Flowers-to-Go! June 9, 2009
My next-door neighbor Kevin saw me processing flowers (that means cutting, pruning and conditioning new flowers and putting them in buckets) and asked me if I could whip up a quick, cup-holder sized floral arrangement that he could surprise his wife with it for their anniversary. Since he was going to pick her up at work before dinner, we thought it would be cute to have it ready there waiting for her in the car! In about 5 minutes I made this adorable bouquet in a bud vase! Love it! And of course, so did his wife Jamie!
Something really can be said for fine photography, it makes ‘everyday’ into art…
I love Thomas Slack’s photography because it is just that, ART. Below are all of the best shots from the Junkyard photoshoot I made bouquets for.

Vanda’s Orchid-Inspired Monogram June 4, 2009
I just finished working on some monogram options for Vanda (yes, that is the bride’s name AND the name of my favorite orchid). They are having a Thai/Vietnamese infusion wedding and incorporating bamboo and orchids into the decor and motif. Vanda asked that I incorporate orchids into their monogram, so I added some silhouetted ones to the designs. Once Vanda chooses her favorite of the above, I will be painting it on an aisle runner for her wedding next month.
Are you Artsy? Enter P.A.C.E. with Me! June 3, 2009
Above you can see the POSTCARD that I entered for the last PACE competition that got into their traveling exhibition. The show traveled for over a year and my postcard was shown in a bunch of different museums–so that’s cool. I also sold one of the other postcards I entered that time for $50 too! Not to shabby. I plan to enter 3-5 this time around. I encourage all other artists and photographers to check it enter!!! 🙂
