Join me at the Juried Invitational Exhibition…

I am very excited to have my art selected, from over 35,000 works of art, to exhibit in SoJie 4. SoJie 4 takes its name from the Solo Exhibition group’s Juried Invitational Exhibition. This month is only the 4th one, ever, and 55 other artists, besides myself, are represented.

Winners of the invitational will be announced on June 30th, when a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will be awarded in three categories: digital art, photography, and traditional art.

Non members, as well as members, ARE welcome to view all of the work nominated. So I hope that you will click the show banner, above, and follow the link to view my fellow exhibitors. The works are shown “gal…

One Year in BubbleTown!!!

WOW! How fast a year goes by when you’re having fun. Yes, it’s been one year since I first joined RedBubble in August 2008. Over the past year I have met so many wonderful artists from around the globe and viewed thousands of jaw-dropping pieces of art. It’s truly amazing what a great community RB is with the friendships made near and far, across the land and seas.

Some of my accomplishments over the past year: sold a mix of 30 cards, tees and matted prints, over 75,000 total views, with well over 300 features, many challenge wins and top tens finishes. I quit counting and journaling about them, but still add the info to the description. I host/co-host four groups that I truly enjoy as well as being a member of more than 300 groups…gasp!!

How has RB changed my lif…

Redbubble Devils Take Florida!!

After a long journey from Canada to south Florida, Rogue and Rascal finally arrived!! Woot!! I thought until havoc was rained upon me and my, once cozy, home.

Day 1

There were screams and wails about being hungry, so I decided a bit of fresh fruit might get them off to a good start. I turned my back to cut the fruit, never turn your back on them, and then I heard a blood chilling scream. R&R couldn’t wait and spied one of my Red Savina hot peppers (once rated as the world’s hottest pepper) and well there were lots of tears and screams about fire and water!!

Well all the screaming and crying brought the dogs around. They wanted to know what all the racket was going on. R&R fell in love with Bruiser, I think they thought he was a devil, too!

Kodie just didn’t know…

For PicISA - A Peek into my "Garden"

Isa this is for you!! A peek into my “garden.” What you see in these photos is where most of my flower and butterfly shots are taken. About 85% of all the plants are wildlife friendly to some extent, providing food and shelter. I have 3 birdbaths and several feeders for the birds and squirrels.

Some of the everyday and frequent visitors include many species of butterflies, Blue Jays, Morning Doves, Red-winged Blackbirds, Crows, Mocking birds, Cardinals, finches, squirrels, ducks, opossums, gopher tortoises, raccoons, lizards, anoles, frogs and snakes. I had a bobcat pass through the backyard one day which I thought was awesome, but didn’t stay long enough for me to get a picture. There are still a few left that roam the neighborhood.

I grow many Florida native plants for…
