Taking a Break

I can't believe what a whirlwind my life has been so far this year!  I had my very first art show in April, and it was such a huge success!  I have another show scheduled in February 2013 at the Stephens Gallery and several commissions to complete between now and then.  As a result, I'll be taking a break from blogging here at Zesty Nest.  You can still find me pinning everything from fabulous rooms to art to words that inspire me over on Pinterest, and I'll be blogging at our art guild's blog Lemley House Art Guild.  My own personal art website with my current collection of work can be found at bethwhitlow.com.

What I've Been Up to Lately

I've been neglecting my beloved Zesty Nest blog lately, but I've been working on something very exciting!  As it turns out, I'm having an art show(!!!!!)  along with Jeannie Stone here in town at the River Valley Arts Center in April.  I've been busy busy busy trying to finish my paintings.  I have just one more to go and hopefully it will be dry by the show.  So if you live in the area, please come check it out.  The opening is April 1 from 1-3 pm, but the show will run for an entire month.

Our show flyer made by moi!

This is a series I'm titling "Speak to Me," which uses fashion (i.e. fascinators) to describe each dog's personality and represent the unspoken expectations they must have by how we treat them as equals in our families (seriously - I know my dog's must feel some sense of entitlement).  Why "Speak to Me?" Well I forgot to mention that each dog is speaking.  For example, the dog in my flyer is titled "They said there would be a sit-down meal, but all the served was light hors d'oeuvres." - Sadie.  I'm very excited about these paintings and can't wait to show them off!

Check out my archives and other artists I paint with at The Lemley House.

Colorful Library

While cleaning house today (which I stopped doing to play around on pinterest and upload this image...oops) I found last months issue of Southern Living and was immediately smitten by this wonderful porch converted into a study.  And of course those leather chairs and the adorable pooch!
