Hi, everybody, & thanks for checking in on me! Last Friday night (1st Friday Art Event in Honolulu’s Chinatown District) was just fantastic! I’ve posted a couple of photos of my “booth” which was in “Chinatown Courtyard,” off Maunakea St. It’s a lovely courtyard setting, with beautiful exposed brick walls to hang my paintings, with room for a table for jewelry & prints. I met so many wonderful people there & got giddy in the creative environment. Many people stopped to look, compliment or purchase my wares. It was an artsy crowd and we had live flamenco music playing nearby.

I definitely plan to be there again, as it was a huge success & a really fun venue! I’ll keep you posted…

Sign up for my newsletter to remain “in the loop.” You’ll receive a free art gift from me, as well as remain on top of my events.

Aloha……

What a great evening last Thursday (2/2/12) at “The Arts at Marks Garage!” The Hawaii premiere of the film, “The Hooping Life” was played, with follow-up questions being answered by the film’s star, Anah. A hooping demonstration followed & then onto last-minute bids for the silent auction items. Winners were then announced & prizes distributed, with 50% of all proceeds donated to Girlfest~Hawaii. It was my honor & privilege to both attend & be a donor at this most important fundraiser!Thank you to Sirrka Aho & Lacey Coop, of R(e)Volve Hawaii for allowing me to be a part of this cause, which is so very near & dear to my heart. Blessings to all who were a part of this event. Aloha……… Susan Conrad Risse

Happy MLK Holiday, everyone! On the wings of the courageous Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I, too, would like to say: “I have a dream…” Do you have a dream?? I’ll bet you do. Several years ago, while living in a new city (suburb, really) with my husband and two preschool children, a seed was planted in me. I had no family or friends in this new place, so I spent a lot of time by myself or in the company of the children. I was no longer working as an International Flight Attendant, as I had done for many years. Instead I had chosen, with the support of my husband, to stay home and raise the kids. Firstly, I must say, I’m really happy with that choice. But some of those days, as I’m sure many stay-at-home parents will agree with me on, were extremely challenging. But, gradually, things began to change. I believe that every cloud does, indeed, have a silver lining. And often, behind that cloud, waiting in that silver lining, is an angel. Now, my angels come in many forms.  Sometimes, they appear in dreams or thoughts; sometimes in image, word or prayer. But, I must say that, at least for me, my favorite angels appear in human form. I can cite a number of examples, but I’m certain that if you think about it for a moment, you will know exactly what I’m talking about. Which brings me to my point. I believe in DREAMS, just as Dr. Martin Luther King did. And, I believe in ANGELS. And this is why I am so excited to announce, that I will be teaching in an on-line course, beginning in May, called “ANGELS IN MY STUDIO,” led by Sheri Ann Ponzi! We will be joined by a number of other amazing artists & teachers, as well. So, you see, I believe in myself & my dreams, I believe in the messages received from angels & I believe in YOU! Just look at me for an example. I am now a working artist, & fulfilling yet another dream: teaching an on-line spiritual & creative workshop with an incredible group of artists & teachers. Believe me, if I can do it, you can do it! Sign in for my newsletter to receive all of the latest information on the course right here, up on the right, in the box that days “SIGN ME UP!” (That’s just for my newsletter. Sign-ups for the course will begin in March.) “ANGELS IN MY STUDIO” course description can be found at: http://www.paintingherselfintobeing.com ***P.S.***DON’T FORGET TO COME DOWN TO THE GYPSY NIGHT MARKET IN CHINATOWN FOR FEBRUARY’S FIRST FRIDAY ART EVENT ON 2/3/12 5-10 PM
