Kenilworth Artists  Studio Stroll ~ May 27 & 28 ~ 10am -5pm

I am once again, participating in a studio stroll in the Kenilworth neighborhood of Asheville, NC.  There is great information on the 19 artists participating in this years tour at this link: kenilworthartists.org, along with a map of the studios to visit.

My sheep family was inspired by the mountains I now live with, wrapping around us at every turn.  This  latest work will be on view along with a number of other new pieces for the studio stroll.

The West End Bakery in West Asheville on Haywood, has graciously allowed me to hang my art on their walls for the month.  If you’re in the neighborhood -stop by and have a yummy pumpkin spice latte and see my artwork! img_4819img_4820img_4821img_4822img_4823

I joined an outdoor painting group yesterday and discovered a awesome location and business – Blue Ridge Daylily Farm. It’s colorful, enormous and staffed by a very friendly crew. Lots of fun and definetly inspiring !

And my own little works in progress …

…happy summertime painting!

Mark your calendar for this great opportunity to view all kinds of art work and the studios where it was created.  

This is my  second time to participate in this great neighborhood event in Asheville, North Carolina. I join 14 other artists who will be opening up their homes or studios to display, sell and talk about their art. We are all part of the Kenilworth Artists Association.

Come and support your local artisans!

“Courage”

This was my recent piece that I used in the annual post card swap, hosted by Kat Sloma, called “LiberateYour Art”.  Participants send five postcards to enter the swap. Kat and helpers send your cards to five other participants which means I received five plus one from Kat , cards in the mail!!

Here is a short video hightlighting a sampling of cards from the swap that went not only across the US but internationally as well….(you will see my lion in here as well:)…

 

Here are the post cards I recieved in my mail box!IMG_3952

Fancy Feathers-Owls

Adding another owl piece, I can’t stop seeing these faces – they keep peaking out at me!
I had fun creating this background with collage, acrylics and stencils and then poof they appeared. They are a fun pair with their “Fancy Feathers” – enjoy!
