It slips through fingers & air time went by & I didn't care... Part ONE!

So here I am again with several months off from my blog and now with summer behind me, being absent on my blog was not intentional. I just get so full of life it distracts me, takes me away from the things I used to do but hey, it happens and well we should all be happy it does rather than being glued to our glowing boxes burning our eyes out. ;) We all try to balance the best we can but sometimes you just trip and fall and your face goes off the map. Then you have to gain momentum again to do those things you once did... except now on top of it all you have new jobs, new shows, new paintings, new family members, new sicknesses, new tricks, life is full of new tricks at every turn!

AHHHhhh and Now for another distraction, it's yet another social media site. Ello is that you? Find me there @angiemasonart even though I feel so disjointed and spread thin as it is online, but I still decided to join and how to handle that in regards to 'ello for now I will sporadically post animated gifs of me making art or my art animated. PERIOD! So many fads and trends around... in the end we all want to connect,we find each other and the newness of finding each other is a great part of the novelty I suppose. Like when you are a kid and you make friends in school for the first time it can be magical and scary and over all wonderful. It always starts off new and fun like that and I guess that too is part of the charm and pull that sucks me in. Fresh starts everyone wants them and lucky for us we get them every few years via some social media site. This post is not going to be all about social media I am done going on about that... I REALLY am blogging because I wanted to share a few neat things I have done over my "summer vacation" from my blog. ^___^ Random roadtrips, finds artworks you know life crumbs! THIS IS PART ONE OF TWO! 

Looking back in order of events roughly.... well FIRST OF ALL my Botanicuties show was fantastic thank you all for coming and a huge thank you to Martina and Frank of MF Gallery! I love those 2 they are part of my art family ^_^ 

Speaking of Botanicuties in late Spring we welcomed my new Niece in to this world with SMILES!

July was pretty much was filled with friends, nature, and delicious food :) oh and I did an art event in Philly with the wonderful people from ArtStar Gallery who I also love and adore! Prepare for a photo heavy post! :)

Me and my set up for the day :) 
I realize I have a lot of catching up to do talking about the take away moments from this summers past. Too many to mention really or too personal to bother to post online, for me anyway ;) but I think I will post a bit more of photos and then call it a night. To be continued!  I am back on the blog horse I will do a Part TWO within this next week so look for it!

I took lots of road trips this Summer many to Upstate NY! I Love New York! For reals it's so full of nooks and crannies pockets of wonder over flowing in to the majestic Hudson River! Hudson New York, Carmel NY, Montauk NY, Beacon, Storm King, etc etc etc. Places like Wings Castle! WOW!
Or the Buddhist Temple in Carmel is a must see! More on that in part TWO!

But for the rest of this post it was all Friends, Food and Cats! Party!
