My art exhibit at the Nest was wonderfully exciting with a great turnout by the community.  There was lively entertainment, interesting wines and, of course, art to enjoy and purchase ( several paintings were sold).  I want to thank my friends and supporters for participating in the evening, I couldn’t have done it without you and I sincerely hope you had as much fun as did I.

I have exciting news for all my friends and lovers of art, wine and beer; there is a painting exhibition featuring my work in the sweet little beach  town of New Smyrna Beach, FL. My paintings will be exhibited February 15 at the Nest.  http://www.facebook.com/NestNSB?fref=ts . The show opening will coincide with a wine tasting event hosted by the Nest.

The Nest is a wonderful boutique housed in a compound of historic buildings and featuring an eclectic mix of unique new, vintage, collectible and hand crafted home furnishings and décor – and (this is the really fun part) – a lovely collection of wines by the glass and select micro brews. You can sip your wine or beer sitting at the bar nestled in the interior of the shop or take your drink outside to the beautiful courtyard, featuring impressive water and fire features.

I am excited and I’m looking forward to the event.  It should be lots of fun; wine tasting, live entertainment, light hors d’oeuvres and (tooting my own horn here) some beautiful paintings; all in a lovely garden setting.

Beautiful Vignettes

Beautiful vignettes may be defined as small and pleasing but they have a huge impact on the pleasantness of a space. Vignettes accessorize my favorite spaces, indoors and out.

Vignettes brighten my rooms

fabric vignette

Texture, pattern and form create beautiful vignettes in everyday places…

 

vignette on kitch shelf

and creative choices for storage creates a lovely vignette in my kitchen.

 

fish vignette

Carefully arranged collections create a lovely vignette, like this school of fish over my TV cabinet…

 

vignette with baskets

and a collection of my dads handcrafted hickory baskets fill that awkward space above the fridge.

 

mantle vignette

An eclectic mix of vintage mirrors and seaside finds grace the mantle of our beach-side cottage.

 

vignette with painting

One of my paintings acts a backdrop to a seaside inspired vignette.

 

vignette with produce

Fresh produce and flowers from the garden create beautiful vignettes for the table.

 

Beautiful vignettes grace my windows, enhancing views both in and out.

 Vignettes grace my gardens

garden vignettes

I love little unexpected touches in the garden.

 

garden vignette

Like the painting I used as a backdrop inside, one of my mosaics, tucked behind a collection of pots and plants outside, create an unexpected vignette in the garden.

So look around your home for opportunities to create beautiful vignettes and enhance the pleasantness to your own space.
