Marie Amos's Fun Summertime Art

Monday, June 6, 2011

I want to share with you two wonderful art prints Marie sent to me:


Aren't they great!  They remind me of all the summers we spent riding beach bikes in Seaside, Florida.

Marie is such a wonderful artist!  Her art has a certain "Je ne sais quoi" that I adore.  I like her fairy art;  they are neat, too!  Please visit Marie at her blog, Fourborne Art,  here.

My daughter, Shanley, wants to take both of them to school with her this fall, but I told her she could only have one (she wants to put one in her bedroom and one in the living room of her dorm suite).   I ordered a couple of frames for them, and one was backordered.  Mr. Art@Home made one of the frames for me.  {He is such a rock star.}


This is the frame Mr. Art@Home made.  I like the yellow and green on it because it compliments the daisies.


Don't forget to visit Marie!

I am joining Nita @ Mod Vintage Life for her new linky party, Mod Mix Monday.


Until next time...
