This is one of the morsels that will be at Saturday's reception

"kids korner". The artist gave me permission to recreate her art for 
the background, so if the piece is sold then Ms. Zoe gets 
a commission! 

Here is the information on Saturday's reception. Or if unable
 to attend, one may purchase ZOE'S BLING 2 online by 
clicking on "add to cart" and the piece will be mailed to you.

Sadly time flies where life caught up with me. 

I've been missing for so long, but unfortunately my iMac 
died some time ago, and has taken me some time replacing 
software and computer. Isn't technology amazing? 

So nearly up and running and thought I better resurface. 
The above pastel is an older and favorite of mine. If you've
ever visited New Mexico, would be familiar with Taos Pueblo. 
The serenity and spirits of the place is overwhelming, with
a wonderful setting of blue skies and white clouds.   

Thank you for sticking by me and will be here more often. 
New art coming your way!
