Stopped at Barnes & Noble so the Mrs. could sign  her new releases, she doesn’t look too happy, does she?

My Beautiful Failure is her latest which was released on Nov 13 along with "Things I Shouldn’t Think" formerly "The Babysitter Murders" released in paperback the same day. Her first novel "The Opposite of Music" was released in 2007. Simon & Schuster is the publisher.  

    Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Hi, Joey.  I was wondering if you could include this announcement on Good Morning Gloucester sometime next week before the event on Dec. 1st.  Our Holiday Open House will be starting immediately after the Rockport Tree Lighting, and will continue into the evening.  We’ll have wine, hot chocolate, and lots of food to warm up the evening! Kids are welcome as well!  In addition to new artwork, we’ll be featuring our handcrafted holiday gifts, all made by our local artists, including myself, Stefan Mierz, Jean Byrd, Christopher Wood, Jeremy and Dana Hatch, Sue Miller and more

Thank you so much, and I hope you can attend!

Old Masters Techniques in Miniature
Oil Painting or Watercolor Workshop

Date: December 4th & 5th
Time: 9AM to 3PM
Cost: $175


Join nationally recognized teaching artist Lully Schwartz to try your hand painting master techniques. The experience and knowledge gained in creating small masterpieces will further the student’s ability to understand, control and create in oil paint and/or watercolor. Learning from the masters is an insightful method for advancing an artist’s talent.

A brief overview of European and American Masters will be followed by Lully’s demonstration on material use, under-painting and glazing. The atmosphere in which you will develop your work will correspond to the master’s studio experience for working in miniature. A special materials list will be provided and additional tools made available by Lully for use in the workshop. Note: Each artist will be given source material for the first painting and encouraged to paint an original miniature work of art for the second. To receive the optimal experience in this class artists sign up for both days.

Contact Lully Schwartz at for more information or to sign up for this workshop. Note: workshop size is limited for the optimal learning experience. Four openings left and registration is taking place now.
