Whiz Bang Woman

I just had lunch with a new friend and we talked about--writing, expressing yourself, creativity, art, psychology, family life, career, college,   I also spent the weekend with one of my best friends who is an artist.  We immersed ourselves in art the entire weekend--an art talk by 3 artists at a co-op gallery, a private show, a public show at Galleria d'Arte in Ridgefield, Ct, and a party of a friend and art mentor of hers who had actually won an Emmy for writing on his PBS show.  And he's a painter!  Figure that!

Here are Kudos and plugs for these 3 whiz bang women.  Each of these women is an entrepreneur, and a creative, positive, powerful force.  Click on their names to go to their websites.

Donna HighfillStephanie Joyce, and Dara Polenghi-Quinn

I bought a piece of art at Dara's show and it was an emotional, powerful experience.  Until last year, I had collected pre-Civil War era American furniture, so I never met any of the artists.  When I bought my first fine arts piece last year in Denmark I was so moved by the piece and by the artist.  The same happened Saturday when I bought a silver piece of jewelry from an artist who was actually showing paintings at the show.  I connected with him quite viscerally.

I am awed by the power and spiritual connection in art, literature, creativity, and emotion.

Please share with me and other readers any experiences or thoughts that come to mind.  I'd love to hear about it!
