Wholehearted: An Art Reception & Book Launch

Hello, Rogue Valley friends! Fun event alert for this weekend! Join me for a combo art reception of milagro paintings and a book launch for a mother-daughter book:Blessings: A Children’s Book for Grown-ups. I had the joy of working with my mom to craft the simple blessings inside–and to create the simple illustrations for them, too. It’s a wholehearted eve’, indeed. Join us this Saturday, 26 January, from 5-7 pm at Jacksonville’s delightful new project cafe, The Miners’ Bazaar {235 E California St.}. Owner Rosie will be selling a range of local wines, beer, tea & coffee. Bring a friend or a love or both! (The reception would make a great start to an evening in Jacksonville–consider heading out for dinner after. We love to support our local businesses!) Bonus: the blessing book is a coloring book, and we’ll be including little bundles of colored pencils with purchase. You can

In addition to mostly finishing my poetry manuscript, I created and posted little bits of micropoetry and watercolors each day to share the journey. When I gathered those daily lines together, I was happy to see that they had shaped a single poem that celebrates beauty and community. You can find it here along with a few of the paintings.
