Taking the Plunge to Full-Time Artist

Cari Amici (Dear Friends),

Today is the anniversary date of the day I sold my beeswax candle business in 2001 and took the plunge full-time into an art career. It has been a bit of a roller coaster ride and I cannot say it is a life of security by any means; however, it was the right move for me. And the only one I could have made by that point in my life and even today, twelve years later.

As a thank you for helping me keep to this journey, I typically have a special offer in January to help you get more art in your life. This offer is detailed in my recent art newsletter that is posted on my Web site. In this newsletter, I have also shared some of my experiences and images while visiting the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. In addition, I have written a bit about artists Richard Serra and David Hockney.

Whether your interest is in sculpture or travel or even 2-dimensional artworks, I hope that you will check out my latest art news: and help me celebrate TWELVE full years of art making! Thank you for reading and riding along!

P.S. Many thanks to my friend Anna Laura in Mexico who took this silly shot of me pole dancing among friends when we had “The Blob” to ourselves this past July. I enjoyed getting to be friends with her as she lived in Firenze for a short time. Charming girl. [The Blob is a horrible little nightclub that is one of the few open till 5 a.m. in Florence, Italy. There are more images from that party on Facebook, my “Friends – Album V” in case you are curious.]

Happy birthday, Aunt Patsy! Let’s dance some more!

Guggenheim Serra Bilbao

Cari Amici (Dear Friends),

Friday 11 January is my 12th anniversary for taking the plunge into full-time art. I have been busy writing my next art newsletter for those on my list. The main subjects will be the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, as well as the architectural sculptures of Richard Serra that are part of the Guggenheim’s permanent collection. I include a few of my images here as a wee bit of a teaser.

Also included in the newsletter will be my annual special offer on my available artworks. (I am still dreaming that up!) If you would like to receive this newsletter and have not yet signed up for it (the list is a different one from this blog subscription), please visit my contact page to subscribe. You may also read past newsletters to see if you would enjoy receiving your own copy, click on my art newsletter table of contents page:

Thank you for sharing this artistic journey with me. And stay tuned . . .

Buon compleanno, Tomaso!
