Sunny Carvalho's Art

Sunday, May 29, 2011

I met an imaginative artist when we visited Mentone's Rhododendron Festival last week. Her name is Sunny Carvalho, and she is from Pinson, Alabama. She is a multimedia artist, and I adore her work. Please visit her website here and her blog here.

I bought this small painting to hang in our art studio for inspiration:


My daughter loves all things Manga, and one of Sunny's pieces had a Manga vibe to it. Sunny's art truly appeals to her, too. (I regret not buying that piece).

Please go visit Sunny's blog and say hello!

Until next time...
