Nov 12, 2009 Eleni Art Show at Caffe' Tazza, Tyler, TX

Hope you can make it to my Solo Art Show coming up Nov. 12, 2009 at Caffe' Tazza in Tyler, TX. It will be one night only, from 5-9PM. Come out and enjoy some of my newest works, three little series of peoples of the Earth. Terra, Pelagos, and Sahra. If you've never tried my favorite little Cafe' this side of the Agean Sea, you've got to check out Caffe' Tazza! Their cappuccino is authentic and exactly right. They serve food, and pastries and even gelato and sorbetto! Oh, and Italian wines and beer. As always, as part of their "Evenings on the Patio" series, there will be live music, this time provided by Randy York.

Should be a great way to spend a fall evening in town.

See you there!

"Life Abundant"

Strengthed, Inspired -

The past two years have really been instructive and expanding. I wanted to share with you a few thoughts.

First of all that God is GREAT. He alone is GREAT. The trials that I have weathered by His strength & help, show me ever so clearly that He is so merciful & full of lovingkindness & is an ever present help. He has strengthened my soul and my being through the fire and then He also mercifully has attended to my release and healing. I don't think we share with others enough when God answers our prayers or when He does great works in our lives. So, I wanted you to know that He is full of justice and attends to our every need, not just the big things, but is so attentive to even the smallest most tender and personal aspects of our lives too.

Secondly, my art will be taking on a new direction, as God leads me to take on a new direction. I will be drawing on the strength and lessons that He has given to me, and pouring it into my paintings even more than ever. So many subtle things has He shown me, and I hope to adequately portray those things with power and inspiration in the years to come in my pieces. For example, the concept of God is my covering... I am really looking forward to sharing with you what I have felt in experiencing this first hand, and thereby have my art hopefully declare the wondrous works of God as a light and a comfort and hope to all those who view it.

I am excited about this inspiration and help, and can't wait to share it with you.

Coming soon... :)

All the best,

Eleni's Treasures jewelry coming soon!

My website is in the process of being updated, and

soon, you will see the addition of "Eleni's Treasures"

where you will be able to view, request, or purchase

my handmade jewelry designs, directly from the
Eleni Originals website... I won't be on Etsy anymore.

So, if you've clicked on my Elenimou by Etsy link lately,

you've noticed that there are no items posted there. This is

because I'm moving the jewelry to my webstie instead.

Streamlining makes sense! So, I have a lot of new designs

that i've recently created, and they'll be ready to view soon! (here's a little preview)
Hope you like them!

Old Greek Proverb say:

When the inner voice says that something is amiss,

The wise man stops not to put shoes on before running out the door~

There is more to action than step by step responses

The wise know when to leap to action

The foolish keep looking for their shoes.

...a blog entry starring: Sasaa, the livestock GUARDIAN dog.... didn't get them memo on the whole works well with others thing... able to distinguish the livestock from the feed bowl thing.

it's been a hard day on poor Sasaa... at least that's what she wants me to believe. it's a day of setbacks here on the farm. hopefully tomorrow will unveil a kinder gentler Sasaa.

the Unveiling of Terra II.... can be seen at Urban Eats on a rotating basis.

and further more: as we're really tired from setting up all that and moving all that! :) you know me....doing my best one day at a time to overwhelm the masses! ;)
just doing my little part!
glad i did the expo. hoping something will come of it.
here are some shots from the GRAND display! (it was 10 ft. tall!) thanks to hubby, Dana!


how the show went....

so i've learned that i don't need to take 50 or more paintings to a show to show what i do. duh, huh?


i'll BRING less to the table next time, and that's what my website is for.

am i a statue or just bored?

so here i am wondering WHAT am i doing/?? maybe i should just do a Blog entry and figure it out. eh? pondering the value of dragging my paintings hither and thither (yon?) yaWN... and making FABulous displays so that people... PEOple can STRIDE through my display looking like they are inspecting for water damage on the ceiling.
the artists life.
this is my 2nd show in as many weeks. I'm getting my name out there, i'm stressing about if i'm good enough or if i "know" what i'm doing enough. Now I realize all that doesn't even matter. it doesn't EVen matter. I have an Impressive display, a LARGE body of work and it's different. that's what no formal training gets you that i never want to loose... originality. So, I suppose it's worth it.
so i have a new website now... check it out! great job, Kelli ( and i have new cards...very swanky... good job (go Paige & Jared), and i'm enthuzed about my recent work. in love actually with Terra II. Fierce.
so, i'm thinking i may blog now and then, but not too personal... cause that's just not me...
check it later~
ps... yes, i KNOW i don't punctuate and capitalize "correctly" that's ON Purpose, for the sake of conversational style.
