Wow! I just found out that it’s International Artists Day, and I want
to say thank you to all of the wonderful artists around the world 
who have inspired me! Plus I want to thank all of the artists from
so many different countries who share their work, who support me
with encouragement on Instagram, Facebook and my blog.

If you possibly can, I recommend participating in International art shows.
Fees and shipping can be expensive yes. And the benefits and joys of 
participating certainly are more than worth it.

I have been lucky to show in the Carousel du Louvre Art Shopping show in
Paris, France 3 times, in the Florence Biennale twice, and in shows in New
York City 10 times, plus I've had work featured in the Netherlands, and
in California.  My whole life as an artist transformed in exciting ways
with these experiences. They brought me a worldwide artistic community and 
wonderful new friends. 

Happy International Artists’ Day!
