Back from Florida last Thurs., just in time to miss driving through snow (of all things) along I-10.

The trip was great. I loved being in my home state again and spending time with my brother, as well as some "old" friends I had not seen in many years. Also, enjoyed both art shows and learned aLOT, as always...

DeLand Fall Festival was a wonderful event and very VERY impressive as far as fine art goes. Some of the booths looked like mini art galleries, and the variety of work was excellent. The show included super amenities for artists... we were wined and dined the entire weekend! Thanks soooo much to the volunteers and staff for their hard work. DeLand is an artsy and very friendly little Florida town that I would highly recommend.

The Space Coast Art Festival in Cocoa Beach was also terrific. Again, a Wonderful variety of fabulous fine art, and the crowd was spectacular on both days. Weather was perfect. And it was so cool to see about 24 manatees sunning in a nearby canal! Plus, I won a merit award for one of my new pieces, "Fame", so that was a nice bonus.

Sunny (let's hope) Florida for Thanksgiving

mixed media collage

The ARToberFEST in Galveston last month was a fun success! Thanks to all the art lovers who showed up, especially for the great support from Houston.
Since then I've been getting ready for the drive to Florida next week in the *yellow submarine* for the DeLand Fall Festival, Nov. 21-22, and the Space Coast Art Festival in Cocoa Beach, Nov. 28-29... with plenty of beach and Thanksgiving in between. When I get back in Dec. I promise to post more of my work on here... until then... happy journeys!

ACEO originals, so much fun...

I can't seem to get away from making these little art cards. They are such a good way to use up leftover matboard, paint, and scraps of paper. I usually have about 20 in progress in various stages... I just can't throw anything away! The above are recently completed, available in my Etsy shop ---> http://www.sudiosu.etsy.com/. (Free shipping to U.S. and Canada!)

~~ACEO stands for Art Card Editions and Originals. Also known as SFA (Small Format Art), or ATC (Art Trading Card), this miniature art form is the size of a traditional trading card and can be stored in plastic trading card sleeves, or easily matted and framed in standard size frames.~~
