Year of the Pig Exhibit

I’m so happy to be able to participate in this event.  Many local artists were able to paint and decorate a Mexican ceramic pig in their own special way.  Here is my piggy:

For those of you that live in the Tucson area, my little piggy will be Galeria Senita at Arte De La Vida until November 23rd, AND it just so happens to be a RAFFLE piggy.

So, stop by and buy a raffle ticket for a chance to win it! All proceeds will go to the Education Enrichment Foundation which  focuses on providing the basic resources necessary to keep students in school so they can focus on learning and engaging in school.

Day of the Dead Exhibit at Tohono Chul Gallery

Under the Crescent Moon

This is my contribution to the Day of the Dead exhibit happening now at Tohono Chul Gallery.  This image has a mock frame on it, but the original has a real, antiqued gold frame which looks really lovely on this piece. If you are in the Tucson area, you’ll have to go there and see it for yourself.

Happy Holidays!

I will be taking a short break over the holidays and will be closing my online shop until January 2nd.  I am excited to do a bit of relaxing, spending time with my family, making goodies and taking a teeny road trip.

For now, I would love to gift you these last minute gift tags.  I know I am always looking for these the night before Christmas while wrapping my kid’s gifts.  This time I am prepared and want to share them with you!  If you have some already, you can save them for next year 🙂

Wishing you a very happy holiday season!

Hello October!

Here in the Southwest, we finally had our first day of fall weather with rain and cool temps. It will warm up again for sure, but it sure was lovely!  I made the little painting above while blissfully listening to the rain.

And did you know that it is Art Season?  One of my favorite art collectors said to me the other day, “Have fun getting ready for art season!”  Her husband’s reply was, “There’s an art season? Is it like football season?”  It sorta is, if it means getting all excited about art!

Art Season is the time of the year in Tucson where we wake up from the sleepy summer heat and get ready for artisan holiday fairs. That means, lots of art making of all kinds.
