Antique Bottle

I started with my Carolina blue drawing and started laying in color

 I love painting flowers in bottles and I have a little bit of a habit of  collecting bottles.  One of my favorite places to get them is Gibsonville Antiques.
If your ever in Gibsonville, NC you should stop by and check them out.  They have renovated an old mill and it looks fabulous!

*If you are interested in collecting this piece please see the ordering instructions on the right hand side of the blog.  Thanks!

Hawfields Community Days

I know some of you have missed me because I have been out of the show loop for a while but today I got back in the game! Thanks to all my fans that stopped by! What do you think of my all new setup? I am absolutely in LOVE with it! Did you know that I take credit now? I'm trying to make it really easy to own an Amber Cauley original. So easy in fact I'll give you my kid for free! *grins* If you see something you love shoot me an email at Oh and cross your fingers that its still there because they aren't sitting around for long!

Charleston SC

 Super Yum Yum Yummy!  While on vacation this summer we went to a fish place we saw on Man vs Food.  And let me tell you it was fantastic!  My mouth waters every time I think about it.  I'll never be able to eat at another fish place again!  If you are ever in Charleston SC look up Bowen's Island.  (thats actually the name of the restaurant)
Thats fish, shrimp, crab cakes, hushpuppies and french fries on that bad boy!
Thats my super hunky honey chowin' down!

Anyone else think he looks like a zombie about to eat my face off?

Of course no meal would be complete without dessert!  On our way back to the beach house we stopped at one of my hubby's favorite places from his childhood.  Ye Olde Fashion Ice Cream Shoppe. We ordered the "Pig Trough"!  The menu said pregnant ladies get a free pickle when they ordered it!  Its six scoops of Blue Bell icecream the size of a ladies softball with 6 toppings, 2 bananas, whip cream and 6 cherries!  

I really did think I was going to puke!  Brian and I ate the whole thing!!!

Charleston, SC  totally a thumbs up!

Beach plein air

I don't know why I didn't post this before!  It is a pastel painting that I did while on vacation back in July.  I had all these high aspirations of running every morning and painting everyday.  Well, I took a vacation from both!  Apparently I love to shell and didn't know it.  So I got up every morning to pick up seashells.  I did feel guilty about not painting so I did one at least :)

Happy dance!

My daughter started kindergarten!  Which means more studio time!  Yippee!!!  So I did my happy dance this morning and picked some roses and drank a whole lot of coffee!  To all those out there that said I would cry when she started not know me so well! (said in Mr. Fudd's voice, don't ask me why Mr. Fudd I'm too busy doing my happy dance!)  I'm thinking about setting up this Saturday at Gibsonville's downtown greens, every Saturday they have a farmers/crafters market.  Would you come if I set up?!?   :)
