Whole Foods Market artist gallery

Had to hang at 7:30 am which meant getting up at 6:00 am, I so don't do early. Anyways, it was worth it. Here is my work at Whole Foods Market. Not a good angle but you can see Organic Girl pretty good. A big shout out to Whole Foods Market at 91st and Metcalf , OP, KS, for inviting me to show my work in their gallery space.

Kansas City Fountain

This fountain was in an odd location- just inside of a parking garage. I couldn't get a good angle on it (because the garage was in the way!) so I took the best shot I could and then replaced the background with one of my own in Photoshop. I call her "Lady in Bronze".

Just a start...

This is only the beginning, the background for what's to come. I hope I get it done in time. I am making it specially for my art display at Whole Foods Market. It will have a girl with a fruit basket and good words like- organic, local and eat raw. Or maybe I will do something different, who knows.

If you are in the Kansas City area, stop by Whole Foods at 91st and Metcalf and take a look. My art will be there from 2-18 thru 3-31.While you're there get some of their Smoked Mozzarella Pasta Salad and a bottle of Kombucha and you're good to go.

This is a fountain in Kansas City. I honestly don't know how all the marigolds got in there. Perhaps people were using it for a wishing well and the marigolds were more abundant than coins. I fished out as many marigolds as I could, threw them all in at once and started shooting wildly before they moved swiftly away.

Kansas City Sunset

My love of photography has taken a back seat to my art lately, and that's ok. Sometimes it's the other way around. I really need a break from this cold blistery winter so I thought I would post some of my photos during the warmer months here in my hometown of Kansas City. Oh Spring, where the heck are you?

More Funky Girly Bookmarks

I love purple. She looks good in it too. This one is fabric, acrylic paint, a clay face and yarn hair. As always, I do my bookmarks on mat board.

Funky Girly Bookmarks

Another Funky Girly Bookmark. In this one, I used all fabric (no paper) except I painted the shoes. Her face is made from clay and her hair is yarn that I braided. I also painted a background on the mat board.

Funky Girly Bookmarks

I will post a few of these bookmarks over the next couple of days. They are fun to do and make fab gifts. The face is dimensional, made from clay, and her head peeks out over your book when closed. I cut them from mat board- free hand with a mat board cutter. On this one I used fabric, paint and yarn. Plenty of room to write a message on the back too.
