Floridian water is definitely affecting my color choices this week. My eyes just want to dive in. I wonder what this neighborly tufted titmouse thinks of it...
He will be one of about 20 original watercolor paintings that I am hanging at Elcy's Cafe @ the Glenside Train Station tomorrow, for my first solo show. He has a purple finch to keep him company there.
Show dates: April 1 - May 12, 2016
Hours: M-F 5:45a-3p, Sat 8a-2:30p
Chickens obviously cross roads to get out of the way of the tourist traffic in Key West, but why did this chicken (or rather...rooster) climb the tree?
We may never know the answer to that question, but this memory is one my family will keep for a long time...especially my son since I gave him this painting. (It seemed fair since I used his painting set to make it! )
"Pineapple Sectional," a watercolor triptych, will be available at the Triennial Penn Charter Art Show from April 8-14, located at 3000 West School House Lane in Philadelphia 19144. It won't quite look like this since it will be framed, but I just finished it today so I thought I'd share it.
Did you know that Columbus first encountered the pineapple in 1493 in the Caribbean? It became a symbol of hospitality because it was quite rare in Europe and if your host served you one it meant you were pretty special.
Your sneak peek of the day involves me and my flower book idea that has been brewing for, no joke, two years. While I thought at one point this would be a children's picture book...I even wrote a manuscript that I shelved...it has now become an accordion book.
"My Little Flower Book" presents 10 flowers in the order in which they appear in my yard (or walkable distance from my yard) during early spring.
Because I was whisked away by some helpful hands (Thanks, Michelle!) to bring this to the shop for a high res scan this morning, I present the last picture I took before I finished the project. Expect to see the fully realized idea at the Cheltenham Center for the Arts Shop Trunk Show, Friday April 8, 5-7pm where I will have my work available alongside the work of the lovely and talented fiber artist, Teresa Shields, and a surprise guest woodworker (Yay!). Refreshments and entertainment (PK Su) will be provided.
This painting is dedicated to my cousin Danny Paulus. It is a memory of his struggle and a prayer for his peace in the afterlife.
He died on Sunday at the age of 25. My heart just wants to wrap my aunt, uncle, and his two sisters in a continual hug of love. Please keep them in your prayers.
