As Promised....Finally!

I got up early, took my morning walk and then headed over to the hair salon to take a photo. So finally here is what I put up in the salon....

A little bit of everything. Sorry about the color. It was difficult to get the right color under the lights. I tried to fix it a bit in my photo program. The walls are actually a soft golden beige.


And this is just one corner of Angel's studio. You can see the artwork reflected in the mirror.

Angel is great! I don't know if anyone reads my blog from this area where I live but if you do here is Angel's website with information about her. I know she's also on Facebook and she posted some other photos of my art on there but I don't have her FB page address.

*****************************************
And just in case you think all I do is make art, here is what I made over the long holiday weekend. I forgot to show you earlier....


This is spiced caramel pear jam! Doesn't that sound delicious! I haven't opened one yet to try it but I hope it's as good as the name sounds.

I have been buying Bartlett pears at five pounds for ninety-nine cents!! I had to think of something to do with some of them and this sounded like just the thing.

Okay I'm off to play in the studio today. It's supposed to be hot so I'm staying inside for the rest of the day.

  1. How nice they look! I like Josephine and the one below her. Number 4 in the upper row looks very interesting too. I really hope you'll get them sold. I'll cross my fingers for you.
    The best of luck to you.

  12. Your art looks lovely in the salon. What a treat for Angel's customers!

    And I agree, the jam sounds delish. I haven't made jam this year, but did cook up a huge batch of spicy apple chutney at the weekend. Yummy.

  13. Your work looks great on the wall of the salon. Whoever is lucky enough to sit in that chair next to the wall gets to really ruminate on your work while their color sets! :-) Good luck with this new venue for sharing your art!

  18. I didn't make it by yesterday...your art display looks great! The spiced caramel pear jam sounds intriguing and delicious! Our hot weather must have moved west...we are having very cool nights and the days have been moderate...today has stayed in the 70's.

  22. Your display looks wonderful Janet. What fun, to go to the beauty shop, and be able to come home not only looking fab, but with a little piece of art beauty to display in your own home. Sounds like a wonderful idea. I think you are going to sell them all!

  24. Hi there....glad you saw my post about the art scam. I have had a lot of response and am glad to get the word out there about this con artist.

    And, like I said before, your work is inspired. I love it!

  26. What a nice way to go about at posting your art in an hair saloon even.

    That was a great deal at 99 cents per pound for pears, almost sound like you stole them at that price. ha ha ha.

    I am not all of that fond of fresh or canned pears, but for some reason of another just those jars of jam looks like something I might try.

    I love the sound of that jam, yum
