Elizabethtown is a charming town, with a beautiful cutie pie flower and gift shop. Smellie Bloomers on Broad Street, hosts a bounty of unusual and beautiful gifts, I call it “eye candy”. Next week I’ll be offering Valentine paintings and cards, in the mean time I need to say good bye to my Christmas paintings. Take a look, everything is 25% off, but this sale will not last long.

I love this time of year when there is so much cheerfulness and happiness in the air.  I’ve been really busy painting and I am enjoying listening to Spotify as I paint on my Christmas commissions. I love those cheesy Lifetime and Hallmark Christmas movies too when I finally get to unwind in the evening.

My hands are in water constantly and when I find a good thing I like to share, so I’m passing along a really good hand soap and lotion( like the soap better than the lotion)………from Bath and Body!  The hand soap is so creamy and it’s whipped, it feels like you’re washing your hands with lotion, it’s not drying at all.  As much as I wash my hands, that’s a plus, I might have to stock up on this and use it all year long!soap

And here’s some exciting news! I owe people that went to Chambers’ Arts in Cary and voted for my painting “Cassie’s Dream” a big thank you.  It won “Peoples’ Choice Award”, happy and grateful that this is the second “People’s Choice Award” that I have received in three months. This painting came about when a young lady posted a yummy cupcake on Facebook.  I messsaged Cassie and asked her if she would take a few more pictures, she did and I had fun painting “Cassies’ Dream”. Thanks Cassie! http://chambersarts.com/2012/11/28/french-kisses-peoples-choice-award-kathy-bunns-cassies-dream/

The Bridges of Madison County…..a good short read for a long hot summer

Here’s a good book It’s a long hot summer folks here in the south and one of my favorite things to do (when I’m not painting) is to read down by the lake,  so I wanted to share one of my great summer books , “The Bridges of Madison County” by Robert James Waller. The story is about Robert Kincaid, a photographer searching for covered bridges and a housewife Francesca Johnson who is searching for girlhood dreams.  One true love, covered bridges and dreams you will encounter in this short read.  I really truly recommend this book, I’m taking it down to the water today to reread as I always do each summer….. the book is worn and coming apart, but still has magic………..kind of like life at times?

Christmas in July….and there will be angels

Every Christmas I create a new series of paintings that I sell at Smellie Bloomers, a local gift shop in Elizabethtown, NC.    The first year I painted Santas, the second year I painted snowmen and last year I had a reindeer theme.  Each year I listen to my friends and family and get ideas from them as to what Christmas subject they would like to see me paint. I am happy to announce this will be the year of angels, afterall couldn’t we all use a few more angels in our lives? Okay, let me get back to my easel and continue on one angel that I’ve already started……….ooooh, I think there might be an angel give-away coming up in the future, what do you think?

 Colorful Frivolous Pedi

 

 I love to use bright colors in my paintings and last week I decided to give myself a pedicure. Voila! The bright colors found their way from my palette to my toes.  Happy lazy days of summer to all of you, thanks for stopping by!
