More Holiday Coloring Cards

My printer just called and my cards are ready for pickup, so I am sure that I will have plenty on Saturday at the Art of the Gift:  Authors and Artists on the Rima wonderful Art Fair at the
Above is a sample from my second series of  Holiday Coloring Cards.  I have three sets.  All are printed in black and white.  Five different cards in each set, or you can choose from singles. Color them to suit your fancy before you send, or let your friends and family take part in the fun!

Holiday Coloring Cards

Love the Adult Coloring Book trend going on right now!  It inspired sets of globes to send out as holiday cards.  Send the cards just as they are or add your own coloring.  A gift either way.  I will have them on sale at the Gift Fair at Twin Falls Center for the Arts on Saturday, Dec. 5.

Festival of Giving

This painting is called First Snow.  It is on display at the Festival of Giving at the Southern Idaho Landscape Center as part of the fundraiser for local non-profits.  The Magic Valley Arts Council has sponsored a tree and the buyer will take home this painting as well!  The opening gala last night was very festive, beautifully decorated and it was so good to see old friends and meet some new ones!

Underfoot!

More aspens!  This piece is an experiment in negative painting which means that I start with a design and then paint the negative spaces around it adding more leaves as it goes deeper.  Also experimenting with water droplets.  All fun!

Time for Aspens!

Nature Patterns is the name of this latest piece in my Aspen Series.  I placed it today in the Full Moon Gallery at the Twin Falls Center for the Arts.  Stop in the lobby to see it and let me know what you think.  Look closely for the residents of this piece.

Jardin de Fleurs

I have wanted to dig back into my long stem series for a while and have combined the flowers from my front yard to create this bigger piece.  Somehow digging back into my high school French for flower paintings feels right.   This painting and others are on display at the Twin Falls Center for the Arts as part of the South Central Regional Idaho Watercolor Society Show.  Good fun and good comments last night at the opening!

Le Bouquet

Art and Soul of the Magic Valley starts tomorrow in Twin Falls.  Two full weeks of art on display all around town.  This is a pic of my entry for the contest.  I am fortunate to have my painting on display at Rosebud's Florist here in Twin Falls.  Nice people and a great store.  Desiree said she was going to do a look alike bouquet to display near my piece.  Cool huh!

Welcome to the World, Mae Lily

My new grandchild, Mae Lillian, arrived on January 19.  She is beautiful, has lots of hair, and is such a welcome addition to the family.  Her mom wanted a watercolor piece for Mae's room.  She wanted it to include some Lily of the Valley and this is what I came up with!  It is at the framer and will show up in Seattle as soon as it is framed!

The Kathy

Another entry in the Teacup Generation Series.  This cup is "The Kathy".  It tells the story of Kathy, the poet and creative multi-crafter!  The cup is one of her favorites in her collection of cups, and came from her mom's collection.
