AZ FINE ART EXPO – HOME AWAY FROM HOME

It seems like only yesterday when I said goodbye to AZ Fine Art Expo 2014.  After all, I was there every day for 10 weeks – every day!

The same is true for this year’s  AZ FINE ART EXPO 2015 which begins Friday, January 16 and runs through the end of March. You can expect to find me there  working on something new and exciting.  My double booth is set up to display an array of my watercolor paintings including many that are new.

Besides the originals, I am offering limited edition giclee reproductions, beautiful, luxurious pillows, greeting cards, hand painted ornaments with new garden themes and, new this year, hand painted glassware and mini watercolors.   Everyone will be able to bring a piece of Bonine home.

I am excited about this years showing and seeing all of my friends and lovely patrons again. So, be sure to come and see me and my new work along with a 100 other fine artists on the SW corner of Scottsdale Road and Jomax, Scottsdale AZ.  Hours are 10 – 6 daily.

To make sure you don’t miss me, call me ahead of time at  602 692 0099.  I may be out delivering a sale!

Purchase your Bonine Treasure at Carefree Fine Art & Wine Festival

Finally fall is here, in fact the weather is about to change this weekend to perfect days and cool nights.  What a perfect time to visit me at the Carefree Fine Art and Wine Festival on the streets of “downtown” Carefree.  Hours are 10 = 5 daily and I will be there with lots of new works, some of your favorites, and more.

If you are not adorning your walls this fall, don’t let that stop you.  In my space you will find Bonine luxury throw pillows, a new edition of hand painted glass ornaments and, NEW THIS YEAR,  a limited amount of hand painted glassware.  All of these are at affordable prices for the perfect holiday gifts.  Last year ornaments sold out and I expect they will do the same again as well as my new glassware.     So, don’t wait until they are all gone!

Next week I will have  a photo of my glassware on my  blog for those who can not make the shows.

Look forward to seeing all of my friends again.

HIDDEN IN THE HILLS IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER NOVEMBER 22-23-24 AND NOVEMBER 29-30-DEC 1  Getting ready to open my home and studio as part of the Hidden in the Hills Artist Studio and Sale.  My works will be displayed throughout my home and the garden cottage.   Works of  Craig Bergsgaard, Bronze Sculputure , and Jess Davila, Stone Sculpture will be featured in the gardens.  You won’t want to miss this stop on the tour  (Studio #19) as three seasoned and reputable artists gather together to show you their finest!

New for me this year are my luxurious  throw pillows taken from my watercolor images.   These will add a special touch to your home and  art collection.   They are irresistible and an alternative for those who have no more room left to hang my work.    My  glass heirloom ornaments are keeping me busy as each one is hand painted , signed and gift boxed in a gorgeous presentation.   They make great gifts for the special people on your holiday list , and you, too, will want to have one or two for yourself.   I am having a hard time keeping up with these  hand painted beauties as those who have stopped by to “see” are walking away with several at a time.

Of course I have new watercolors that will blow you away with new color schemes and elongated formats.

The garden is  so lush and rich with foliage this year that I can’t wait to show it off.   You should plan on being  at this studio  for a while.  It is not a stop that you will be in and out of quickly.
