I want to revive my “Tuesday’s Treasure Chest” blog posts which I started a long time ago, but got out of the habit (sorry, I’ve neglected by blog and post frequently on Facebook). Let’s do this, I’ll start by sharing THREE terrific things that I treasure………..
First I’ll start with something you might not know about me, in the last year I’ve become an Artist-in residence (kind of). I had the opportunity to trade paintings for Ocean Isle Beach lodging. What did I paint? A mermaid, of course! The beach has long been a treasure of mine, I grew up seven miles from the Atlantic Coast. I’m looking for Artist-in-residence programs, haha.

Here comes the bride, well at least her shoes. I enjoyed painting “Jessica’s Wedding Shoes” after attending her fabulous wedding. Years ago Jessica and her family lived in our neighborhood, my how time flies, leaving treasured neighborhood memories.

Drawing is becoming a treasured and renewed passion of mine, here’s a new mermaid teapot drawing, thinking of painting it, what do you think? Carolina Artists’ Colony is having The Great Teapot Extravaganza in a couple of weeks so I better get busy if I want to enter.

We have a couple of sweet spots in Bladen County, Lu Mil Vineyard and White Lake. Bladen County is fortunate to have both. “Taylor Green” is a little oil I painted on site at beautiful Lu Mil Vineyard in Dublin, NC. “Clearwater Duck” is a little oil I painted from a friend’s photo that she snapped last summer at Clearwater Campground at White Lake, NC. One more big landmark is an 8×10 oil painting of the “Wam Squam” located at the intersection of Hwy 53 and Hwy 701 at White Lake. “Warm Breeze” and “Windjam” were inspired by some beautiful sails at White Lake last summer.
Last week I dropped these jewels off at Smellie Bloomers, a beautiful and unique gift shop in Elizabethtown, NC.
You will also find a few Easter bunnies and mermaid necklaces in my new little display at Smellie Bloomers,
Hope you enjoy looking, let me know what you think.
Happy weekend!

Thanks for taking your time to look at my blog.
I would like to share with you six hand-painted mini-canvases on 30″ chains. My friend Faye is quite the expert jewelry designer– thanks friend for your good eye and taking your time to match each painted canvas with the perfect colored beads. My hubby got in the action too- he mixed and poured the sealing epoxy that adds a beautiful shine to each one.
The last part of the hand painted jewelry was to decorate the backs–so I painted, stamped and wrote a special word on each one. No two necklaces are alike…. truly special treasures!
Happy Mother’s Day!image
