Art, Blogging, Facebook and a Garden Tour
Bridge over the dry stream bed
I am really excited about the upcoming Garden Tour sponsored by the Northport Historical Society this coming Sunday, June 14, 2009 from Noon until 4 pm.
I am doing a comprehensive redesign of much of my garden this year and I’m really looking forward to showing and talking about this work-in-progress. I’ve been gardening on this little piece of ground for twenty years and I finally bit the bullet to tackle some real challenging gardening issues that develop as a garden ages.
Since my garden is such an integral part of my life as an Artist, this redesign and rethinking plays itself out over many of my artistic endeavors.
To see my garden and the other six magnificent gardens on this Tour please visit the Northport Historical Society home page to get your tickets, tour guide and map.
Stand out in a crowd
I have joined the millions of people who have embraced Facebook as a means of staying connected with friends from the past, present and future. As an Artist and a Garden Designer, I enjoy showing my Garden and my Art. If I don’t share it in words and pictures with the many friends I have from afar, I will only have me as an audience. All that beauty just for my eyes? Far too selfish for my taste. So please visit me either on Facebook and/or on my Blogs.
For my Blog enthusiasts I’m made some changes.
Since I found that different folks enjoy different subjects, I’ve split my Blog into 2 different entities.
For those who enjoy reading about Art I have this blog.
Art Naturally – Musings of My Life as an Artist.
This Blog talks about Art Shows, Influences, Reviews, New Work, Education and more.
For my http://www.northporthistorical.org friends I have
The Garden-Artist – My Garden, My Art, Where Passions Merge.
My Garden Blog shows where I grow the inspiration for my Art.
It also follows in words and photos the Garden Design projects I’ve created and worked on in the Garden I’ve enjoyed for the last 20 years.
I hope to see you in my garden or if you can’t visit, I hope to share with you online.

As an added bonus I will be showing some of my Digital and Traditional Mixed Media Paintings during the Garden Tour. Orders may be placed for pick-up after the Garden Tour ends at 4PM.
If you’d like to call to ask me questions about my work or would like to place an order for pick up please email me with your name and phone #.
