Currently on the Calendar:
  • Indy Decorative Artists' 2016 HandPainted Quilt is now complete.  The squares for our 2017 quilt, Butterflies, are ready to be assembled.  If you would like an opportunity to own the current one, email me, and i'll share with you about our tickets.  Half our proceeds go to Riley Hospital for Chilcren.
  • The Heartland Christian Writers' Group not only has published Stories from the Heartland, but a second anthology is now available. 
    Hodgepodge: An Anthology by the Heartland Christian Writers  From the back cover: A collection of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and prose, this book is truly what the title suggests: a hodgepodge of literary delight.
  • The membership year for The Society of Decorative Painters runs from January to December.  If you are a new or returning member, you have the opportunity to join for a $20 discount.  (Of course, you won't be receiving the premier print magazine at that rate, but you'll have every other benefit, including the complete copy of it online.)  Some state have many chapters and others have few or none;  Indy Decorative Artists  is the chapter in Indiana.  There are international chapters, too.
  •  Indy Decorative Artists's 31st Annual painters retreat, "Mix It Up," will be April 3-5, 2017, at 
    The Seasons Lodge, 560 IN-46, Nashville, IN 47448, (812) 988-2284
      Nonmembers welcome; email me for details!   Reservations to be made directly through the Inn; mention us for the special rate!
  • The 46th Annual Society of Decorative Painters Conference & Expo will take place May 16-20, 2017 at the  Ocean Center, Daytona Beach in Daytona, FL. Online registration will likely open in December.

What you won't find here:
  • my churches
  • my schools
  • my kids' schools
The reason for this is not that i do not wish to support them publicly.  Rather, being comprised of imperfect human beings, i will need to say embarrassing things about these institutions in the context of telling my story.  Since impressions, often negative, can be formed from these brief mentions, i prefer to keep their anonymity instead of showing my loyalty to them.
If you are truly interested, it's out there.

  In no particular, possibly ever-changing, order:
