The Meeting Room Series
I love my meeting rooms. It's where important things happen and where important things are said. It's where I get to listen to my own voice. I first noticed the meeting room when I told my young friend to look into my eyes because I had something to say to him. I told him what he meant to me and that I would always love him no matter what ever happened. He died within 2 weeks. Where are the meeting rooms in your life where you say important things?

Messages of Truth
Waking from slumber
I gather thoughts as flowers
That love and yield peace.

Harps of Grace playing their Christmas Concert
Inside the beautiful St. Leonard's in Centerville, Ohio
Art isn't necessarily what I paint, write, create or craft. There is an art to living that requires attention and intention. It is in the everyday musings and happenings that make me notice my thoughts and feelings. There is an art to how I respond.
Tonight I traveled to listen to the beautiful sounds of harps. There is a group of local harpists in Dayton who have a desire to play and perform together. It was very obvious what their intention was this evening. They call themselves Harps of Grace.
As I drove home I was thinking about the gift of sounds and all 'sounds around' from soft winds swirling, music playing on the radio, the laughter of children, words that give sound to voice, heels clicking on the pavement and on and on. I thought of all the sounds I take for granted, but tonight I gave my attention to the beautiful sound of harps and my intention was to be grateful for this particular sound.

Waterfalls and lily pond
Artists Karen Benedetti and Rosie Huart delivered art work today for an upcoming art exhibit at Gallery St. John at Mount St. John/Bergamo in Dayton, Ohio, titled Gallery Artists & Friends.
The grounds at Bergamo were very inviting as Karen and Rosie veered off the gallery path and found a secluded grotto made of imported stone from France. The whisperings of nature, with its trickling of waterfalls, a lily pond, and the singing of cardinals stilled their minds for a few moments as they sat and enveloped the calm and serenity...maybe gathering inspiration for their next paintings.
The exhibition is a group show with paintings, pottery, mosaics, prints, reliefs, photography and collages and will be open Wednesdays through Sundays beginning Septemer 16, 2009, to October 11, 2009, from 12-4 PM. An artists' reception is Sunday, October 11, 2009, from 1-4 PM. It is free and open to the public.

Town & Country Fine Art Center in Kettering, Ohio, celebrated its 6th Annual Beach Party with the theme "It's 5 o'clock Somewhere" Friday evening with art, Jimmy Buffet music, food and margaritas. The splash began at 5 o'clock with artists, supporting patrons, family and friends saying good-bye to the lazy days of summer. Demonstrations by artists were an exciting part of the evening's get together. A "Carribean Blue" exhibition displayed member's art in abstract and realistic representations. The show can be seen until August 31st. Food was generously donated from fine restaurants as Flemings, Figilo's and Buffalo Wild Wings. The economy is not affecting this art world as sales were jumping and many happy faces were enjoying the festivities.
The place to have been....

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 participant's sheet of Arches black text wove paper with grid is marked for Box of Days.
