I have had love affair with art my entire life. I love making art, looking at art and I love finding new artists that inspire me. This past week I found my new favorite artist at the grocery store! I know it sounds crazy but it’s the truth.
My new favorite artist is Roxanne Spradlin. Many of you may know and love her work, however she’s new to me.
I cannot resist the “gift” isle of my new local supermarket.
They just started putting out all of the fall decor, so I was happily browsing when I saw two new paintings.
They remind me so much of home.
Growing up in Oklahoma you see a lot of cotton fields.
I posted this picture on Instagram and Stacey from Poofing the Pillows asked if it wasn’t a Roxanne Spradlin piece?
I had no idea, I just knew I loved it.
Imagine my surprise when Roxanne gave my pic a great big like!
So, I looked her up.
Y’all, I am in love with her work!! Seriously.
My favorite grocery also had these pumpkin plates.
They were way out of my price range, so I’ll be stalking them and praying for a sale.
I’m a big sucker for stuffed pumpkins so this herringbone pumpkin caught my eye also.
I love all three items in this picture.
The large serving bowl matches the pumpkin plates.
Look at the awesome plater. What’s not to love here?
Love the metal and wood that frame such a wonderful sentiment.
Of course, it’s a Mudpie!
And that pillow is too stinking cute.
Of course, I’ve been actually working here at the castle.
A girl can’t shop all of the time.
My latest projects are a couple of cedar chests and a dresser for a client.
This mark was on the back of one of the chest.
I couldn’t resist looking it up.
This company is still in business, smack dab in the middle of the French Quarter.
Don’t you love furniture pieces with a little bit of history attached to them?
This sweet table was gifted to me.
I’ll be making it into a desk for my sister’s new office.
Wouldn’t it be pretty in turquoise and gold?
It was such a pleasure to work with my favorite photographer!
My son, Tyler, who’s been in high demand recently.
He’s being featured as an up and coming photographer in a new magazine.
Super happy that I could talk him into taking some photos here at the castle.
And I’m an even happier mom to get to spend some time with him.
Until next time….
