Broad Squad Art

Art by The Broad Squad
Pillow/Sharon Hughes  Fleur de lis Bulb/Me
Glitter tags/Candy Gloves/Lydia Reza

Last January Lydia Reza approached me with the idea of starting an art support group. I leapt at the opportunity to participate. Just a group of women artists getting together to discuss ideas on growing our art business, managing time/ family/home/art, what's working, what's not working, how to achieve our goals --- all over a steamy mug of java. Thus, the Broad Squad was created. Monthly meetings ensued, and the results are nothing short of spectacular (IMHO).

When I look back to last February, I am amazed at how far we have all come and am so proud of everyone! Sharon has been featured in Romantic Homes and will be participating in the Two Wild Roses show in Redlands on Nov. 5 & 6, Lydia and Candy's artwork is now available at Paris in a Cup, and later this month my Christmas ornies will be available at Knott's.

I'm very grateful to this group of women for their willingness to share ideas, listen, make suggestions and just be all around great girlfriends. Women working together is a very powerful combination. Can't wait to see what next year holds!
