While I enjoy working with photography, graphic design and literature, there are some artistic ventures that I stay away from other than for the purposes of silly fun. One of those is drawing.
That being the case, I have a real appreciation for anyone who has a true talent in this skill. That’s why when I recently learned about the work of Heather Crawford, I was so impressed that I got a commissioned piece done and will likely request more as gifts and for home decor projects.
Please take a moment to check out her work on both her Facebook Page and official site. You’ll be glad you did.
A little more than a year and a half ago, I relocated to North Carolina. Once summer rolled around, my family and I a met another family. The lady of the house was a young woman by the name of Amber.
It wasn’t until after the sad day in which my dog took the trip to the “Rainbow Bridge” that I found out how talented of an artist she is.
Amber gave us a tile she decorated with in amazing and beautiful design done as a decal on white tile. Since then, I’ve learned that she has a Facebook page she calls “A Southern Thing Decals” and makes wonderful pieces that are both pretty and practical. She adds her designs to everything from t-shirts to water bottles to large wooden boards and more.
Check out her work below and visit the Facebook page for more info on items and commission requests.
This was for July but I guess the subject matter was so difficult that nobody wanted to take a try.

Sarah Puhala is a talented actress, singer and director who I have had the please of knowing for several years. Sarah got her she has B.A. in Theatre Arts from the Conservatory of Performing Arts at Point Park University and has a resume that would blow your socks off. So, to say she is an artist would be a massive understatement.
Only recently, however, did Sarah decide to venture into something a little different. She took a shot at using some art supplies previously owned by her late Aunt Mary. And the result is spectacular!
Take a look for yourself at the artwork she titled “A Season of Song” drawn by this young lady who modestly suggests that drawing is not her specialty.
And for more on Sarah and her work, you can check out her official website at www.sarahpuhala.com and you can find her on the IMDB too.
Above The Crowds Below
I hover above the crowds below
Looking up with glee
Though I only stay a second or two
They have come here just for me
Then I come back in increments
In different shades of light
To build an artwork among the stars
And to brighten up the night
Serving as a reflection
Of sacrifices long ago
I am the fusion of sight and sound
The most incredible show
As I have mentioned in a recent post, I am holding a monthly contest for readers to try to guess the subject of a photo. Check out the specifics here.
This is the first photo. Post your comments as to what you think it is and at the end of the month, a winner will be selected for the prize of his or her choice. If nobody gets it correct, which I am thinking is the most likely scenario, the closest guess will be the winner for the month.
