“Hi Etty, Marshmellow is the neighbors cat. She comes to visit me because I give her hot dog treats that she loves.  She is very adventurous and disappears sometimes for days staying with neighbors. I did this pastel July 8, 2020. And I enjoy doing flowers from Trader Joe’s.” – Joan Sullivan


Olivia Chavez

“The piece is a page from my mixed-media art journal, I used watercolor, gouache, ink, and collage (butterflies).  I was inspired by a quote from Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo, I’ve titled it  ‘Flores Eternas’.” – Thank you, Olivia P Chavez, aka “eya”

“I have been painting people enjoying being out together.”
