“Secret Diaries of AppleTree Hollow”
Discovery:
I will attempt to give you a very brief summary of my remarkable discovery. I recently acquired, in a family inheritance, a very remote piece of property,nestled in the hills of southern Ohio, now known as Appletree Hollow. The 180 acres(approx.) is covered in thick woods that hold deep ravines, several creeks and numerous glacial rock formations. I have been unable t…

THE SOLO EXHIBIT

Want to thank ALL of the people who came to my reception evening and those who helped to host! It was a great fun time and was great to have a chance to get to know you a little better.
Also a big thanks for ALL of those who stopped by early or after the party! There were such wonderful comments on my work and some great questions. I encourage RB members to help support these new exhibit events by “Solo Exhibition”. It is a very fun and inspiring experience and a chance to get to know other artists here on RB.

I will be stopping in on my reception occasionally this week……..so, if there are any questions or you want to check it out, Please stop in! Just click here
Again, your supportive words are really appreciated!

Wow ! Features this week!

This is my second week and I am really thrilled, amazed and inspired by the responses on my work and the features I received!
You know, when times are rough and you sit at home and work, day, after day, after day & paint,paint,paint ………. you tend to loose perspective on the big “why” in the sky thingy…the, what’s it all for, syndrome….but when you can post a painting and you get all the amazing feedback ~ I recall some of the “why” answers!!
So, a big thanks to all you wonderful people out there, who take the time to respond!!!!!!!

First Week

WOW!! I just wanted to say that this has been a GREAT first week for me on RB. I was led here by another artist and I am so glad she told me about it. I have been a member of another large art site for a very long time and I have to say it doesn’t even compare to RB!! The RB people are REALLY inviting and actually respond to work…..I have had work featured already and lots of wonderful comments from other wonderful artists…
With hard economic times, it is great to be able to see new work of others and be able to communicate……….
So, here’s a big CHEER for RB!!! Thank you ALL for being so welcoming!
