Nylo Hotel---Roxie's Artwork of Fire Storm

Nylo Hotel ---
If you are in Coppell - look at the Coppell Gazette Star-today.
I am on the front page thanks to Nylo and Jim Kilpatrick- staff writer.
Enjoy the article--
Nylo Hotel and The Company is really terrific , I met several people that work with Nylo and make it the wonderful Boutique Hotel that it is and will be in the future. A great group of young innovative minds for sure. The newest Hotel is at Mac Arthur/Royal Ln. in Las Colinas. It should be finished mid- July they say.
I will let you know.
My featured work for them is " Fire Storm", Mustang horses . They have also featured many other Texas artist that are super talented so please make sure you get to visit this Hotel in the summer of 09.

Keller Gallery- Art Party

Lloyd and I read about a new - up and coming artist center / Uptown in Keller a few weeks ago and decided to take a small road trip from Coppell to Keller and what a wonderful surprise. Its off of Southlake Blvd. - we took 114 to Southlake , turned left and went for miles past all the shops in Southlake and ended up in the quaint town of Keller.
The uptown is directly across from Town Center has has totally unique shops and Art Galleries.
Liz is the owner of Art Party - a great place for local artist to show their work. She was nice enough to invite me to join her Gallery last week--- so please come and take a look-see. She has some really great artist that are showing in her Gallery as well.
Take the time to go out one day or a weekend with the family and shop -- you will find some wonderfully unique gifts and art for really great prices. Fun, Fun, Fun.

Going Green

These are some of the recyled wine bottles I have been designing. Some are for sale at Corbon's Christian Gift Store here in Coppell and some are at Art Party in Keller.

Tuscany Hillside

This is one of my newest paintings. I love the flow of colors and the soft movement across the landscape. It was really fun to do especially using the different sizes of palette knifes.

New work

Well, spring is here. Along with all the pollen.
Lloyd and I worked in the garden most of the day.
I am still working on a few paintings , I really need to finish these before creating another.
I am looking out the window from my desk and looking at the beautiful pink buds on my peach tree. We purchased a blackberry -vine yesterday . Lacey my daughter wanted to have fresh berries this summer- she loves blackberries.
Its cloudy today and windy. I think I will stay in and work on getting paintings finished and starting another painting from a sketch I did over the weekend of my cousin Geoff, Mr. Comedian now. I can't wait to do this for him.
Have a wonderful day and enjoy all of Gods blessings. Take time with family- its so important.
Until next time- see ya!
