Perspicasity + Susie

What a dream of a collaboration! I have two designs available this spring at Perspicasity in Seaside.  I was just there and the umbrellas are out an they're adorable!  See below for a sneak peek of the palms which will make their way to the market soon.  Stop by for some peace, love and sandy feet...

New Year...New Adventures

2017 got off to a rocket start.  We are settling back in to life out of an RV and thankfully, work seemed to pick up right where it left off.  Before our trip, I began talking to Mollie at Well + Wonder Collective about joining her group of talented artists.  I took part in a show they hosted at Fritz Porter in Charleston and saw first hand how wonderful she would be to work with.  Things went on hold until I returned to Florida and here we are back home in 2017!  I'm thrilled to be able to officially join them and all the fun joint ventures they have in the works.  

 

 

 

 

 

The Wilds of west texas

Oh Texas... you always do my heart good.  

The Lone Star State was a good fit for me from the get-go. Having been raised in Louisiana and Alabama, Texas was like the bigger and slightly wilder cousin of the deep south.  I loved her from the very beginning. When I showed up at Baylor, I had never even visited - no tour no nothing.  I seem to remember my Dad saying something along the lines of, "If you've seen one college, you've seen 'em all."  Now if you can fall in love with the University Parks Drive exit in Waco in 1993 then it's all gonna be uphill from there.  We are talking pre-Magnolia and the embers were still hot at the Branch Davidian compound. What had I signed up for?  I was 12 hours from Bama and a long way from the beach.  All the French I took starting in Kindergarten in New Orleans wasn't really helping me out.  I truly wondered why Texas was misspelled on the water tower in Waco when it read Tejas.  I thought  I was headed in for an Italian dinner the first time I stepped inside Mi Cocina in Highland Park.  I'm serious.  This was all new to me.  Like foreign. 

Still something grabbed me.  Just as Jerry Jeff put it, it's the wide open spaces, the Bluebonnets, the Indian Paintbrush, the Frio, the spirit of the people,  and so on. He didn't even get around to mentioning the triple fiddle and BBQ.  Oh and another burrito.  There's always another burrito.  Seriously, I hadn't been in the dorm 6 months when my border town hallmates taught me how to make homemade tortillas.  Folks, have you ever really had homemade tortillas?  I'm not talkin' those sticky flat things that have been on the store shelf for months that taste like plastic on Taco Tuesday.  I mean the real deal.  Fluffy, fat, warm and made by someone who can seriously roll their Rs.  Now I'm hungry and have to go buy some lard which I've never seen at Whole Foods.

So back to the matter at hand... Here are a few pics of Texas from DFW to Presidio County way out west on the border.  It's beautiful. It's wild. It feels untouched. It's inspiring. It's soul renewing. I love it. Go there but tread lightly. Enjoy.

NEW WORK COMING IN APRIL

Meanwhile down in Florida...



I have been chipping away at my list of commissions this year and I am so thankful to be occupied and painting full time!  I finally made it a priority to leave space in my schedule to create new work along side my commissions.  New work is where I grow as an artist and it's so very fulfilling.  Many of you have emailed about new goodies and when they will be released.  I have several different series which will make their way to the website by way of Instagram towards the end of April.  Thank you as always for all the love and support!
