A beautiful morning at Tucson Coffee Roasters! Friends from different parts of my life came, showing support for me and this new coffee house. It was an awesome opportunity to share new art as well as catch up! From iced coffee to prickly pear ice tea – the subjects of my paintings were as diverse as the selection of drinks.

I remembered to take some photos towards the end of the event to share with you!

The clean and fresh feel of Tucson Coffee Roasters was a perfect backdrop for my new art. Lots of friends from my Mom’s group came to see it!

Besides painting the Desert Dwellers series – I enjoy hand-letttering and painting to create whimsical pieces perfect for the home, office or kid’s rooms! The originals are for sale at Tucson Coffee Roasters and prints of “Love”, “Creativity”, “I’m Not Messy” and “Dream it and Do it” are available online!

I am thrilled with how my original “Desert Rose” painting was framed. I used Mo’s Gallery & Framing and I has the best customer service. This is one of the frames Corinne from Mo’s picked out. I knew immediately it was the perfect complement to the painting!
