Friday, December 9, 2016


Hi Everyone. Welcome back to Part 2.
Grab your favorite beverage!!!
Black Friday we decided to head down town. Let me tell you the stores were empty and this was around noon. Either everyone was there at early morning hours or they were all shopping online.
We ended up only going in a few stores but I did find some art.
The next three photos were taken in Anthropology.
These flowers and vines were all created with corks.

The were created on the walls so I couldn't get a close shot. I only took my cell phone on this trip.

Loved the moose.

I love street art. It's my favorite.
We stayed at the Acme Hotel Company and it was full of street style art. I loved it.
Soon as I saw the door I knew I would love it.
Front desk
The front window. My husband's favorite movie!
The elevators had album covers on one wall.
Emergency exit door.
Large canvas with hand prints were the headboards.
The extra sink. Loved the light fixture.
This is the nightlight in the bathroom. It's in the mirror.
We have to stop and look at Macy's windows.

This was one was cool. The snow would start blowing around and it would turn into another animal.

AND Christmas Outfits

The Saturday of Thanksgiving, my birthday, we saw Hamilton. What a fantastic show. It is a must see!
The worse part of the weekend is having to say goodbye to my daughter. She's not coming home for Christmas this year (first time) and it was very, very hard to say goodbye.
These large pieces are on the way to the airport from the trains.

Well, that's it. My next trip won't be until the summer. I hope you enjoyed all the art.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

FINDING ART can be as much fun as CREATING ART - Part 1

Hi Everyone!
Thanksgiving I spend the long weekend in Chicago.
My daughter graduated from Columbia College Chicago years ago and fell in love with the city and decided to stay.
Although I did bring a few art supplies, I didn't create much art.
Instead I decided as we were walking around I would find the art.
Here is a what I found on our first walk.

They are currently updating the walkways to cross the street.
I love this one.

You never know where you'll find art.
You have to look up-ways, down-ways, sideways, and crossways.

This one is gorgeous!

No real art but I love the contrasts of the buildings.
The blue building does look like a piece of modern art, doesn't it?

Some of the art belongs to students attending Columbia College so it changes year to year.
All this art was just on one street.
Stay tuned there's more!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Purple Water Lilies - SOLD

Hi Everyone!
I created this 12x12 canvas for a breast cancer event that was held in October.  The wonderful thing is that I sold it before the event.
It was very exciting for me and the event!

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with stencils and mediums to create this project.
The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them.
Created on a 12x12 stretched canvas, acrylic paints, modeling paste, and The Crafter's Workshop stencils (Koi Pond, Wildflowers, Lotus Blossom, Messy Script Bit)
Thanks so much for stopping by!
