Eight years old and All is Well

14 August 2012

The theme for Ruby's eighth birthday was mermaids - so, with the help of Google Images I recreated a mermaid in a circular canvas to present to her on her celebration. Having six nieces is one of the my greatest joys... their walls are art-filled as I've given them artwork by me or fellow artists for their Christmas and birthday presents since they were born.

Rebecca Zelinski at AFA

04 August 2012

There's a great new show that opened at AFA in Scranton yesterday by Rebecca Zelinski - her work inspired me in many ways - the simplicity and texture.  The works are encaustic which is using wax with paint creating amazing textural effects.  I'm showing a work I purchased and am so excited to hang it amongst my other favorite artists!
