Big week! I had a meeting at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center in Fullerton, CA, with the woman who runs the gift shop and they are now carrying my scarves. Yay! The Muck (as they’re known around here) has an exhibit that opened this week on Korean textiles, which is pretty yummy. So if you live anywhere nearby, are at all interested in textiles and fabric art, or are looking for something lovely to do, its a terrific exhibit, and the gift shop has some great scarves for sale1
I also have 17 of my watercolors hanging at the Environmental Nature Center in Newport Beach, CA for the month of February. This lovely oasis of nature sits next to the sports fields at Newport Harbor High School. Originally unused land where dirt was deposited from grading for construction at the school, it has been shaped and nurtured for years and is now a center that ” provides quality education through hands-on experience with nature. The ENC’s 3 1/2 acre outdoor classroom displays 15 native plant communities that range from a desert, to a freshwater marsh, to a redwood forest.” I’m showing pieces from both my “Blossoms” and “Tapestri” collections, all with floral subjects of course. The ENC is located at 1601 16th St. in Newport Beach, and my paintings are hanging in their gift shop “Nature’s Gifts”. They are open M-F from 8 am – 5 pm, and Saturdays from 8 am – 4 pm.
Last but not least, this new scarf is now available at my Etsy shop, along with more scarves, small paintings, notecards and limited edition reproductions. In case you want something for your Valentine?
I am about to print a new set of my notecards, and I want to hear from you. Above are six images of my coffee cup series of paintings, with numbers below them. You can be a part of the selection process by choosing the four you think would make the best set to reproduce as the new set of notecards. I want your input!
How? Simply use the COMMENT link below, and send me the numbers of the images you think would make the best set of four cards. Please just vote once!
The voting starts now, and ends at noon tomorrow, June 29, 2010.
SPECIAL PRIZE: When the votes are tallied, the names of two of the voters who picked the final four winning images will be drawn from a hat to receive a set of the cards.
