New Art Connections............



Love, love, love this tree.  It sits just down the road from my kids old elementary school and everytime I drive by I always wish I'd had my camera.  I've been playing around with ideas for how I'm going to put it into a piece so I think come tomorrow I'll have things cleaned up enough in the studio to begin.


Saturday I was checking out one of my fav sites which is Art Interiors, a gallery in Toronto that I simply love, when I came across an artist's work that really resonated with me.  Found her website and then her blog and dropped her an email.  If I come across an artist's work that I really like I always email them. Maybe I'll get an email back or maybe I won't but that's not the important part..... I personally feel that I want to express my appreciation and enjoyment of their work... just another quirkly little thing with me.  Her name is Rita Vindedzis and she did send me back a great email after reading some of my blog and we couldn't get over how much we have in common....both have teenagers, both in the arts, both are cat people, like Starbucks, live in Toronto (she does, my hometown) and strangely enough...have both had our work on Cityline.  Weird how things sometimes sync up like that.  Check out her blog..it's a good one.

Thanks so much for this nice post Melody!! Check my blog :-) It was wonderful meeting you through email and hopefully we can get together in person and have a long chat while enjoying a Starbucks. Your art is beautiful.

I love stories like this! And just yesterday I took a photo of a cool tree in my neighbourhood, too. I do the same thing and if I have my camera with me, so much the better!

Thanks Rita...it was such a pleasure chatting with you via email as well....let's hit Starbucks soon.

Andrea...I can't tell how many other wonderful artists (like yourself) that I've met online....

Hi Melody,
Love the tree and your sky painting.
Thanks for the link to Ritas work.
When I read your posts I wish I was in your town to meet for coffee!
You realize how big the world is when they can't fly areoplanes!!

So many times I have wished that we lived closer Michaela...there would be so much to talk about. Maybe one day I'll make that flight across the ocean
