No Greater Inspiration....

There is no greater inspiration than L-O-V-E!  Recently I had the opportunity to witness and participate in the union of one of my best friends. 


See that's me on the right, then the left! (By the way, Martin Johnson is a gifted photographer, and he took that photo.  Looks like a postcard doesn't it?!)  Anyway, I was so inspired by the beautiful scenery and atmosphere, I needed only to pick the right moment to base a new artwork on.  I chose this moment:

Can't you feel the love?

With that said, here is the final product, as well as it displayed at the reception.

It is 20" x 20" big. I hope they love it!

SAQA Benefit Auction 2014

For the 4th year in a row, I am participating in the SAQA Benefit Auction.  My pieces have sold every year, so I am hoping I can keep the streak going!  If you get a chance, go to to check out all of the wonderful pieces up for auction.  It begins Sept. 15th.  In the meantime, here is my work in progress:

And the finished product:

I created this 12"X12" piece by starting with a glue gel resist.  I then hand painted it, let it dry and hand stitched it in the resist areas.  Finally I accented the image with beads and sequins. What do you think?
