Art used on set of FOX's "Past Life"

EDIT AGAIN June 2010 - Looks like FOX has again canceled "Past Life". It was fun searching for the artwork for the shows that aired. We were able to see 3 of the 15 images. Although I don't have screenshots of all the images, I do have this one:

 Luau Girl can be seen in the lower right corner in Dr. Kate McGinn's kitchen. (Character played by Kelli Giddish)





(update 5/28/2010)"Past Life", based on the book "The Reincarnationist" by M.J. Rose, premiered Tuesday, February 9th on FOX after American Idol. At that time, a few episodes aired, but then were replaced with another show.  I noticed today that the series has returned to FOX on Fridays at  8/7c. So, I will continue to run the contest for viewers who are the first to spot one of my artworks on the show.

Here's a recap:
In July 2009, set decorator, Frank Galline, contacted me about using some of my artwork in the new series. I was thrilled with the opportunity and am excited to see how the pieces were used on the set.

My artwork was used in episodes that taped in Atlanta. They began airing in the second episode. Below are pictures of the images that were selected for the show. Perhaps we'll be lucky enough to see at least one of them visible on the set.

CONTEST: Do be sure to leave a message if you see one of the images on the set. The more eyes the better. If you are the first to post on my blog, twitter or Facebook account after having seen one of the images, and you let me know in which scene you saw it, I'll provide a free print of the image, or one of the viewer's choice. This will be done for all 15 images. So, you have 15 chances to win. Good luck and keep an eye on the art! :)

HINTS : (update 2/11: I heard from Frank. He gave us one hint: two of the images appear on Kate's Desk...one on each of her desks. He also mentioned that all 15 images were used in some way. :) )
(5/28/2010 : At least one image appears in 'Saint Sarah". Be the first to tell me which image and where it first appears and you win a print of the image.)


Keep an eye out for : Two Originals "Soft Glow" and "Singular Beauty: Burnt" (Prints available here)




Tiles of "The Pond", "Hello Sunshine", "Marked Horizon" and "Luau Girl" (tiles can be found here)




Prints of Heaven and Earth, April Showers Brings May Flowers, Perched on High, Bee a Good Citizen, Beautify Your Community, Welcome Back Spring, Waves and Stones, Shakti Energy Goddess, Water Below and Fibonacci's Sunflower. (Prints of these images are available)

New Twisted Bangle Cuff Bracelets


I am excited to offer my art glass tiles as fashionable cuff bracelets. The buyer can choose any image from my existing art glass tile designs.

The twisted bangle adjustable cuff bracelets are made of heavyweight silver- or gold-plated metal. Each piece is signed on the back of the glass tile. The glass tiles measure approximately 1 inch square. They are not fully-waterproof so the jewelry should not be worn while showering or swimming.



Please see my shop for original artwork, custom-printed handbags and other handcrafted jewelry.

Choose from one of the designs shown below. (The images are my pendants, but the same glass tile will be used for the bracelets.)

Edible Art :: Fruit Bouquet for Birthday Party.



Today my daughter turned 6 and I made this for her kindergarten class. Took about 2 hours to prep, skewer and arrange the fruit. Took about 0.5 hour for 24 kids and a handful of adults to enjoy. There were a few skewers left over to share with other teachers, the school nurse and the assistant to the principal. It was perfect for this extremely hot day!

I used a watermelon, pineapple, honeydew, cantaloupe, bag of green and purple grapes, handful of blueberries, grape tomatoes, and a large package of strawberries.

We put 6 sparklers in the top and it was a great way to celebrate her special day. The kids really enjoyed it.
I told them it was not only celebrating the last birthday of the year (my daughter's), but also the end of the school year and the hatching of their butterflies in their classroom. (You might notice that some of the fruit are shaped like butterflies....one even has blueberry spots!)

In addition to the butterflies, I used heart, star and floral shapes. Special thanks to my friend Christy who had so many cool cookie cutters!

This is time consuming, but a fun project to do with kids. I've made these using sand buckets and watering cans. Makes a fun hostess gift, or a great dish for a summer BBQ/potluck that everyone will enjoy.
