Lots of art and little tea bag art especially little bluebirds are flying out from my art show at The Gathering Place’s west-side location and into new homes! The show is there until after mid-June. Then I will have a show at the Gathering Place east-side from July through Sept. I do commission work… so if you see something sold know I can create something similar. I will donate a portion of my sales to the Gathering Place, which supports people with cancer.
My art show Whimsical Blooms and Curious Creatures is on display at the Cleveland Botanical Garden’s Big Spring event which begins Saturday 3/18/17 and goes through 4/23/17. I have 70 paintings on display …. that is a lot of paintings to hang! Thanks to my wonderful husband and daughter for their assistance with the set-up yesterday. I am grateful to be a part of this wonderful fun and color-filled event with lots of flowers. The hyacinths smell divine. Hope you will stop on down and check it all out.
Here is a recent tea bag resting on my homemade art papers. Muted colors and nature designs are my favorite and I find inspiration in the organic colors and patterns that show up on the tea bag.
I am thrilled that my inspiring mantra art is for sale at the beautiful Awaken Yoga studio in Mentor, Ohio. It is truly one of the most beautiful yoga studios I have been in. And sign up for free yoga classes for this weekend’s grand opening of the new studio at their new location. More information is on Awaken’s Facebook Page
Little bluebird of happiness. This one is on display (through the end of Feb) with lots more of my art for sale at the Kirtland Community Center.
I will be teaching a class called Art Exploration on Wednesday January 25th from 6pm to 8pm at the Kirtland Community Center at 7900 Euclid Chardon Rd, Kirtland, OH 44094.
This class is for anyone (even those who have never painted before) who wants to explore painting and mixed media art in an intuitive and non-judgmental way. I look forward to sharing techniques and my passion for intuitive art making in this fun and playful class. If you plan on attending please in advance of the class message me at firstname.lastname@example.org, therefore I will know how many supplies to bring.

It is so comforting to have a cup of tea. Tea is a must in my life. Holding the warm cup, sipping slowly… drinking tea brings moments of needed calm to my fast paced life with the seemingly endless things to do. Maybe it is me being an older mom, but I absolutely crave serenity and quiet these days and I am learning it is vital to my well-being.
It is week 5 of my tea bag art posting and here is my wabi-sabi tea pot (which recently sold to a woman in California).
During this season of celebration ….sending you sweet serenity. Week 4 of weekly posting of my tea bag art.
