Posing with one of my canvases - Amazing to see my work giclee printed on such a large canvas ~ the original work measured 12"x24"...This canvas was 18" x 36"! It turned out so well!
All dressed up for the art show last Friday nite at Ryan Chanel's here in town! The owner there put on a mind blowing hair and fashion show also ~ It was amazing!!!!!! I got so much wonderful response to my canvases! May have one possible buyer too so that is exciting!
My son Jordan and I - He is the only one of my boys (I think) that looks a lot like me ~ out of four you'd think there would have been more! :-)
He's 6' 4" and was still much taller than me even though I had high heels on! So wonderful to share my exciting night with my kids!
Probably the most exciting part of the past two weeks is that the local Starbucks has asked to feature a trio of my canvases in their main shop here in town! STARBUCKS! I went in yesterday and one of the barristas flagged me down and reminded me that the manager is anxious to get my art in there! So I will head in there tomorrow to talk to her and set up a time to install them. Pinching myself...!
ON TO CHRISTMAS TIDINGS :-)
And on to Christmas - this was the whole group (except Britt who was snapping the pic) out to pick out our xmas tree!
Three cuties: Rayne, Amira, and Vidal - love the braces on the older two! So cute!!!
We got to ride on a wagon pulled by two ENORMOUS black percheron horses - Eamonn, above, was a bit overcome...Not to mention the pressure of finding just the right tree! :-)
A smooch from Papa made it all better!
With so many of us on the hunt we were sure to find just the right one...
Liam seems pretty optimistic :-)
And we found the perfect tree! ALL of the kids insisted on the tallest one they had!
Liam, tuckered out after decorating the tree...He has been soooo looking forward to getting the tree :-)
Had to share this little bookmark I blinged out for my friend! Oh I had so much fun creating this packaging! The pink outer 'envelope paper had a velvet embossed floral pattern and has a velcro closure. I glued lots of little crystals to the bookmark and the envelope - All hand made - The gold paper on the back of the bookmark and little crystals really make it extra special!
I hope you are all enjoying your holiday season! May your lives be filled with JOY and PEACE and of course...
Lots of S M I L E S!
