When ever I travel I love to buy work from local artist. Not only do I have unique pieces and support other artist, I have an artwork that hold memories of a particular place and adventure.
So, I was very excited that on the tails of the great painting I received from my Aunt and Uncle, I just got this as a Birthday gift!!
So cool, and even more amazing a 14 year old young man created this!
My closest Aunt THE Aunt*, as my brother and I refer to her, bought this in Anguilla. The young man is hoping to get into art AND fashion. I hope I get to meet him, when I travel there again. I love the sparkle detail. The figures bodies are made of caning material. Just so cool.
Now I have to find the perfect spot for it. Right now it's propped up on my bookshelf.
*(Aunt Sally is my Dad's only sister, and she moved to be closer to my brother and I when we were young, so we grew up with her very close to us. I apprenticed with her as a shopper, she has a great talent for doing any type of shopping. We have so much fun, and now I am a professional as well. She is also a fabulous cook, channeling my grandmother. And she always supports my shoe habit!!)
