That was our theme for this particular show. As you can see Alison Thomas of AKT Designs incorporated that theme quite well in her arrangement she did especially for us! She always does the most amazing centerpieces, etc. for all of our events!
Even with with chalkboard out front to draw in the masses….
To the incredible arrangement she did on the front door, everything was centered with art and fall in mind!
When Melissa arrived with her paintings the theme continued with her use of fall colors in some of my favorite pieces of hers!
This was the first time we had ever had our artists actually paint in the shop. People gathered around and it was truly fascinating! This is Melissa showing how she actually starts with her paintings on a flat surface and then moves them to the easel.
To all of us it seemed effortless!
She actually did two different paintings so here she is with the second one.
Lauren brought a wide variety of subject matter in her paintings and there was something for everyone!
She has started doing these smaller pieces on canvas and then framing them. ( she also has an incredible framing business!)
Here Lauren is getting ready to paint for everyone.
Again, it seemed effortless to her but amazing to all of us!
When it was time for Vicki to paint we cranked up the Country music and let it blare! Seriously…that's how she likes to paint and she names a lot of her paintings after certain titles or lines in the songs. I like to try to see if I can guess which song it is when I see her titles.
How cute is she? One of my sweet customers stayed to watch all three artists and during the demonstrations she remarked that all three of our artists are all so beautiful! And she's right! They are beautiful inside AND out!
Of course with every show we have we always have to have good food! This time I kept hearing people say it was better than ever! That's what we are always hoping for!
It is a tradition to have these fabulous chocolate chip cookies with sea salt! Everyone loves them! My sweet granddaughter came by after school with her mommy and thoroughly enjoyed them!
We had art displayed outside and in!
We were so full of art yesterday it was amazing!
Now we are full of fresh, new art and I'm sure many of the pieces won't be around for long!
Oh, and in the midst of all of that our beautiful hand blown glass pumpkins arrived!
So many pretty pieces were left for us to enjoy and sell to you!
At the end of the day, when all was said and done I took one more look at the beautiful flowers that Alison did and just took in everything that had gone on that day! It was a wonderful time spent with friends, family and artists!
We had three very lucky and extremely happy winners from our giveaway at the end of the day! What a treat! If you are looking for a piece of pretty art to brighten up your home we certainly can help you do that! Come see what's new at Mulberry Heights!
