling inspired, fulfilled and connected.
Creative writing exercise which later resulted into a poem on the artist's own watercolored handmade paper.
