More Excitement and Opportunities.........

I am so excited to announce that I am a thankful recipient of a McKnights Foundation Grant, the purpose is for a mentorship of sorts with a very favorite artist of mine, which I am so happy that he has agreed to take part of. I will announce the name of the artist when that permission has been given.

..And also as important to me, Your Art's Desire (on Minnetonka Mills) , this past Saturday chose a new selection of 11 paintings......

...AND most importantly...I thought being that this week is Thanksgiving, I would say Thankyou once again, to all who have supported my work, be it thru advise, feedback, and/or purchases. I could not do this with out you! Thankyou!- and a Wonderful Holiday Season To All! .....Kayleen
