Sis-Boom and Barbara Strawser Part 2 of 2....FEATURED ARTIST OF THE MONTH!

...on Monday we took a quick peek back at the holiday open house of my wonderful and talented fabric designer friend Jennifer Paganelli of Sis-Boom....

The chain of friendship extended from Jane Dagmi to Jennifer and then Jennifer shared her style and savvy and yes, even her friendships with me...
This unraveling of relationships and connections is a certain magic...
Jennifer has Barbara Strawser's works around her home and has been a dear friend to Barbara for many, many years...

So, shortly after I visited Jennifer for the first time and feel in love with Barbara's works,
(search this blog for Jennifer Paganelli and peek at the many older posts...) I started to work with talented folk painter, Barbara.
 But it has been some time -- too long in fact -- 
since I have seen Barbara to buy her work from her...
she is quite old-fashioned and does not do email or digital images 
so I have to see Barbara to pick up paintings and she lives hours away...
so happy day! We got to spend some time together, once again, thanks to Jennifer Paganelli!!!

 a peek at her simple watercolor box...
and some papery supplies...she makes such magic from such humble things.

 Here are some of my faves...these are happy stuff....
and we are honored to feature Barbara 
as January's "HOME PAGE FEATURED ARTIST"...





Thanks to you Jennifer for bringing Barbara and her magic into my world...

 

xxoo Jen
