Salem Arts Festival

Salem Arts Festival 2019

Woohoo! 9 months ago today i was driving our Kia Soul with 2 cats and a dog in the back, following my husband who was maneuvering a U-Haul with all of our belongings on our way back to Salem MA. It took about 13 hours and OH Aunty Em... there is no place like home!

So apropos that this weekend is the Salem Arts Festival. My muse is so happy to be back in Salem. ... so happy that she urged me to join the Salem Arts Association

It is so much easier to create here in Salem than it was in muggle-ville Alexandria VA! Being surrounded by water, magic and a touch of the absurd tonifies my soul. I am so grateful to be back.

Last night was the opening reception of the Salon Des Refuses exhibit. Two of my spirit dolls are happily residing at the gallery surrounded by amazing art. I tried to photograph them but, spirits hate that sort of thing. Maybe my photographer husband can pull off a few decent pics for the website, blog and Facebook page.

Today i will be volunteering at the Salem Arts Association booth in Derby Square near Old Town Hall. It will be great people watching and hope to see some familiar faces and old friends.

We are in the process of changing the name of our online shoppe Whispers of the O'Fae to Practical Magic Salem. Too many folks were complaining that it was confusing and couldn't figure out how to spell O'Fae! Meanwhile, the links are still the same.

Salon Des Refuses Exhibit

I am happy to announce that two of my Spirit Doll pieces, Dances With Sticks and I've Heard the Mermaids Singing will be at the Salon Des Refuses Exhibit at the Salem Art Gallery!

Unfortunately i do not have photos of these pieces as this was a last minute decision to enter the show. I will be photographing these at the opening on Friday June 7, 2019. All are invited.

This is my first formal art show since moving from Alexandria VA where i regularly had pieces at the Del Ray Artisans Gallery in Del Ray, Alexandria VA. Good to get back into the groove of making art again.

    Vitamin Sea and Sunshine!

    It has been raining and chilly most of the past week. The sun finally made a guest appearance today and our temp hit around 60 degrees. Woohoo it's a heat wave here in Salem MA!

    To celebrate we went to our favorite beach, Waikiki Beach on Winter Island in Salem MA. 

    The seagulls on Winter Island have a sense of humor and are very brave. 

    While we were sitting on the rocks soaking up sunshine, two ducks waddled up to us, checked us out and decided it was safe for them to sit beside us for a bit. Very sweet. They eventually left when a woman roaming the beach walked to close while picking up seashells. 

    And a white egret flew over by the rocks, stayed a bit then flew off. Magical!
