As we "shelter in place", it's so important to stay busy and stay kind. "Air Hugs" are so awesome, and a smile and a wave don't cost a cent. Here are some little portraits which I have been working on, and I plan to do some more which you can view here. Stay healthy, stay happy and stay kind! Loving you all!
Postcards and Note Cards of some of my artwork are now available on Artspan
and Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MeMeCards
For the 6th year in a row my work has been selected for the Arizona Highways Magazine's Holiday Gift Guide. This year my "Terra Cotta Angel Ornament" was chosen.
The Snowman and Prickley Pear Ornaments were paired up for the 2018 Arizona Highways Gift Guide and in 2017 my pair of friendly Saguaro Ornaments were featured.
In 2016 my Terracotta Nativity Ornament was chosen,
and in 2015, the Christmas Javelina in a Santa hat took center stage. He can now be found foraging around the Javelina Section or with the ornaments. The Javelina ornaments were also featured in the Sedona Monthly magazine's December 2014 issue. It was hard to keep up with all the requests for them at the Sedona Arts Center. Those little "not a piggies" are so popular!
2014, my Southwest Nativity Set in the Arizona Highways' Holiday Gift Guide was a huge success, a total of 61 sets were ordered, that's 610 little figures! I feel very honored that they continue to choose my works for their publication.
As for paintings... "Two Flutes", was in the March 2013 issue of "The Artist's Magazine". It
was one of ten winners in the international "Over 60" competition.
