It was two years ago, I believe, a friend of mine got married. Her and her husband-to-be were together for several years before tying the knot. I made them a mixed media assemblage piece on a 12x12 canvas panel incorporating all kinds of cool bits and pieces that I had and used their wedding colors of purple and cream as the main colors for the piece. I always had a love for mixed media, I was doing it before I even knew the term. I came across Finnabair in my internet wanderings and was greatly inspired. If you've never seen her work, please check it out! It's amazing! So drawing on her pieces as inspiration and my own love I did up this canvas panel commemorating the marriage.

Every once in a while you'll get a customer that just makes your day. We have a long time customer who brings us some cut flowers every other week or so in the summer until the fall weather comes and the flowers are gone.

The dahlias are the best, in my opinion, because they come in so many sizes, shapes and colors. It's always a treat when he comes in early in the morning with his fre
sh cut flowers ad we get to divy them up and place them on our desks. The last bunch was brought in a few weeks ago and I decided to try out the camera on my new phone. I thought they turned out pretty well, and here they are for everyone who cares to look. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
