Ok, I have to say, it does not take much to make me happy. I found a couple of things that make me smile, and I have to mention them. The first thing is this absolutely gorgeous painting by Carrie Goller on my OAOE Team. All I can say is WOW!!! When I win the lottery, this painting is MINE! :-) Just look at the detail, the colors, the richness, the reflection in the paint....oh, I could go on and on.... Take a look - and yes, it is Kiwis............what can I say? :-) Got to love those Kiwis! Here is a link to her Etsy store, if you would like to see more of her wonderful work. http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5706223
While posting about Carrie, I have to tell you - you must go to our OAOE Team blog and look at all of these wonderful artist. They are simply amazing!

The second thing I have to mention is my own work of art. Yes, I have to brag, but not because I did it, but because it was so much fun to do. I painted this little glass for one of my favorite shops Funky Monkey. I just love her shop, and her shop banner. Lucky me, she asked me to paint her special Funky Monkey glass. This is how it turned out, and I was very impressed. Thank you so much Funky Monkey for giving me such a fun sale!

Last of all, I have to mention my dear friend Claudia from Cloud Nine Creations again. She has turned out another favorite for me. I just love her rings and her blog! Here is a picture of her latest ring, and the links to both her store and her blog. Have fun looking at all of her rings. Now, I have to tell you, I own at least 6 of her rings now!!! Wow! I am addicted to her work! Way to go Claudia! Her blog: http://cloudninecreationsjewelry.blogspot.com And Claudia's store: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5196278
Thanks for taking the time to look at a few of my favorite things. I have had such a good weekend with friends and family. I hope we all have a good week ahead of us as us Gwinnett County people prepare for Spring Break! wahoo! I plan to get lots of things painted, memorize my lines for the play coming up, prepare for my daughter's recital, and REST before the CRCT when we return to school.
Kiwi-Arts was founded after a long journey of visions.
One morning I awoke with a strong urge to experience paint. I wanted to feel the paint in my hands, I wanted to touch the brushes, and I wanted to mix colors all day long. I loved the feeling of paint on different surfaces. I developed a desire to apply paint, and scrape it off again, only to continue this process as visions began to reveal themselves. I studied art/painting at Spurill Art Center for the Arts in Atlanta Georgia under the direction of Chery Baird and started to fulfill my desires of freedom.
My paintings are painted by seeing beyond the image itself, and my desire to express freedom. All of my paintings are a spiritual journey and my hope is that my audience is able to feel this journey as they view my pieces.
My goal is to inspire others through my passion for life. My wish for you is to find peace within yourself, and that you listen to the small voice that is within us all. Share positive energy, and fuel others by it. Do not hold onto negative feelings, and express yourself through your given talents.
