Spring in Wisconsin

It was still snowing last week here in Milwaukee.  For those of you who know me personally, you know that I describe myself as both an artist and a sailor.  Those two worlds combined to launch my NauticalSilks.com line of hand painted silks.  But what some of you may not know is that art can show up in some very unexpected places…..

Over the years, my husband and I have become kind of known around the bay as the boat with the painted sails.  Usually, this is the way we would “decorate” our boat for one of our favorite fundraisers:  Louie’s Last Blast to benefit Children’s hospital.  Nothing excites me more than to discover art in an unexpected place.  In a sea of traditionally white sails, these are truly unexpected!    Happy Spring everyone!
