Amazing one-of-a-kind necklace made by my friend Kris Halter of Mindful Designs. Her work is off the charts - she has such a unique style and deeply creative design sense. Plus the most unusual elements and a lot of pieces are big and chunky! Love that!
I love colors and I wasn't disappointed when I saw the cool and colorful booth of Hot Glass Cool Art! Artist Faith Wickey makes beautiful and bright lampwork jewelry and fused glass objects. Her stuff is hot!
More bright colors caught my eye - these amazing pictures were created with magic makers by teacher turned artist W. Michael Winston. He studied art right out of high school, then gave it up to go into teaching, a few years ago he took out some markers and started to play around. Today he shows his beautiful art throughout the Northeast. Marker Magic!
Last but not least, near the end of the art walk, were these fabulous purses by Kensington House. Artist Pamela Sapp makes all these by hand with beautiful quality fabrics with awesome designs. I bought a very cute little black and white shoulder bag! Very cool!
It was fun to be out in the summer sunshine surrounded by art and the creative spirit. It fortified me for the rest of the weekend - working in the basement - painting, cleaning and purging. Like eating desert first!
