New ways to be involved with art! May 31 2017, 0 Comments
I'm always exploring new ways to be able to focus more on creating...
I've set up a page Patreon where I'll create a types of content for patrons. I'm excited to push myself to create in different ways - I'll be making sketches, audio, videos and even doing livestreams!
I'm sharing the news with you here on my art blog as one of the first places to announce this new partnership to create broader value exchange for my work.
The more consistently stable my art can be, the more I'll be able to fund and create special projects and develop other initiatives I have, like my give back program, Take Action for Good (TAG)
Please take a look at my page, share as you like and let me know your comments and feedback on what you'd like to see there. If you're inclined to become a patron, I'd be so honored and on my way to reaching my first goal!

An Early Wake Up: Good Morning Arizona Features New Gallery August 21 2015, 0 Comments
Grabbed a quick coffee this morning to open up the new gallery space for the news team. Gotta to love it when I say, "It's not officially open, let's do this another time…" and they say, they love previews!
We are installing lights and a few other items on the checklist before we open, which is set for September 1st. Check updates at http://www.cavecreekgallery.com
So, in the spirit of saying, Yes to opportunities that serve and No to those time-chasers that distract, here is the video from Good Morning Arizona:azfamily.com 3TV | Artist, Roxanne Vise at new Cave Creek Gallery
First Place Award for the Showcase Exhibit November 02 2014, 0 Comments
Last night was the opening reception for the Hidden in the Hills Showcase.
I strolled through the show, sipping lemon water, meeting the guests and artists and enjoying the autumn Sonoran Desert air - let in by the doors open to the terrace. It's a good feeling to get out from the studio and enjoy what other artists are creating.
The guests were called to attention by the Town Mayor, Vincent Francia, who opens with a lovely nod to the arts and proceeds to call the winners of the show. He calls my name for First Place.
So I won an award. The biggest one for the exhibit - and I almost didn't enter the show.
It's easy to let opportunities go by. This season, I stated that I would say "yes" to opportunities and do the work to engage in them. I'm grateful that this opportunity said yes back.
Two paintings in the show: Effervesce and Dungarees

I finished this large encaustic, Water World, on Wednesday and hung it at Celebration of Fine Art on Thursday.
It's 24"h x 80"w and framed in a floater frame - so much fun to do this size!
