Trunk Show

Happy end of October art lovers! 

 I just wanted to 
give you all a quick peek at a recent 
trunk show I did last month at 
Ed & Eva's located in Greenfield, Iowa... and extend
a special thank you to Catherine and Denise for helping to  
make it a success!
The drive to Greenfield was filled with fabulous rolling hills, 
quaint little farms and 
huge puffy white clouds.
Surrounded by other original artwork, my colorful works of art 
fit right in and really 
stood out against the newly refinished hard wood floors.
Of course I got to show my latest piece called "dream"...
and got to meet and talk to some pretty amazing people
who all made me feel right at home!

If you're ever in Greenfield, make sure you take a look
at the beautifully restored Opera House located next door!
And then, be sure to pick up some great gifts created by amazing
local artists selling at Ed and Eva's!
And as always...
"Have a great day"!

Paint Party Friday!

Happy Friday to all!
It's been a while since I shared my works in progress 
so today is the day!
The flowers are still in full bloom at my studio...
as are the bright colors!
I'm dreaming bigger then ever...
and am discovering new and exciting things
each day.  I'm working towards a show
to be called
"Indian Summer : In Full Bloom"
that will be finished next month.
Old paintings are getting new life again...
just like the blossoms of an 
"Indian Summer" take the place
of the scorched fields of July
and August!
I've started reading a fabulously philosophical classic 
by Ralph Waldo Trine.
This has been said to be
"one of the best motivational books
ever written." And who doesn't like
to be motivated on to greater things, right?!?
I love it and hope you will too...
I'm hopping back onto the
blog hop filled with
beautiful artwork and artists...
so follow the link and show your love!
Have a happy, inspired weekend...

Random Chatter~ Magical Color

"...their houses were tucked neatly
beneath the brightest colored flowers...
allowing only shimmering light to pass through...
and dazzle their days with 
magical color..."

Random Chatter~ World Traveler

World Traveler
by LolaBird
I am a world traveler~
constantly traveling around
the world on a fabulously
colorful road trip of fun.
Mixed media art journaling,
cafe visiting, coffee drinking...
hand made print making,
children jumping, flowers blooming, boots are sparkling
and I am home again!
Resting my wings
sipping my tea...
thinking of traveling~
becoming me!

Random Chatter~ Cup Cake Parade

Ocean Blue and the Cup Cake Parade
by LolaBird
Ride the wave
the wave of blue
but leave your footprints 
in the sand.
Follow the clouds, follow thru
stay true to your heart,
it knows what to do.
Flow with the pink,
sharp and brite
but leave out the glitter
for your Friday nite.
Use it freely...
without care,
sprinkle a trail on the back stair
so you can find your way home,
in case you're alone.
The cup cake parade might shock you a bit...
but don't worry
keep the candles lit
the frosting and glitter will make you smile
and forget your troubles...
just for a while.
