Dragonflies for your home



I happened to read this poem
 "In The Flutter Of Gossamer Wings",
here's an excerpt;
"Comes in many shapes,sizes and odd colors,
flying in such grace on those gossamer wings,
this sleek dragonfly,when seen,my soul stirs
for God in his splendor created such things!" 
Rick Fernandez Sr. 
Dragonflies buzz about my yard and pool nowadays however my first experience with them was at the "pond" that I frequently share about from my childhood. 
Older kids used to talk about them and damsel flies with fear filled wives tales that they would sew your mouth shut. Why the dragonfly would bother to do that I do not know. (insert laugh). Do you recall that tale?  

The above piece "Cattails and Dragonflies"
 can even be carried with you as your phone case


The Odonata come with much symbolism; hope, self realization, looking deeper, living life to the fullest.
What story or symbolism have you experienced with dragonflies?


The matching piece to this has a purple water lily.


I like the contract of the deep blue dragonflies against the
light blue sky and teal water. This piece "Purple Water Lily and Dragonflies" 
is also available in pillows, duvet, totes, shower curtains and prints.

Featured artist of the Week on #Artworkarchive



Sometimes there are surprises that happen that can really make the week brighter and better, and this surprise of being the featured artist of the week via Artwork Archive has given me such an uplifted feeling and makes me glow a bit. You see, I was traveling last month, when I received the call that my mother had a series of strokes, I flew to her at the hospital. I stayed with her through rehab, and in her home. Now a month later I am back at my home in Florida with her. This has been a very hard month, so when I received the notice of the feature via email I missed it, however I did not miss the post on instagram which lead me to reading that I was featured, then I found the very nice email from Artwork Archive regarding the feature. I truly needed this boost. I am quite grateful.

Artwork Archive is the database specifically created for artists that I absolutely adore using for my art, collectors and galleries. I can access it wherever I am online. I can do labels, mailings, pricelists, gallery and consignment lists.  The other feature they have is called Discovery.   I can choose which piece in my database become public and can share pieces from the site online - see this is my public page.  The feature has me on their twitter banner, their instagram   and on their facebook banner too!

Good news! My mother is doing quite a bit better!

Happy Leap Day!

Happy Leap Day! Is it Leap Year? It is !


Wishing you a Happy Leap Day!


Did you know there is a Leap Year Capital?

Anthony – Leap Year Capital of the World

Anthony, Texas, in the United States, is known as the “Leap Capital of the World”. Every leap year, this tiny town hosts the Worldwide Leap Year Festival.
Hmmm never knew this 

Gloves Hide Naked Ring Finger

In some places, leap day has been known as “Bachelors’ Day” for the same reason. A man was expected to pay a penalty, such as a gown or money, if he refused a marriage proposal from a woman on Leap Day.
In many European countries, especially in the upper classes of society, tradition dictates that any man who refuses a woman's proposal on February 29 has to buy her 12 pairs of gloves. The intention is that the woman can wear the gloves to hide the embarrassment of not having an engagement ring. During the middle ages there were laws governing this tradition. from Leap Day Customs
