Sis Boom Barbara


Painter and Earth Angels' artist Barbara Strawser was the special guest at Jennifer Paganelli's festive, and ever so colorful, SIS BOOM open house this weekend.

Rosie and Kathy made the trip to Wilton, CT with me to visit with Jennifer and Barbara... And we each got to bring home some textile treats along with a car load of glorious new paintings to share with Barbara's collectors and enthusiasts.

Here's Barbara's display on the porch...it greeted all of Jen's guests...


As ever, Barbara's work is rich in story and sweet memory. She paints in realm where flowers continually bloom and angels abound. Her layering of gentle water colors and temperas find their magic in old -- and often decorated -- frames.

Kathy loved this sweet and gentle piece...it's in an antique Belgian metal frame...

...these make me want flowers everyday...
...and I love the face on her young one here...
Thanks to you Barbara for the last year of working together. I am so cheered we've grown to share a wonderful friendship among us -- with Rosie and Kathy too. We adore you and your beautiful creations.

Jennifer, many thanks to you and much love for making it all possible!
Please visit my gal pal Danielle's BLOG to see more fab image of the event...she is a gem (and her blog www.thevintagedragonfly.typepad.com is always inspiring!)

Email Jennifer Paganelli for your invite to the next Sis-Boom open house and we'll see you there!
xxoo Jen O'Connor
