Nothing makes me happier than knowing my little prints have found happy homes.  It’s fun to see how people mix and match to make their own collections…and I sooo appreciate when people take the time to send me shots like this!  (makes my day!)  I’ll be posting an album with many more shots to my Facebook Fan Page if you care to take a peek…

Lee Lee’s Sweet Iced Tea that is… (16×20) to be exact.  It won’t be staying on my mantle though.  This one will ship to the wild west of Wyoming, the  home of Victoria Bennett Beyer! I can’t think of anything sweeter!  If you haven’t been following her photo laced blog, or visited her online store, you are truly missing out.  It’s always an honor to have another artist appreciate your work.  Thanks Vickie!

Had an all around great weekend…on Saturday, I finally had a chance to check out the Starland Farmer’s Market, and meet Robin Lynne, who happened to have a nice selection of work there.  I purchased my first ever ACEO’s from her, and I love them love them love them!  I can’t wait to get them matted and framed…

I also had a few minutes to work on the Pirate’s House mural…

Lastly, I woke up this morning to an etsy convo from Ms. Milemarker herself…she noticed that someone else used Lee Lee’s Sweet Tea in a Treasury, and was so kind as to make me aware of it…so far as I know, this is only my second treasury on etsy…be sure to check it out!

and now it’s time to get the heck out of here, and go paint!  Hope you all have a lovely Monday, and thanks for reading 🙂

Melody Martin! Congrats!  Special thanks to all of you who entered!  It was great fun, and I look forward to many more contests in the future…so be sure to check back once in a while 🙂

Just to show the true randomness of the process…here’s how it worked.  I assigned a number to each entrant, by the order in which they left comments.  Melody, just happened to be number 12.  With the help of this little site, I generated the winning number…

And there you have it!  Anywho…hope you all had a stellar weekend!  Nick and I spent some time in Hilton Head with his folks, and fried our little faces, but it was great to take some time to enjoy summer in all it’s glory!

hugs, and thanks again to all who participated in this little project!

Can you believe it? I’ve been pluggin’ away at this whole blog world now for a good 365 days. I never dreamed when I started this little adventure, that people would actually find interest in the life of a quirky southern artist…let alone that it would introduce me to so many wonderful friends, artists, colleagues, interesting folks, and more. Within one month of starting this little blog, traffic had more than doubled to my website, and has yet to drop since!

I am incredibly grateful to all of you who have subscribed to this blog, shared your comments and well-wishes with me, posted links, and spread the word! It’s been an incredible journey, and the only way I see fit to thank you all…is to have a Blog-A-Versary Give-A-Way!!! I picked the following Foodie Print for two reasons:

1. I’m drinking it for breakfast…(much like Lee Lee used to do)

2. Lee Lee’s Sweet Tea was one of the original Southern Girl’s Cookbook illustrations, that landed me the gig with the fabulous Skirt! Magazine, and sparked my interest in Food Illustration. So there you have it…
