It’s a great honor to have been invited to exhibit my most current works of art at ArtSpace Gallery Dallas. The show is called “Sunsets” and features my view of one of God’s greatest natural wonders. I’m in awe of the sunsets that I am blessed to take in daily and decided to capture their beauty on canvas.
Come out and meet me for the Artist Reception – Thursday, August 7, 2014 from 6 – 9pm. ArtSpace at Metropolitan Press 6400 Maple Avenue Suite 180, Dallas Texas 75235. For details call 214-635-3131. If you are in Dallas, I hope to see you there!
“Sunsets” featuring the Art of Chanel Christoff Davis opens August 4, 2014 and runs until August 22, 2014.
During spring break my family visited the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas’ Arts District for the David Bates Exhibition. David Bates is a Dallas based artist who has a great series of Hurricane Katrina paintings. I had hoped to catch a glimpse of one of the Katrina pieces but they were not a part of this exhibition. Most of the pieces were on loan from private collections. My daughter is mimicking David Bates’ signature style of only showing one hand with four fingers and one ear in his self-portraits. I will be visiting more museums this year and posting the pics here, so check back often.
Writing thank you notes is one of my favorite ways to express gratitude in my daily life. I hope that by sharing my art this way, I’m spreading the spirit of gratitude to the people around me. How do you exercise gratitude in your day-to-day life?

The summer is officially here! I am trying to enjoy this the summer before the heat becomes unbearable. One thing that I love especially is that my favorite color is on full display. Cobalt BLUE makes my heart sing!
Show me your colors…what hue is giving you life right now?
One of my favorite steps in this art process is, PRESS CHECK DAY!!!!! I bring all of my original paintings and check the colors of my art prints. I am super picky and I do my best to get as close to the original painting as possible. It’s such a rewarding process and always lifts my day. Here are some pictures from one of my press checks at the printers.

April is National Letter Writing month. This is an annual effort to promote literacy and celebrate the art of letter writing. To celebrate, I am doing two things this year. I will catch up on all of handwritten “thank you” notes. Also, I am introducing my 10 year old daughter to writing thank you notes and letters. We created a special stationery box just for her and I gave her a special silver pen to store with her personal stationery collection. I’m passing on a tradition that has existed for centuries. Teaching your child to write thank you notes is also a great way to teach children how to practice gratitude. That’s a gift your child will carry with them for a lifetime.
I personally love receiving a handwritten note and sadly with the invention of technology it has become a lost art. I believe we can bring this tradition back.
How do practice and teach gratitude to your children? Please share below.
