Give Yourself a Dream Flower Finds a New Home

SOLD!! Give Yourself a Dream Flower, 38×40 inch art quilt by O.V. Brantley 2016.

My Give Yourself Flowers series reminds me to always be good to myself. In other words, don’t put your life on hold waiting for someone else to give you your heart’s desire.

I have really enjoyed working on this series of quilts, and they are some of my favorites. Maybe that is why they seem to sell so quickly.

Give Yourself a Dream Flower has been sold and shipped to her new owner. I hope her new owner is being good to herself.

 

I Believe in Angels #18 and #19 Find a New Home

SOLD!! I Believe in Angels #18, 28 x 31 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2011. 

I believe that my angels are always with me standing ready to jump in at a moment’s notice should I need them. That is why I love to incorporate angels in my quilts when possible.

Two of my angel quilts have found a new home. I Believe in Angels #18 and #19 were purchased by the same collector. I know they are gone to a new home.

SOLD!! I Believe in Angels #19, 32 x 34 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2011. 

I think it’s time to start some new angel quilts.

O.V.’s Never Say Never November

One of the activities on our Bali Tour was a Balinese  painting workshop. It was held in a beautiful art gallery.

It was good to be reminded how special it is to have time to create and to be taught by a master at his craft.

I am not a painter, but I enjoyed the journey.  Like my quilt, I Am Dancing in My Heart.

O.V.’s Never Say Never November

I always knew I loved elephants  They are a symbol of my sorority representing strength. I have collected them for years, and sometimes I included them in my quilts like my  Awesome African Elephants in My Garden #3.  

India and O.V. riding an elephant

I always thought it would be nice to ride one, but I never expected to do so.Well, this is my “Never say Never November, right? I am happy to report that I rode an elephant!

During my vacation to Bali, India and I visited the Elephant Safari Park in Ubud, Bali. Riding an elephant was fun, but being kissed by one was over the top amazing!

Kissed by an elephant

The best thing about the elephants we met was that they seemed happy! I swear the elephant we rode seemed to be smiling.

A smilng elephant

it was an unforgettable experience. India and I haven’t stopped smiling since.
