Jewelry Storage Safe


Hello! I hope you are doing well, it is raining here in Virginia today.

Jewelry safe: Do you travel? Do you have a safe and reliable place to hide your valuables. You can hide your money in your closet or under your clothes!  I sell a storage safe for small valuable items like money and jewelry that have been become very popular.

Front                                                                                     Back
                                                                      
Jewelry Safe: You not only get a beautiful padded coat hanger, but the safe folds up under the coat hanger and keeps your jewelry or money out of sight. It has clear vinyl pockets for keeping your valuables pieces stored separately and safely...No one will ever know that you have stored your valuables under your clothes! This a great way to keep your valuables like jewelry and money safe when you travel. Or if you need more room for storage you can just not fold it up and you still have your valuables stored safely.

Just roll it up into the coat hanger pocket .
Again this great if you are traveling
.It has Velcro fasteners

Each little decorative (trim) picture may be different on each safe. You may view and purchase the Jewelry Safe here, as well as my Fine Art Prints.

Abstract Leaves Fine Art Print


Hello from Virginia! I hope where ever you live you are having a great time today.  Our weather is warm today, up in the high eighties.

 When I started to painting this abstract painting of Whispering Leaves, I had a mental block and was just playing with colors.  I pulled my brush strokes through the paint and bits of red/orange, some yellow and some pretty grays appeared and the strokes resembled leaves.  There are three little white birds in the center of the leaves. 

 This fine art print can be purchased in several different sizes!

 I hope you like my work.  Please have a good day!

Two Black and White Abstract Fine Art Prints


Hello from Virginia! I hope where ever you live you are having a great time today.  Here in Virginia we are having great weather, the temperature dipped to 63 degrees last night, very unusual for August.

an  I love to paint abstract objects and when my client ask me to paint a black and white abstract to hang over their couch I was delighted to do so. These two abstracts were each 23.00 X 28.50 inches and were stunning hanging over the black leather couch. These are prints from the original paintings. They can be ordered in a gallery wrapped canvas print or can be framed and can be ordered in different sizes. I recently saw a bedroom with a black and white bedspread and other white furnishing, the prints would look gorgeous over the bed.

 I hope you like my art work. Please have a good day!
