I have many friends who are unbelievable and add so many gifts to my life and my heart. Right now I would like share the artistry of two of them with you.
This is Patti Bray of PR Bray Designs, who I am so fortunate to count among my friends. Her talents fill me with wonder and (when I'm not walking my love walk) a little envy at times.
These are ceramic tiles, painted by Patti for a backsplash. She works a lot with dimensional tiles and creates a wide range of textures.
In addition to her work with clays and tiles, she does beautiful sketching and so very many other creative outlets.
If you have a few minutes, stop by her website and check out some of her work... this link opens to my personal favorite–her set of seasons (the ladies--each one is 3 separate tiles with some elements overlapping): http://prbraydesigns.com/sculpt_4.html
The next artist I would like to introduce you to is Carolina Elizabeth. There is just no end to this girl's talent! She paints, glasswork, sculpts, sews, metalwork/silversmithing, jewelry beading, sketches... and more! She has a blog http://carolinaelizabeth-art.blogspot.com/ that features her work and the artwork of others. Try to check her March 2 post to see some of her beautiful paintings. Please be sure to note the size of the pitcher--it is sitting next to a dime in the smaller photo. I am so lucky to own one of her incredible painted creations--a butterfly in a pendant of silver--my heart does a happy dance every time I get to wear it.
