the weekend round up

Best in Show Brief
This weekend was the opening for the group show, 100% Pure Florida at Fifth Ave Gallery in Melbourne Florida. At the opening reception my paintings were awarded Best in Show. The prize is a solo show in June at the gallery. Needless to say, I am very excited and honored (and ready to get back into the studio).

I want to thank all of my family and friends for coming out to support me during the opening reception.  And to give a very special thank you to Marc Stone, who is the best friend and personal cheering section a girl could ask for.

Here are two images of the paintings in the show:

In other news my dear friend, Marcie Paper's work is up in Richmond VA at 1708 Gallery. She is an amazing artist so check out her stuff!

  1. Hi Sara,

    This is Misty's neighbor Michelle. How have you been? Misty told me about your blog and how you take pictures of your steps in your paintings. I love seeing how your paintings develope and evolve into the final piece. She said you were in town because you had some work in the 5th Ave gallery, I was out of town otherwise I would have stopped by, I really like the new pieces.

    I am actually driving up to Jacksonville for Guard drill this weekend, Friday around noon. And I plan on stopping by St Augustine to take a photo break and take some pictures for fun. Do you recommend some spots or landmarks? I have gone to the lighthouse before, but I might go again since I have upgraded my camera; maybe even go to the fort. Also do you know of anything going on in St Augustine Friday? Like do they do a first Friday in downtown; or a gallery show, etc? Thanks for any info. I am going to eat at Present Moments Cafe, west on King St past US 1, I eat there every time I am in town, it's my favorite vegan/raw food restaurant. If you and Mark have no plans Friday night you two are more than welcome to join me or meet up for a drink? I'll even go to a wine tasting if you know of one? Then I'll drive to JAX after dinner.

    Take care. -Michelle (
