I opened a new little boutique gallery/store space in Kennett Square, PA. I officially opened in September and just had my second “First Friday” event. It all happened so quickly and wasn’t anything I was planning to do, but here I am. I’ve been getting settled and figuring out the purpose of the space. At first I thought it should be a studio and I could have some workshops and occasionally be open to the public. Once I got into the space though, it was clear that I had to put myself out there and open up and allow all of the new energy in. I’m not quite sure what to call the space because it’s a functioning studio, retail store and gallery. I keep calling it different things, somedays it’s a store and others a gallery. It’s a tiny little space located inside The Square Pear Fine Art Gallery. I have two large window displays which is a lot of fun. I started a new window display board on Pinterest and am pinning all kinds of ideas to try out. The first show I had in September was all about my watercolor florals. I have so much art, it seemed like the easiest way to ease myself into this new form of putting myself out there. This Friday was the opening of my new show, Moon + Magic. The show highlighted my new work and included moon phases, altar art, intuitive symbols and my new Sacred Stones Series. I am definitely honing in on the meaning and purpose of this space. I can feel it manifesting and am so excited.
A big part of this new space are my new workshops! I started teaching this year. It was something that was way overdue. I resisted it for so long and finally decided to surrender and see what happens. Well… lots has happened! I created an intuitive watercolor floral workshop and the response has been so great. I love teaching this class. I love creating a calm, nurturing environment for my students to create in and I especially love the journey we go through during class. I will talk about the workshops more in my next post.
Life keeps shifting and opening up for me. It’s not always easy, but damn… it’s worth the ride. I am feeling really grateful for this new phase in my journey.
