Two Furniture Makeovers Plus My Celebrate Art Series Photo Collage

Hello to all of you!
What have you been up to?


Colors are Beaufort Blue and Thomasville Teal

I'm VERY overdue for a blog post!
May is a crazy month for all of us, isn't it?
We are starting to settle in to summer and as I'm writing this out, we are in Tulsa for a baseball tournament.

I've been a painting fool and wanted to share my latest furniture makeovers and also some paintings from my series, Celebrate.
DIY Paint from Debi's Design Diary in Apothecary and Bohemian Blue

Oh, and also my newest hat from Mexico, courtesy of Mom.

This Is The Best Way To Do Pink Plus a Little DIY Video

Hello, All!

I hope everyone is getting to enjoy this lovely Spring weather. I've been painting like a wind storm and am excited to share several new things with you.

First, I found this app called, Hyperlapse, and used it while I 
painted this antique wardrobe. 

I've been looking for a good way to add little clips like this on 

my Facebook page. There are so many days I wish I could move this fast. 

Have a look at the finished piece!

I used four colors of chalk / clay paint from Debi's DIY Paint to create 
this soft buttery shade of coral pink.  The colors are Carnival Red, 
Kissing Booth, Cowboy Coral and Queen Bee. Oh, and I also
 used a thin layer of their white wax...that's the best part.

Lastly, here are some of my newest paintings.  All of these are available as of today, on my website, The Turquoise Iris.

I am the lover's gift; I am the wedding wreath;
I am the memory of a moment of happiness;
I am the last gift of the living to the dead;
I am a part of joy and a part of sorrow.

But I look up high to see only the light,
And never look down to see my shadow.
This is wisdom which man must learn.

~ Song of the Flower XXIII by Khalil Gibran

Have a good one, my friends.

Summer Haven Art Series - Originals

It's go time!

YOU are invited to preview AND shop my art release,
 Summer Haven, before anyone else!
Many of you asked if I'd offer a pre-sale or pre-release. Being the hustler, ie...crazy person, that I am, I have my new paintings all set and ready to purchase, so I figured why wait?

Beginning at 9:00 a.m. cst Saturday, April 29th, my art will be available to purchase,

This series is  very special to me and 
it reflects my favorite season. The words summer haven may mean many different things or places to people. I tried to touch on my personal most favorites. All of my precious moments are shared with family and friends.

I hope you find a piece that will take you back to a special place or remind you of a memory. Better yet, maybe you'll grab your computer and book your next summer vacation.

Bless you all for your continued support and loyalty.
