A little Can go A Long ways

It is amazing how little adjustments can make pieces look so much better.

For instance: Just having my pictures in frames makes them look better, and a little primer paint and tape can make blah frames look entirely different. (I need to remember to take before pictures) I chose for the frames to look like a set but still be a little different just to add a little more visual interest. 

I am so happy with how this project turned out. These will hang nicely on the side of a large window in my living room.

This is a piece that I created for the purpose of creating a screen print to create cup towels with but when I was done I liked it so much that I decided to paint it as well, and display it in my apartment. Truth be told the painting came out better than my screen. I love the colors, and hope you do too.

Hispanic Contemporary Market

Ok so this happened last weekend I just haven't had a chance to post it. It was so much fun, it was held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and there were tons of booths with so many unique pieces of art work.


  I loved the colors of these pieces of furniture.

There were quite a few artists with pieces that had a Dia de los Muertos theme going on, they were very interesting

I loved that the artist of these used natural rocks that were already so beautiful with the moss and colors, and he didn't alter the natural beauty but added to it with the cute little birds perched upon it. 

1). I like Giraffes, and 2). I like when unexpected supplies are used.

As my mother and I were walking she was looking for her cousins name that she had met a couple of weeks ago,  for the first time since childhood. My mom was able to spot her because she recognized some of her art that she had shown her when my mom visited. 

It was a nice day, and even the weather was on our side it was a little overcast with some nice cloud cover so it wasn't even a scorching day.
