Well, how is everyone? I survived an unseasonable cold spell but it has returned to warmer weather again thankfully!
It wasn't a great day last Saturday before Mother's Day but hubby and I walked into town anyway to see the annual (15 years now) Mother's Day Sidewalk Art Show and had a great time! For my Mother's Day gift I got some art (I'll share my art for today at the end:):
First booth we stopped in was just the one I was looking for:
Grace Mugala and her husband. She wanted to show some attitude in this pic:) These paintings were all done by her husband so please click on her name to see just one painting of the stunning fine art painting she creates!!
Grace was a joy to chat with and granted me permission to share here. I have admired these works for some time but never bought cuz hubby said it just didn't fit with our home/style. True. But I always regretted not getting something small. So when I saw this booth here again this year that was it! Once our son moves out it will have a place right in front of me at my art desk in my once again art room:) It was hard to choose but this one kept coming back to me as it reminds me so of my very best girlfriends since childhood and the fun we have anytime we're together! I just know I'll be looking for another next year-or perhaps sooner. To contact her by phone: 484-767-5143.
Some booths did not allow any photos at all, and some weren't so friendly. But here's another fun booth I had been dying to see:
Donegal Square and McCarthy's Red Stag pub (which we go to quite often!) We know Neville well but I had never met his wife Linda until this day. Linda is an attorney by day and artist by night (and whenever else she can squeeze it in). This is the first time she set up a booth to sell her wares-gorgeous vibrant tiles , mosaic embedded glass bowls and such, and Celtic inspired framed glass pieces that look amazing with a light behind them!! It was so much fun talking with her and hearing about her special equipment and processes.
It was a great day and I was ever so happy to have art instead of flowers or anything else!
And now for my bit of art:
Here's a detail pic:
