Already An Amazing Summer... And It's Only Just Begun

Dear Friends,

Happy Summer!

I hope you all are finding time to enjoy these long, warm days with family and friends, as well as balance out all the fun with a little rest and relaxation.

My summer is already busy - in the BEST sort of way - and I have much more to share as the season progresses.  My summer unofficially kicked off with the annual Vermont Womenpreneurs Summit . This was my third year in attendance and my second year as a sponsor and as always, I had a wonderful time. I came away from the event truly inspired and bursting with ideas for new art in celebration of The Feminine. The event was held at the Old Lantern Inn & Barn ... a truly gorgeous venue. In fact, I plan to return later this year for a few days in solitude, writing and creating art.  It's the perfect place for a solo artist's retreat!

I saw many old friends and made many new ones. So much creative energy in one room - over 250 Womenpreneurs! - makes for an amazingly magical experience. I CAN'T WAIT to see what the Summit has in store for me next year!

Following the Summit, I was honored to be chosen as a special guest artist at the Chaffee Art Center in Rutland, Vermont as they hosted the June mixer for the Chamber and Economic Development of the Rutland Region . Several artists were asked to be present and give a live demo and informal discussion of their work. There were so many in attendance and I was thrilled to be able to speak with almost all of them. Many are artists themselves and I am always so curious and eager to hear other artists discuss their passion and technique for their work.
The Rutland Herald was there to take pictures and provide an article on the event... Thank you, Rutland Herald!
The event coincided with the Chaffee's latest show, "Art... The Equalizer", a theme promoting originality, diversity, and inclusivity. I am thrilled and honored to have artwork in this show.
I am so fortunate to have had these amazing opportunities to kick off my Summer. Thank you for being here and sharing this experience with me.
More updates soon, My Friends. Until then, BE WELL.
XOXO
Heather
