I'm Back! Finally.....

I'm finally showing my words again. And I'm sure you thought I was busy painting, creating invoices, and recovering from 2 trade shows. Well, your right! All-in-all considering this crazy economy....I opened up some new accounts and met some wonderful new people along the way. I also took a few days off to spend with my family(the boys) since my hubby has been out of town. Of course, spending time with my boys involves football practice, football games, swim practice, sleepovers( I did have one night to was fabulous!), and we did manage a few games of scrabble. Well, I'll be back tomorrow, but don't know when, and for now I'm off to UPS!

Between Shows!

" The Raining Mister Elephant"
Size 20x20" x 1 1/2"
100% recycled canvas

So....I'm in between shows right now and my boys are on Spring Break, which I'm still adjusting to. I'm having a hard time getting invoicing done, painting, and other business needs due to football practice every night...thanks coaches! But, I thought I'd drop in to show all of you some new art that is being featured in LA, Ca. this week. I've been wanting to create a piece with an elephant for some time now but I just couldn't get it out of my brain. you can see, it finally came out. A cool lime lime green background with bright colorful rain drops landing on a cute little fun. This painting along with others are available on my main site here.

I'm also doing a huge Etsy shop update Monday morning full of new art ready for please check it out!

Well, I'm off to finish a commissioned piece before football practice and if your in LA, Ca. and you want to view some cool art by me, contact Brandi at THEA SHOWROOM.

Going to California!

Well, I'm not actually going, but my artwork is. I'm not going because my husband is going away on a male bonding trip with his family and I'm staying home to trek my boys to football practice.
Anyways....the Modern Owls above were created towards the end of last year and have been a great success. And along with 26 other pieces of art, they are going to LA. for a show at
I've been packing art all day and will be all weekend, for my last boxes will ship Monday. I am so excited about this new partnership and to finally have my art in my old stomping grounds, since I'm originally from Orange County. I also have some great news about the Modern Owls set. They have been recently selected to appear in a major magazine later this year, but I'm not spilling the beans on which magazine just yet...I'll keep you posted. boys are about to be home and nothing gets done after that....Have a great weekend!
