My scarf line has its own new name!

These are three of the new scarves I’ve been painting, of butterflies and dragonflies, for the upcoming Spring Faire and Butterfly House Opening at the Environmental Nature Center in Newport Beach, CA.  On Saturday, May 5th, come celebrate the annual opening of their Butterfly House and see the butterflies that have come out of hibernation and/or a chrysalis!  Lots of great art, and lots of great things for the kids, too.  

May 5, 2012,  1o am to 3 pm.

Look for more scarves soon too on my new Etsy shop:  BloomingSilks on Etsy


I’m showing my scarves at an event at the Environmental Nature Center in Newport Beach next month, its their Spring Faire celebrating the annual opening of their Butterfly House.  Of course the scarves that feature flower designs are wonderfully Spring-y, just right for the show.  Then I started thinking about making some scarves to celebrate the reason for the event, and started trying out some designs.  These are shots of some of these new pieces as they’re drying.

Now, I like butterflies as much as anyone.  I really have a proclivity to dragonflies and damselflies, those lovely double winged, long-bodied, brightly-colored mosquito eaters, which were always around in the spring and summer, flying around our pool while we swam the days away. Even my doorbell plate is an Arts and Crafts-style dragonfly design.

And here’s some orange butterfies too  (taken with a flash, so these look yellower than they really are).

So if you’re near Newport Beach, CA on May 5th, come on by the Environmental Nature Center from 10 am to 3 pm and try on  my scarves, along with all the other artisans work that will be showing that day, and visit the butterflies too!

The ENC is located at 1601 • 16th St. in Newport Beach, just off Dover Dr., next to the sports fields of Newport Harbor High School.
