I am too tired today to figure out who won.Â Partly because we had a good meeting for the Artists of Franklin County …Â and partly because tomorrow is my hospital day for Remicade – I am pretty tired and stretched out. It is good because some other people are going to step up and help put on this next AWE Project (Artists Window Exhibit). This will help it last a long, long time!
Susan Elkin and I have been doing it quite long enough as mainly the 2 of us!Â She has been a great help!Â By the way, Susan has posted today!!

Today I was featured in the Town Crier, Greenfield, MA.Â It is THE front page article and is in full color!Â Susan Elkin is also interviewed and featured.Â Pretty exciting!!Â I am quoting you the beginning of the article with a link to read the rest ….Â Here is the rest of the article.Â This is the online version … but on the print version, it is big and lovely too!
<beginning of the quote>Diane Clancy, Susan Elkin and fellow Artists of Franklin County have been presenting their signature ArtProject Window Exhibit, or AWE, in downtown Greenfield storefront windows for the past three years with positive feedback from residents, visitors and shop owners.
“People in town say it makes such a difference,” said Diane.Â “It really ties our community together and we want to broaden the base.”
Artists of Franklin County meet often to hold artist presentations, various discussion groups and work on other projects like the constantly expanding AWE. AWE can be seen three times a year during the spring, summer and fall at over 30 locations in the area. Last year’s exhibit featured artwork by Greenfield High School students, works by mental health patients will be a focus of interest this year.Â <end of the quote>

Today this Butterfly Deva told me her name before I finished creating her .. she just jumped right out and said, “Me, Me, Me!!!” Wonderful feedback I got yesterday regarding creating different vibrant, colorful paintings and naming them! Today was a rough day so this will be short and sweet – I hope you like this deva! (nature spirit)
