In Blogging Land, I am going back & starting up with my "Stories about the Paintings" Series again. I just wrote about the above image--"Clyde" and that story was published on a website written by artist Heidi Van Impe, who is a new friend and one of my fellow Gold Mastermind members (see below) Heidi is currently working on the illustrations for a children's book called "The Great Crow Party"--and as part of this endeavor, she has invited people to share their crow stories. You can see the "Clyde" story and Heidi's Crow Party website HERE. And be sure to click on her blog to see her great videos of her Crow collages for the book.

January was not only the start of a new year, but also the start of new associations & friendships, business coaching programs and big plans for 2011. The photo above is of my Gold Mastermind group at an Uplevel Your Business conference in Asheville, NC with coach extraordinaire Christine Kane. Our group is multi-talented and overflowing with wisdom, experience and enthusiasm and committed to helping each other attain our goals. This is a year long program, which includes several of these "live" conferences, as well as webinars, teleseminars and online forums. I am SO glad I signed up for this---Christine is an incredible mentor and our group is fabulous!

I also participated in the "Smartist" Teleseminar, which was a week long teleseminar , created by Ariane Goodwin. It is a fountain of business and marketing information for artists with 13 speakers presenting on all different aspects of the art biz. I am still going through all the information and trying to absorb it all.
