I found this wine box made of wood and decided to make it beautiful. It would make a good jewelry box. I've always loved things with lids since I was a kid, so painting this was a trip! It's Memorial Day weekend, so it promises to be busy here in Myrtle Beach. Hope you all are having fun wherever you are!
I'll be showing my art this coming weekend, Mother's Day weekend, May 8 and 9, 2010 at the Dunwoody Art Festival in downtown Dunwoody, Georgia, outside Atlanta. Come see me if you are so inclined. It promises to be a great festival!
We had a wonderful time in Richmond at Arts in the Park this past weekend. Lots of art went home with new adopted families, and we got to make people smile and laugh a little through the heat. It's a blessing.
I once read about a woman seeing a message sprawled on a Paris sidewalk. It said, "The city of Paris is full of beautiful mysteries, and you are one of them." I never forgot that story. I began to think how wonderful it would be to spread love and joy by writing beautiful messages on sidewalks with chalk. That idea has evolved into the original poetry I often include on my art, and is the reason I call myself “The Sidewalk Chalk Prophet.”
