Happy New Year!

Best Wishes to all of my friends, family and collectors.  May the coming year bring you peace and contentment down in your soul, and joy that overflows into the lives of others.

For me, 2013 was a year of momentum in establishing my  presence as a credible artist in my community with the Open Studios Art Tour in October, and reaching toward more collectors with my new website for Fool's Gold Bears. This year, I've been inspired to create more than I have for years, and as 2014 unfolds, I look forward to continued inspiration and productivity.  I'm eager to see what new creative vistas will open up before me, what new friendships I'll make, and how existing ones will flourish and grow. My wish/prayer/goal for the coming year is to see my future art studio take form, from paper to reality.

A Happy Announcement!


 I am happy to announce that the brand new Fool's Gold Bears website is now ready and it is live - and it is in time for your Holiday shopping.  You will find about a dozen creations on the site, many of which have not been available until this moment. They may be adopted right from the website through PayPal.  You do not need to have a PayPal account to use the service. PayPal will accept your credit cards. Another valuable feature of PayPal is their "Bill Me Later" payment option, where you can receive your purchases immediately, but have up to 6 months to pay for them. New creations will be added to my website on an ongoing basis, so check back often.  New items will continue to be posted on BearPile from time to time as well.

Here it is - Merry Christmas!  Happy Holidays!  http://fools-gold-bears.com/

The Next Step for Fool's Gold Bears

Something wonderful happened at the Open Studios Art Tour that I hosted at my studio in October this year.  I met a talented husband and wife team who work together to make websites that are a cut above in function and beauty from most I've seen .  Their company is AzureFire llc .

Lucky me, I've been working with them and will soon be launching a new website for Fool's Gold Bears.  It will be ready this month.  

Because I want this opening to be special, I've been saving up my creations to be released  in celebration of this special event.  Here are a few teasers to pique your interest.  

These are just a few of the new creations that you will meet when the new site is ready.  I'll be sure to let you know as soon as the new site is live.
