Leaving bright and early from Philadelphia, Pa to travel to Baltimore, Maryland. The Pulpwood Queen, a.k.a. Kathy L. Murphy has been on a Pulpwood Queen “Warrior Goddess” Pop-Up Art and Book Tour with her bestie, Pulpwood Queen Tiajuana Anderson Neel. Yesterday we arrived to meet Author, Artist Melissa Conroy, and family and have a big time ever since. The trip all started as I am an artist too and I traveled to Rumson, New Jersey to deliver a fairly large canvas of one of my artworks titled, “The Blue Portal”. For anyone reading this that finds the connection in the author, Laurel Davis Huber’s book, “The Velveteen Daughter” will receive a signed autograph copy of my up and coming newly republished book, “The Pulpwood Queens’ Tiara Wearing, Book Sharing Guide to Life.” Laurel purchased my painting so I shot out an email going to Rumson, New Jersey who would like me to stop for a Pulpwood Queen visit to do my “Horse and Pony” Show. The response has been overwhelming from visiting Pulpwood Queen Book Club leaders, chapters, authors, and artists. You can read my previous blogs to follow our Road Warrior Art, Fashion and Literacy Promoting Tour.
We had a blast with Melissa yesterday and went to her exhibition Insta-Snap Off the Wall Gallery at Dirty Franks, see above photo. Had a favorite drink that I enjoyed in Venice which is an Aperol/Prosecco spritzer, they called it a Sparky which was so refreshing. We went to Magic Gardens which was so up my alley I fell in Love BIG TIME with the artist. We visited the Italian Markets and back to their home for Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches from D’alessarios, yummy. Melissa showed us her studio and I was able to purchase some incredible prints which I will be sharing when I get home. Good times in Philly in this historical 1920’2 home.
