Quote of the Day: 

  • May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.Neil Gaiman
I think I used that one last year, but it’s worth repeating, especially as my sister Joy and I are embarking on a new adventure. We’ve formed the Primo Art Spa to support artists in the area. For our first event, we’ll be offering a class at the local pottery place, Glaze 2 Amaze.  Here’s the blurb.

Paint to Music at Glaze 2 Amaze, Thursday, January 24 from 6:30-8:00 pm. Joy Ciaffoni and Mary Aalgaard, who have started the Primo Art Spa to assist artists in the area, will be performing live music while you paint a plate and find out what kind of music brings out your red, blue, lemon, or your spice. Using a plate as a palate, you will create art that serves up memory, emotion, and delicious inspiration. You can use it as a plate for special occasions, a gift, or a memory piece for someone you love. Glaze 2 Amaze is located at 706 Laurel Street in Brainerd. Email primoartspa@gmail.com for reservations for this special event. Cost is $25.


If you’re in the area, I hope you can join us! Joy and I make a good team. A couple years ago, we did a show called “Sisters.” Here’s one of my favorite photos from that event.

We were singing the song “Sisters.”
Join us for an inspirational class if you can, or take a class wherever you live, or start your own…and
Go. Create. Inspire!
