Marionette's New Zazzle Shop and Holiday "Virtual" Craft Fair

I've been busy getting things ready for the holiday shopping season and have just launched a new products shop featuring my art designs on Zazzle  https://www.zazzle.com/store/marionette_taboniar?rf=238143080802946144


Zazzle has some really fun products like puzzles and flip flops!  Check back often to see what incredible sales are happening that day or week.  Plus, if you become a fan of Zazzle and wish to order often, they have an amazing free shipping program called ZazzleBlack:  https://www.zazzle.com/zazzleblack


Plus, I have added lots of new designs to my Society6 products shop https://society6.com/marionettetaboniar

 

Shop here for comforters, rugs, cell phone cases, wall art, mugs, shower curtains, and much more!!  They even make furniture with my designs.  Almost every day there is a great sale on a set of products so check back often.  They even offer free shipping from time to time. 


Save the date for our Kauai "Virtual" Craft Fair which will be taking place from November 27 to December 1, 2020.  I will be participating along with some of Kauai's best artisans.  Check back right before the beginning of the fair to see each artisan's special discount.  https://paradisecraftfair.wixsite.com/kauai-event

Keeping Busy with Art During Covid-19

The last few months have been hard on all of us.  Who knew we would be hit by a global pandemic in 2020.  Virtually all of our lives have changed in more ways than one.  There's a feeling of isolation, fear, and for some depression.  If we've been lucky enough to escape getting the virus, there is still a lingering worry about how long this situation will last.

Luckily, Kauai has been blessed with only a few cases as our leadership here has acted quickly and has been doing amazing things to protect us.   We can finally enjoy the beaches and beauty of Kauai once again as long as we social distance.  For that I am thankful. 

I am also thankful for spending more time with my husband, gardening, and of course, painting.  I've even found a little time to do some writing.  Having a creative outlet is important in a time like this.  It can be healing and relaxing.  It gives you something positive to concentrate on for a few hours instead of checking the latest depressing headlines.  Get creative!!!

Here are some of my newest paintings that I've been working on:






















These original watercolors can be found at my website at: https://www.kauai-fine-art.com/shop/5797998/original-watercolors


I have also been teaching "live" watercolor classes through Zoom.  I look forward every week to my classes as I get to "see" and chat with my watercolor buddies.  This has also been therapeutic for me and my students.  It mixes art with a little social interaction.

Stay safe and healthy and keep creating!  We will get through this :-)

Aloha,

Custom Watercolor Paintings by Marionette

Every now and then I get a special request from one of my art collectors to do a custom, commission painting.  It is so much fun working with the client on building a special, one-of-a-kind painting just for them.  I can paint just about anything, but my most popular is the "house portrait".  Here are some examples:





You can find out more info on my house portraits at:  https://www.kauai-fine-art.com/listing/745808144/custom-house-portrait-house-painting  There are several different sizes you can choose from.  Just use the drop down box called "dimensions". 


So, if you are looking for that special gift (or even a gift for yourself) I would be happy to work with you on a custom house portrait.  The house can be anywhere, not just Hawaii :-)

Aloha,
Marionette

Kauai Art by Marionette now featured at L&L Hawaiian Barbecue in Virginia

If you are a local or frequent visitor to Hawaii then you will know that one of best places to grab a quick plate lunch is L&L Hawaiian Barbecue.  This chain is scattered throughout the islands with over 60 locations in the state of Hawaii.  Even California has quite a few L&Ls, but there are only a handful of them located in the rest of the U.S.  Just recently, one opened up in Chesapeake, Virginia and they somehow came across my art and decided they wanted it for their restaurant decor.  Needless to say, I was thrilled!  They chose a nice variety of art from my hula, flowers, cottages, landscapes and sea life collections.  They wanted something large, so they decided to order large prints on canvas from my website: https://marionette-taboniar.pixels.com/



I think they turned out wonderful!  So if you are on the east coast and get a craving for some Hawaiian food, check out their Facebook page at:  https://www.facebook.com/lnlchesapeake.va/

My mouth is already watering with the thought of their barbecue chicken, lau laus, sesame garlic chicken wings, pineapple dole whip, chicken katsu, kalua pork and the list goes on and on!  Good thing there is an L&L right next door to my studio in Waimea, Kauai!! 


A Big Mahalo to the owner of the Chesapeake L&L for choosing my art to add a little "Hawaii" to their decor!!!

Aloha,
Marionette
