New Charms

I created some new charms that would be perfect on your phone, belt, backpack or even as a necklace. They will be available in my Etsy, 1000 Markets and Artfire store.

Screen Printing

I wanted to show you my latest attempt to silk screen on paper before I try fabric again. When I try fabric again I will probably use a grip to make sure the screen and fabric are closer together, this will allow for the ink to go on evenly.

Painting Finished

I finally finished my landscape painting. I am happy the way it turned out using the different patterns of color for the background. I am already thinking about what I am going to do for my next painting. I will start some preliminary sketches today.
I hope you all have a great weekend!

Timothy's Gallery

When I visit my mom, I make a point almost every time to go visit Timothy's Gallery in downtown Winter Park. I love the eclectic mix of fine art and fine craft that they carry. I also love the bright, inviting colors that you see throughout the store.

Timothy's Gallery was voted the top 25 gallery of American Crafts, Timothy's is a favorite in Central Florida for its wide range of artistic jewelry, contemporary crafts glass, wood, clay and fine art.
If you are ever in the area you should stop by this quaint gallery.

More pics from Florida

This a very eclectic wall made by outsider artist Gregory Warmack

When I was visiting my mom in Winter Park. We visited a place called Hannibel Square Heritage Center. Hannibel Square is a few blocks away from Park Ave. in downtown Winter Park. The Crealde School of Art has led by a mission to "provide extensive outreach, foster cultural diversity and preserve cultural heritage. The center weaves together American History, family, art classes and community interaction.

Here I am in front of this beautiful mural with my husband and mom. The mural tells the story of the famous march across the tracks to vote. For more info. here is their link: Hannibel Square

Vacation in Florida!

My family and I went to visit my mom in sunny, hot Florida this past week. I wanted to share a few pictures with you.

My mom has one of the most gorgeous yards on the block.

As you can see she has put a lot of time and effort.

My three cuties playing in the sand in Daytona Beach.

I am enjoying being under the umbrella in the shade feeling the breeze.

I will share more pictures later but for now off to unpacking and laundry.
